Ben Wright's Spinning Reel Report for October 2015

OCTOBER 2015

TRICKS OR TREATS ????

TRICKS------------------
Listed as an Abu Cardinal 555? cut-a-way salesman sample exc+ question
is was this a standard model
with the side plate removed ?? it sold @ 99.00

Listed as an Abu Cardinal 33 per seller Grey unpainted rare 1976 exc+
w/wood box for 33CDL foot appears
to be double stamped with S/N 760301
the grey reels are known as test reels by most. one known has 1975
marked on the bottom of the foot.
the problem I have is that the s/n on the foot is marked 760301 which
happens to be for a 33 re-pro
circa 1992.
I did see a grey Zebco cardinal 3 many years ago.
was listed with a starting bid of 500.00 with no bids was re-listed with
a current bid of 310.00 will be re- listed
in my Nov report.
