Hi I have a reel ALCEDO MICRON PAT No. 21224 which I am selling, I'm from Buenos Aires Argentina. Nicolas Montero Somoza.
Ask price that is 1000us.
This magnificent reel is incredible.
Everything works, pickup, and all its mechanisms.
This beautiful collector or to use (but would be a shame to use it) is best to store and display in the library! lol:)
Greetings
Nicolas.
