    Im looking for a Red Newell R533 series. I would preferably like the reel with the original box, but its not a deal breaker if there isnt the original box. Please send me a PM if you have one. Thank you!

    Bump.

    FYI, Im not looking for a collectors item. Im looking for a Red Newell to go with my jig rod. Dont expect me to pay an outrageous amount of money for it. PM me if you have one and are serious about selling.

    Maybe blue... or green, but IMO, red newells shouldnt be selling for no $300. I have seen R533's for as high as $380.

    less than 40 Green 533's, versus more than 400 red series. Which would you rather pay more money for?

    Blue because blue is my favorite...not because there are fewer. 400 is still not a lot. Good luck.

    Same here... I would love a blue, but my rod is red. Hoping to find one for a good price. Thanks for the bumps Anthony.

    Bump. Anyone in the Laguna/OC area with red 533's? If not, an R454 or R546 will do... thank you.

    The vast majority of the red reels were sent to China because they loved the chrome and red, and tried to get Carl to make gold and red reels.

    Don't have a clue about connecting with tackle sales, or shops in China, but would guess they figured out it was too big for their fishing techniques.

    Yes, you can verify this with Richard Hightower the sales rep for Newell, as well as other fishing products.

    Dang... How odd. I wouldn't even know where to begin with hunting them down over there. Thanks for the info though, Jerry.

    Why such big reels for jigging? A 300 series would be perfect for jigging. FYI I've seen prices for the red's:
    200 series: $200-$250
    300 series: $250-$300
    400 series: $280 seen only one sold on Hawaii CL
    500 series: $300-$450
    600 series: $400-$450

    This is just a recent trend on prices for the Red's.
    Add $100+ for blues or greens

    Check eBay:red 200 series $300, blue 300 series $310+
