- Pecos was a model manufactured by Pecheur Ecossais of France. In the mid 1930s, this company located in Paris, made a few variations of the Pecos reel. During the production of the first model, the reel and its design concepts were given to Carpano & Pons for further refinement to the overall reel plus the manufacturing of the internal components. The Pecos model, although extremely similar to the La Canne à Peche versions, was also the predecessor of Carpano & Pons initial offering of their version of the CAP.
