Default Score!

I am in the process of building a bamboo rod so the old man was looking for a classic reel for me on e-bay. Look what we scored.

But look at it here:

Hi Joni,

Wow, what a beauty. Is that wood on the handle? Go with red thread.

Joni, I found the same model lying around collecting dust, along with an old fiberglass silaflex. The reel is currently disassembled for cleaning. Is it something I should consider valuable?

Mine is more of a purplish shade with a little different design on the crank side of the reel housing. The crank itself is the same. Yours looks a little more attractive, but it is the same model number as yours, though.

I need to get that thing put back together.

Nice one you landed there. A classic on a bamboo rod. What weight of line will you be putting on it?
