Old(er) shimano reel I found in my dad's garage

Recommended Posts

Found a shimano b-100a reel in my dad's garage this weekend. I was just looking for some info on google about it but couldn't find much.

 

Does anyone have any info on this reel? I'd like to know some of the specs and stuff just out of curiousity.

All I have on it is a one bearing, 5:1, line capacity of around 125 yards of 12 # test. Sometimes favored as a flipping reel.

There are bushing that may be replaced with bearings but some of the old bushing reels casted surprisingly well.

Well sweet! That's all I needed to know, can't believe it's only got one bearing but then again the spool is plastic....:unsure:

Back in those days most reels only had one spool supporting bearing. The spool is no plastic but graphite, there´s nothing wrong with it being graphite, besides, you couldn´t ask for better stuff on a 25 dollars reel.
