Bough this reel used a while back and I just don't use it very much, I have two and barely use one.
I only used it in freshwater, but you can see in the pictures it was used in saltwater at some point in its life as there is some pitting/scratches inside the reel near where the button engages. I tried doing some light sanding to it to help smooth it over, but didn't seem to do much. Someone with more experience may be able to replace the frame of the reel or even fix the pitting with some putty. The reel is still functional, but is a little noisy and could probably use a good deep clean.
Still a very rare reel to find with box, only thing missing is the reel wrench.
Functionality - 8
Appearance - 8
I am asking 150$. For 175$ I will throw in a used Judy Wong American Rodsmith cranking rod, it's in good shape. Reel is located in League City, would like to meet locally.
Please PM. Thank you.
