Its the alvey 650E5, my favourite landbased Snapper, Mulloway, Salmon etc reel, the direct wind "E" series with smooth drag.

You can easily control big fish e.g snagging you or lift em up onto the rocks, as the handles are directly attached to the spool, the brakes can be applied instantly stopping a big Snapper taking you into a snag or when it wants to run just release your grip off the power handle & the smooth drag takes over "Best of both".
