A few years ago I recommended the J.W. Young 1540 reel as a nice match for the Loop Xact 9140.

It has recently come to my attention that not all these reels were manufactured with the same style foot.

The ones I am familiar with have a brass foot that is painted black, and it generally fits most reel seats.

Apparently there were also some fitted with a chrome-finish foot that is too fat for modern reel seats.

Just a heads-up for anyone considering purchasing one of these reels. -- AJ
