Thread: Score!

  1. 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.

    Now two problems....one, I already bought GREEN SILK for the wraps on my bamboo and two, it is right hand retrieve.



    But look at it here:

    Way to go, Joni! That is a beautiful reel!

    Save the green silk for your next one?

    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?

    For me $45. LOL They are just so classy looking. Is yours red also?

    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?

    A 5 or that is what I am building. Probably go with my favorite, RIDGELINE.
