I picked up a Daiwa 7650 HRL reel recently while in an antique shop with my wife. Has anyone heard of this reel? It looks sort of like a greenie, only it's more olive color, says it's anondized, and it has a ball bearing drive. I'm hoping I can use it on the surf.
Off the top of my head no idea.
Google didn't help
Got a picture ??
Generally speaking Daiwa was for the most part a low end reel in the 1970's using a lot of stamped steel and pot metal (remember when "Made in Japan" was considered a bad thing?)
This doesn't mean it won't work fine. It does mean you'll have to be very attentive with your maintenance or the reel will quickly sprout the white dust of death that was a common malady on a lot of those older reels.

Re: Anyone heard of a Daiwa 7650 HRL reel?
I had an older Daiwa, a reel that had the same "anodized spool", and two (2) ball bearings. I never did find out the model # of that reel. It was about the size of a 712, and grey. The times I did use it, it was decent for smaller bass and blues.
