Record casting REELS
I have over 30 different Record casting reel models in my collection, but my favourite is the early Record 2000 "Amber" model complete with blue velvet lined wood blue box and all accessories. It is also very special to me, due to the circumstances surrounding how I acquired it. Other very special models are the purple Record 1560 along with the Record 300 Pimple/Ice-fishing reel. They will be added in time.
