Hello to all,

I thought I would share a Made in Japan reel that I had recently serviced for a tackle dealer that sells on EBAY. This is an interesting reel for a couple of reasons. A really wildly designed handle. No lube port screw, phillips head machine screws for the face plate, all the moving parts inside are based on a 304 design but pretty crude. bail wire assemble is a bad copy of the 330, nut on threads for the end of the line guide and a bent end going into a hole on a slot screw. The reel housing is a cast piece with the spool shaft slot being milled out. Notice on the back of the housing that there are no screw ports for the slide mount. Another interesting thing is the pinion gear is nylon. See below for a few pictures. Cheers

Regards, Scott
