WTS Two Abu Garcia 7000Ci3 Reels - Excellent Condition. Except for the Rat Tooth Marks

4 posts in this topic

I have two Abu Garcia 7000ic3 reels that I want to sell to fund another project. While these reels were purchased many years ago, they are in excellent shape, one of them never used. Bought originally for fluke and porgy fishing in the LI Sound, one was taken on the boat maybe twice and the other never saw the water. Any wear marks are more likely from handling over the years than while fishing. 

 

The reels have been in climate-control storage for a decade with the star drags backed all the way out. They are fully functional with the level wind doing what it is supposed to and the drag smooth as new. No rust, no green tarnish, no disfunction. The grease you see inside is from the factory and has not hardened nor melted. 

 

I am offering these reels as follows:

 

Reel #1 (never used) $100 plus $10 postage

Reel #2 (lightly used) $90 plus $10 postage

Both reels $180 plus $15 postage

 

PayPal or USPS money order

 

The first reel shown is the one that was never used. I will post photos of the second reel as a comment.

This is the second reel which was fished a couple of times, rinsed, dried and put in storage. 

 

There is one defect on this reel and it is a story. Apparently, while this was in storage, one of the resident Public Storage rats decided it needed to gnaw on plastic to keep its teeth in shape. Yup, the handle was its target and while it does not impact function, there are the unmistakable teeth marks. 

 

As a reminder, Reel #2 alone is $90 plus $10 postage. Both reels $180 plus $15 postage
