This reel has never been used but their are some cosmetic issues because it is new old stock. First, the casting thumbbar has some missing paint and second, the palming thumb bar is slightly cracked(highlighted in red, I did this when I tried to remove it to clean, thought you remove it like the newer Abus but not, this thumb bar has ears that go into the side and you have to push them out to remove). Box, papers, no tool. Box is missing UPC from the bottom, I got it this way. Box also states lifetime warranty but I do not know if Pure Fishing will honor w/o a receipt. Basically, the same reel as an older 5500/5600 C3 since it has the anti-reverse dog instead of IAR. Also the drag washers are leather, I'm not sure if that's good or bad. 6.3:1 gear ratio as well as a clicker. $40shipped. Paypal preferred.
