Here you will see samples of collections of most unusual/rare Record/ABU equipment from the 40's through to current time.
Long term ABU mate Uffe Edefuhr discusses some rare Record and ABU reels with our mate Woffe Birckbach over an ale.
Woffe still has his collection, Uffe has relinquished his and now is
the person who has helped me acquire mine over the last decade.
they have a wealth of ABU experience and knowledge!
Tom Taiton, ABU collector and fisho!
Petri Muuttoranta, Lure maker extraordinare from Finland, also with common ABU interests
Tonny and Tina Svendsen Z coloured ABU lures from Sweden
Gary Oswald from South Australia will share here soon.
Les Kilby from Central Coast NSW , another sick ABU collector will feature here soon. He is willing to share his collection and special Japanese tuned Ambassadeurs with us!
John Heil hails from Winsconsin USA and has a fantastic Penn Collection that deserves to be shown as he has tirelessly helped me with my Collection.
I think the most unusual rod/reel combo from ABU that I have ever seen is this Tournament Caster, details of which are provided by friend John Knight in UK.
For me below was the Ultimate Group Collection of rare mint ABU Admiral 4/0, 6/0, 7and a half /0 IGFA reels . I think a 9/0 would complement this trio nicely. It is not supposed to exist but I believe on does. More details of my Garcia Admiral 7.5/0 are here and are still my most valued reels.
Prototype for "D" series Ambassadeurs! "From The Collection Of Lonnie Mills, USA"
Thanks so much Carmilla and Kjell
Extensive, but less well displayed, more used for for fishing reels here.
