    Ok, I just saw a reasonable one on the big Bay, currently 200 including freight for a 2500c....
    Don't think it had the box and paper work...

    I reckon i would appreciate an old done up reel over my LTD 15 which will only decline in price the older reels would hold or possibly increase in value

    How are the drag on those vintage reels tho?

    if tidy blacklab its an ok price
    the only reason the small abus are priced like this is the japanese love them and pay top dollar

    and gazza if it still works and does the job who cares about depreciation on a $200 reel .

    the drags were fit for use back then and still are, modern reels with 5kg drag ratings on a reel size that you only fish 6pd like are a crock of shite

    Gazza, the Penn reels I've Modded up, have crazy drags. BUT, I've upgraded all the gears as well, otherwise they would strip.
    The Penn Senator reels are awesome to Mod, My 4/0's are pulling over 30lb drag easily with the up grade kits...
    Don't know much about the abu's...

    I keep an eye out every now and again fot the old penn marone and black models they do come up there is one listed now with new gears but at $100 if it needs upgrades im unsure what that will make the deal overall or what its value will be completed
