Default Abu 6500 c3ct, old school

I needed a casting reel. I've had Blue Yonder's, and they're fine. I've had the green ct's with the mags. I didn't like 'em. I've built my own Abu's, but they're the newer style. And I have a ton of them.
So, I was at a stuck point. What was I gonna do? I was thinking other than Abu, and I didn't want to go that route. So, a couple of weeks ago, I was talking with my friend from Florida, who is the Abu old school aficionado, Jerry Foran.
I told him what I wanted, and Jerry knew exactly what I needed.
The end result is a 6500 c3ct with Abec 5 bearings, in the side plates! Not in the spool. And that is what i wanted. Old school, at it's finest.
When I get the time I'm gonna open it up, but that's not for today.
John, Surfslinger did a review on these reels awhile back. And he had all good news about these 6500 c3ct's
Some other goodies are the MK II frame, Japan power handle and a drive shaft bearing.
It sure is pretty!
