Ohaver & O'Bannon, The American Reel Co. Fishing Reels

Ohaver & O'Bannon, The American Reel Co. - Indianapolis, IN

Ohaver & O'Bannon patented a reel design in 1882 and assigned it to the American Reel Co. The reel design was unique in that it had a 10 to 1 multiplying action. The reel incorporates the November 14, 1971 Silas B. Terry reel foot patent. About 5 months after the reel patent was granted, Terry Clocked sued Ohaver & O'Bannon for breach of contract after about 900 reels had been partially built.
