Hate to burst your bubble, but spoke to the seller, and this reel was as produced at Valley Mfg. other than the handle changed out to a 600 series graphite. Big tip for you all is the reel has the 5 stack drag and to plain bars that Keith produced for thi reel. The plastic reel base was narrowed to 2".

On my own 521 I replaced the plastic reel base with a narrowed aluminum, and removed the top post and installed threaded inserts at the top of the inside cage rings.
You cant have it both ways. On one hand you say that you burst my bubble which is another way saying that your wrong. Then on the other hand you admit the handle is a 600 series graphite which makes it not 100% factory which falls under the category of frankensteined. Though one could argue the minor technicality.

For $860. it should be 100% factory and better be signed by Carl N himself!

I dont know what your so butt hurt about,its not your money and no ones forcing anyone to buy anything.All you have done is slam someone else even after multiple people have said its correct besides the handle which could have come directly from the factory,who knows.Get over it and move along.

I guess I paid for a giled lily with that rod you sold me Ha AL ?
Your a total shame Michael. You screwed me over the first time you bought my D-8 because you convinced me your word was good as gold. Hence, I should trust you, and not receive a deposit. And now your trying to screw me again and tarnish my name over the OBD8? Im loaded for bear so, If you want to take up the issue then be my guest and start another thread.

Carl was long dead when these reels were produced. Unless you were there at the time of manufacture then you really don't know what you're talking about.
