1/2 to 2/3rds of the lowest price you can buy one for new.


this has to be the most disrespectful and disgusting thread I've ever seen posted

The best collectible in the Int'l line would be the 50th Year Annv.Limited Edition Run of the 50W back in the early 80's,I believe 82 or 83 maybe...
They had a special GOLD Plated Spacer Bar with the logo. I worked for Penn Reels in their Phila.Plant when they were made.. Wish I would of got a few of them then... Oh Well.

NightStrikes, thanks. This one isn't the 50th year anni. But it is a 50W international from I'm guessing early 80's? or late 70's im not exactly sure. But it is new in the box with paperwork, tools,lube,and bag. Do you have a price range to what it may be worth now? Thanks so much again

SurfKing,I don't believe there is much interest around these parts with offshore tackle.. You might fine some interested parties on a more diticated offshore fourm/website where someone might be into collecting
some older stuff.But I am really not all that sure just how collectible those reels are these days or if they are much different that they are putting out on the market today...

I actually might of made part of that reel., I worked on the International and Senator assembly line for almost 3 years back then...

I'm not interested in moving it, I just wanted to know the value. That is very interesting that you may have worked on this reel, theres some history for you right there. I think I have the assembly # for it
