Re: Daiwa 731A fly reel
Mine looks almost exactly like that. It's new, also.
One difference I see is that mine has slotted screws holding it together instead of Phillips.
The other thing is the stamped lettering on the back. Mine is not as deep. You can't see any raised metal around the lettering.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body,
but rather to skid in broadside, totally worn out and proclaiming, 'Wow. What a ride!!!'
