    I found one at a local thrift store, haven't bought it yet. Obviously used but barely a scratch on it. Is it worth $60. I pulled on the drag and it seemed smooth and reactive, but in case it's shot, is it an easy and cheap fix?

    Thanks

    I don't Know The Difference Between The Peerless Model & The GTO but The GTO's Are $69.99 In Cabela's, It's A 320 Too

    Scott the price might be just a touch high for a used 320 but not out of sight. I have tons of Penn reels including a pair of the 320 GTi's. I would be amazed if there was anything wrong with that reel. Check appearance for signs of boat rash, scratches on the reel sides, salt water use, the reel seat, line guide, marks on the screws in the side cover, the big nut on the reel handle and small screw intact. That will tell a lot of the condition and previous care. The screw heads in all cases should be perfect..no evidence of screw driver. I love my Penn's, hardest working reels I've ever owned..they just keep on working.
