    Levelwind, Rated at 275 yds 15 mono, Penn HT-100 drag

    This reel has been stripped down and cleaned inside and out. All working parts have been Super-Lubed. The sideplates are maroon with no chips or cracks. The chrome shows some wear, but not much. There are no damaged parts on this reel. Every last piece is made and assembled in the USA. The drag is a little tight due to new drag washers. She is ready to be spooled up and go fishing, or put on a shelf for display. Either way it's an American classic.

    Asking $35. for the reel and $6 for shipping. I prefer PayPal.

    PM me with any questions.

    First person to post "I'll take it", gets it.

    Thanks for lookin,

    Scott

    Scott, thinking about it. If you still have it before too long I may look at getting it. Poisonpits sees it and you problably will have it sold. He is a big Penn fan and is Penn broke.:smile2:

    Scott, those Penns are great reels. I have, and have had them for over 30+ years. The extra pawl "holders" have come in handy too. I have a couple of 209's, a LH 209, a 309, a few #9's. Anyone wants or needs a dependable level wind, these are great. I mostly use mine for drift fishing, but, with some practice, they'll cast pretty good too. Just don't enter a distance casting contest with one:smile2:
    One little bit of advice, if someone say's it's "old, vintage, etc." and it doesn't have a handle similar to the one pictured, IT AIN'T, the newer models have a "rubber/vinyl(?)" handle, and don't have the extra pawl holder on the side off the handle side.

    Strong and loud. This reel may be old, but she's got low mileage! :wink:
