Shimano Bantam 100 EX For Sale
|Current Bid: $ 153.50|
Up for auction is a really nice vintage Shimano Bantam 100EX . Comes with box and vial of extra parts. This reel is in very good cosmetic condition and very good mechanical condition. Very good looking reel, my camera really doesn't do it justice, less than normal tiny scratches, has been taken care of like it hasn't been laid down against anything.This is as nice a used 100 EX I think you could find. Mechanically the handle spins very freely, had about 40 yards of old line on it and I casted a 1/2 ounce weight probably 30 yards so it cast very well. Level wind works well , spool release works well, anti reverse works well., no issues, doesn't seem to have been used much. A really nice vintage reel, this model struggled with the lure control button coming off and this one was glued on, but was done well and doesn't affect the performance of the reel at all.Any questions just ask. No reserve, fair shipping cost.On May-23-12 at 20:39:59 PDT, seller added the following information:
The lure control button may actually work on this reel, it is glued in place with a smooth thick application, but it's hard to say if it's on or off, in casting there was no backlash but then again I'm an expert caster, unfortunately not an expert fisherman!
