Had some spare time so I was scouring ebay looking for a bargain and ran across a lot of 6500 C3s mostly from Japan, several in the $500+ price range. Some of the descriptions said factory tuned, whatever that means and were painted different colors, had big game handles, etc., but nothing that I think would make them stand out. I'm not as interested in the reels as I am where to get some of what ever those people are smoking because it must be some really killer stuff.

Didn't see that one, however I did buy a 7000 for $99 from England on eBay.

There were many over $300. I just read with amazement that there would be that many people willing ti pay that for a $120 reel.

It's called supply and demand. People from the U.S. don't pay that, but those sellers ship worldwide. People from other countries will pay that if the seller will ship to them.

maybe they had custom internals?

inflation is wicked. 6500C3's used to be $60-65 back around 2000's and they were made in Sweden. i bought a bunch of used ones on ebay back then for around $40-45 shipped.

The 6500c3s are still made in Sweden. There are some 6500 Abu's made in China that even though they say 6500, they are total junk. The Swedish made reels will say so in the crank side cover.
