@ Edd Barrett : See the book " STRIKE " written by Stephan Schoeman in the 40's / 50's it often makes reference to the reel in the context of fishing for red steenbras and poenskop (black musselcracker) in the old days. Also mentioned the spools that used to break under the strain prior to it being made of improved materials.

The narrow 49 spools were the problem and they also hold to little mono.

That is why the 49A were build for the South African market, only. Their spools were much stronger build.
