Hi Ufenando,

I personally don't have any experience with these reels, but after checking around I found some reviews for the Marten 61 and nobody was very happy with it. I would not buy that one. As for the other one, it is a older reel so I couldn't find much about it. Buying that reel would really depend on what fish you are going for.
What price range are these reels,and what is the price range that you are willing to spend? I'm sure that you could get a reel that is newer and that would better, for a price close to those, but like I said before it really depends what your target fish is.

Hi Ufenando welcome to the forum.

I have owned, and very much miss my Martin model 61. It is so small and light perfect for tidy lines and streams. To many people today[ Martin & Cortland] products are the underdogs regarding today's fancy stuff. I grew-up on both.

I am still to this day using my Martin Classic series I bought in PA in 1984.

The main thing that is a not so desirable, there is no palming spool on both reels.

They are both great treats too use..
