Anyone know the specs on this reel?

Recommended Posts

I have one like it that I fished out of the bottom of a lake.

Ive disassembled,cleaned,lubed and reassembled it and it works great.

Anyone know the gear ratio on one of these. Any other info is appreciated.

I can't remember the specs on that reel.  All you'll find on Abu's site is a schematic.

Probably 5.something to 1.  Around 24" per turn.  that's what most of those reels of that era were.

I had one like that only it was black. It had 2 bearings, 5.? to 1 gear ratio, magnetic braking, no instant anti reverse, graphite frame. Not sure about the weight but I'm pretty sure it was under 8oz. The one I had cost $35 new when I bought it in '94 or '95.
