Boy, oh boy have I been adding reels to the Available Reels page this summer!! Here's the latest one I just listed for you:
This one is a really good knock off of a Pfluerger Medalist. I'll tell you that other than it being blue, it's a dead ringer for a Medalist. It's unmarked as to who made it, the only markings being on the foot: "Japan". I suspect Olympic or some other higher end Japanese manufacturer made it.
Everything on the reel works as it should. The drag adjustment knob is a little finicky (it does work) & there's a minor loss of chrome on the reel foot, but otherwise this reel is in great shape.
It comes, as all the reels I have listed do, with a custom fit reel case. This one's case is a matching color blue.
This is a really good chance to get a Medalist style reel for less than what you'd pay if it had the Pflueger name on it. For more information & to see more photos of this quality reel, please visit the Available Reels page. Of course if you have any questions about anything you see there, just contact me.
