Exclamation Pflueger medalist 1598RC-Where to get-New or Used!!??

Had lots of these at one time but 'some move from there to here' apparently took care of that. Would love to get a couple (spools too). Google search was very unkind ...

Wow, is it possible that they don't make them anymore?
I had a nice 1498 DA in my hands the other day but didn't buy it.
Now I wish I had

Try to get one pre 1979, when production moved overseas. I understand that the older reels are higher quality and will retain their value.

"1979 - Production moved overseas to China, Japan and Hong Kong, Shakespeare Medalists had the reel foot assembly crimped and the contours of the foot were coarser and less refined. The letters CJ (Japan) and AK (Hong Kong, China) appeared after the model numbers. The reel foot had the words Japan, China or Hong Kong inscribed in it. The words "Pflueger Medalist" and/or "Shakespeare" appeared on the spool latch cover."

"Pflueger Medalist Reels - A History - Fly Angler's OnLine Volumn 7 week 41

The P foot makes the reel compatible to newer rods.

One-Pfoot for Pflueger Medalists

Folks built one type/generation of another for close to 60+ years (maybe more). Owned many of them and only had one 'give it up' on me ... well it was a King Salmon .... Bugger bent the frame and that had never happened before ... but 20# leader and the drag screwed down tight ... may, mind you, just may .... have had something to do with that.

Did hit the e bay link above and did a 'buy it now' and asked if 'he' had more, and which ones.
