New ones are black, old ones red. New they go for @ $59. Great flathead cat reels. A real winch. You could dredge up a Buick with them! I love mine.
Actually reds were 2nd gen aka higher gear ratio. Black was the original, lower gear ratio and only made a year or so. Other then that they are good. I got one with a bronze spool sitting in storage.
