You might get double, what you paid. Not much more. Do you want to sell it in parts, as a part reel? Not all parts sell, and your left with what's left.
:smile:
Well I've seen the drag go for 10$ and the spool for 20$ and bail for 12-15$ so I figure I would turn a profit and keep the left overs to sell or fix up another 700

$35 is a cheap price for a 700
Figure in used, but fully functional shape, no box, around $50 to $75 is a good ballpark price - deduct from there.

I noticed you're missing the bumper that the bail rests on. That's an easy fix and you should take care of it before you sell the reel. The bail arm sitting at that funny angle will hurt the value, guys will think it's more serious a problem then it is.
What bumper? do you have a pic of what the reel should look like?

I've cannibalized reels before, and sold the rest, as is. I'm sure some one will buy the 700 parts. IMO, they're desirable.thumbsup.gif
I just ordered the bumper for $1.25 and in the process of buying two more 700's. This real is so smooth.....hard to believe it's circa 1966- mid 70's!
Any tips on taking care of them or custom upgrades? Can I put 40lb power pro green moss on it?
