With a little work it could be a nice reel and might be worth as much as $40-$50
Don't mean to be a downer, I'd expect the reel to go for at least 1/2 that price. I do however find the reels drag design very interesting, It looks like it pulls to increase drag on the plate, rather than push like a medalist.

Interesting adaptation, that I bet is equally as effective. If the reel/rod combos were in my possession, I'd definatley take them out for a spin, but don't think think there is anything of huge value.

Its not a bad purchase, as you will for sure make money by selling the items individually.

If sold individually on e-bay, I'd expect to gain 10-25$ per item.
