Help with valuation please. ABU Record Sport 2100 complete with ultralight magnesium tournament spool

Post by FishingIsLife »

I would appreciate your ideas on value, thank you.

ABU Record Sport 2100 complete with ultralight magnesium tournament spool.

Made in Sweden, Svangsta.

Record Sport 2100 leather case
Record oil for spinning reels
Record grease for spinning reels
Spare part container for spinning reels
Spare parts, lots, for Record Sport 2100
Piece of fabric with unreadable letters

The leather case has “2100D” written on one of the sides. The D might stand for “Direct Drive”. The spool has some spots where the red paint is gone.
There is a small amount of corrosion on the top side of the reel foot.

Functionality is excellent.




Kind Regards,

Stefan

Beautiful, Stefan! That reel without most of the extras you have with your has sold at Langs for $300 plus/minus 50, which includes their 21% vig. I’m sure that there is a line forming now, waiting to take that one off your hands!

i used those for many years. it is a 18gm level line distance reel for i.c.f. (int national casting federation. #8 level line (mono) metal plug. ranges of 300/325, with a well tuned 1. the small fiber washers make all the difference in peformance.

dont know how it came to be but it was all we had for many years. my 1st 1 was given to me by Jon "Buddy" Tarantino in 1961 to compete in the only world tournament a us team. ever took an jr. (me) to the int comp.

if u want the back ground and more info, mail me ur phone and i will call u.
not much on email. arthritis and shrapnel make it suck
