Default My finished Abu projects

A green 6500, two spool gearings, an idler bearing, and the level wind bearing.
Rocket side plates
The best thing, it cost less than $70.00 to build.
The blue had the idler bearing, and two spool bearings, and it's smooth.
The last is a 5500 size with, a level wind, idler, and two spool bearing. And this reel is fast, and a super caster.

These reels were all built with parts I had, or parts I ordered to build these.
