I've read that airex was one of the first importers of spinning reels into the US. Bache Brown was a famous fisherman in the 1930's and had been importing the new style reels from europe. Airex began producing the master reel series in 1947. The company was bought up by Lionel shortly thereafter. Around 1964, the company was sold to another manufacturer (can't recall the name). So.... looks like if you have an airex it is a fifties era reel (give or take a year or two either way on the decade).

Thats all the info I've got.
