For the last 20 plus years I have used a Heddon 310, I also have a Heddon 320. Can anyone tell me anything about these 2 reels, what WT rod and line are they used with, I cant find anything of the web about these reels? My 16 yr daughter want to start fly fishing and I want to set-up a rod for her. thanks!

Trip-

They look like very nice vintage reels. I found the following photo of Heddon 300, 310, and 320. My guess is that the 320 would have been for a 7 weight rod, the 310 for a 5-6 weight rod, and the 300 for a 4 weight rod. Hope this helps.

If they are Heddon's they must have been manufactured as Hardy Lightweight Series knockoffs. In sizes they resemble the Featherweight, LRH, and Princess.
