This is a MINT - NEWELL 533 5-5 with:
- RED BARS & BASE
- OPEN BEARINGS in STAINLESS BEARING CUPS
- NEW ALUMINUM 400/500 NEWELL LARGE KNOB HANDLE
- ALL TRADITIONAL SCREW PARTS
Condition is 9 cosmetically and 9+ mechanically on this very lightly used reel.
There is ZERO bearing noise, spool spins extremely well, no rubbing and the handle turns very easily. NO SHOTGUN DRAG either, sometimes common on 500 series reels.
- Clamp & Screws
- Original box with Newell S500 schematic
Also comes with:
- 2 complete sets of 533 Bars & Bases with 18 inner and outer frame posts (that's what I was given so you have two extra)
- 1 400/500 Series Newell aluminum handle that someone tried to remove the knob from
Price is set at 420 dollars which includes shipping by US Priority mail and 400 dollars insurance place on the package.
I did see where the threaded 533 Red Bars and Base alone go for 100 dollars a piece on flea bay.
This reel is a winner, as good as you can ask and ready to be fished....
