The Bantam 1000

Catalogued in 1981. This reel is similar in appearance to the 100 but the 1000 has a cast “Accurized” frame which helped reduce the weight from 7.7oz to 6.8oz. It was advertised as having “Super strong gears”, but the term “Super Gears was not used till 1982 when the 1000 SG was introduced. Paddle knobs like Lew`s Speed Spool were used.

The Bantam 1000SG

Catalogued 1982-83. This reel was the first to use the term “Super Gears” & there was really no mechanical difference between the 1000 & the 1000 SG.
