Interesting reel in excellent condition. I sent it with some other reels to Alan Tani for service. I assume it has new bearings and greased carbon fiber drag washers. Functions perfectly. Yes, there are very slight cracks at a few expected side plate screw locations but very hard to see. I don't know the reason for the blue handle and washer but it came to me that way and probably has an interesting history. I have the clamp but no box. Someone should enjoy this reel at the great price of ***SOLD***. PayPal gift. Located in Olympia, Wa.
