    Hey everyone I have this old reel with no box, it is in really good condition and everything works properly. I was wondering if anyone knows what they would sell for? Thanks

    Searching on ebay for completed listings in the last 30 days brought up 17 reels anywhere from $58 to $127, fair to new condition and some with box.

    New in the box, they were around a hundred bucks.

    Great reel for inshore, light saltwater fishing with bait or artificials
    Yours looks like a left hand version, which would be fun with the plastics.

    Not to sound cliche', but this is one of those reels that defines the statement "it is worth what someone is willing to pay". Hugely sought out in the past as a freshwater salmon/steelhead and Bass fisherman reel alike. Great workhorse reel and really set the tone for alot of fisherman. Preceded the Curado's and continued to be a mainstay. Nice little reels and I am sure that $50-$75 is the range that it would probably go for.

    Great reel, but parts are almost impossible to find...
