RDRR  "Reel Rescue"
 
Many of the reels you see here were bought/rescued either from eBay or friends. Most of them probably had a hard life fishing while the rest may have just been taken out a time or two, but not heavily fished. Many came with boxes, manuals and accessories. These Reel Rescue reels are getting ready for their transformation into a restoration. Although I have no problems finding new internal parts, cosmetic sideplates, Mag dials etc., are getting very hard to find. I will improvise when I cannot find replacement parts such as refinishing magnetic control dials and repainting lettering on sideplates etc. Not perfect but far better than when they first arrived. Please, take a look around, most reels are for sale (just trying to figure out the "how to sell part"). Some are new while others may be used. I could just as easily put them an auction website but I am trying something new with this site. Many more pictures to come. Most of the reels seen here are just about finished but may need a sideplate or frame upgrade to look its' best. You already know how the inside will look so why not the outside too! Link to other Bantam sites:  Please email me at rdrr@timelessshimano.net  or vri625@shaw.ca if you have a reel that you are interested in, inquire about or would like to purchase. I have many and would love to hear from you. Please remember that I would rather sell from here and not sell on an auction site if possible. Pictures of reels that you may like can be sent via email. I will try to post more reels for sale but indeed, it is a substantial amount.

New sideplate looks awkward on shiny black reel. To match the rest of the reel, old sideplate can be polished for a nice match "_" or leave as is!
