Record/ABU Reel Models
It is impossible for me to
list and detail definitively all models ever released,
Nor would it be warranted or be beneficial to both the casual user and/or specialized serious collector.
Many are slight variations of
each other, due to colour, gear ratios, line capacity etc.
One can realize, in the Service Guides,

I personally try not to
labour on only the rarest, most collectable reels, rather I prefer to highlight

After great deliberation,
this section will deal with selected ABU built reels based on the following.
Choice of reels will be

acknowledgements are made to the ever available help from many, including Len
Borgstrom, Uffe Edefur, Goran Enocson, the helpful team at Svangsta, including
Jan Sjoblom and Patrik Svensson, Ben Wright, Marco Malavasi, and numerous others
still to be added.
There will be an
opportunity here for fans to put
forward their own pages which would be acknowledged (please use Verdana font
