    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.

    from my understanding carl used to mark reels that he loaned out to friends and representatives to test with colored washers and handles.

    the blue that those parts are made from matches another "blue" blackie that was on this board a while back, its more of a smurf blue than the later blue runs of whole reels.

    cool piece you have there sir :)
