I found a very clean and smooth Calcutta 50 at a Flea Market for 75$...is that a fair price?..it's a gold reel with a little boat rash.

Side side cover off. Adjust small red (might be green) "weights". Click two (opposite sides of the spool) all the way out till the "click". Try casting again. Loosen side tension knob just so the bait starts falling by it's own weight.

....thanks for the reply...I am very impressed with how far this little reel will throw an in weighted wacky worm.
