1988 Silver Reed EX44 Serial # 84011882 1988 Silver Reed EX44 typewriter, Serial # 84011882 Tas Kyprianou's 1988 Silver Reed EX44 typewriter. 2023-09-13 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Tas Kyprianou: 1988 Silver Reed EX44 Serial # 84011882 By far my favourite Daisy Wheel. Looks like something out of a 1970's Sci Fi movie and types like a dream.
The keyboard is YUMMY both in terms of feel and ASMR. There's no noticeable lag like my other Daisy Wheels and the Gothic Mini 15 typeface is sharp and pretty.
My Canons knock spots off this in terms of features but this shames them both in terms of sheer typing enjoyment.
Fairly rare I think, only made for two years. I spotted this by chance whilst looking for replacement ribbons for my EX32.

Like the A Team, if you can find them / it (and it's working), buy one.

UK member with Greek Cypriot heritage, living in London.
Relatively new to the hobby - My first machine was an Everest Mod 90 that I bought after watching a Violet Evergarden anime in December 2021.
My collection now consists of 40 machines. Nice round number. Time to stop I reckon. . .

My absolute favourite remains (just) my 1939 Royal KMM. For me, it's both the prettiest and the "warmest" to type on. It has "Majik" (with a nod to Sandy1)
I count my blessings that I am lucky enough to have amassed such a beautiful bunch.
