Default how many penn 707z reels were made?

I'm asking this because i only ever seen one and it just sold on the bay for 780 bucks are there really that few of them? I reel with my right hand and was dreaming of one but i might as well forget it lol.

I've never seen one in real life, I've seen a few 705's but never a 707.

The one that went off on Ebay, can we be safe in assuming it was new, still in the box ? For that price I'd be shocked if it wasn't.

I've seen em go used, in good operating condition, for around $300+
705's go for a lot less

Hey Paulie...ask Mr. Brown if its a knock off.....cause it left on a UPS truck a week or so ago to its new owner (good to see it found a good home...a fellow s247 member)...damn near killed me to see it go...but i had to, it was a true test of "do i have the stuff or does the stuff have me". the "stuff" will always be here...we wont. I have been seriously putting priorities in order while ive been away...i have the rest of this season to squeeze in as much fishing as possible..because sometime about the end of december there will be an addition to the 4290 household....
