The wife and I are avid rummage sale hounds, she has an app on her phone she can search all local sales for "fishing" stuff. We found some incredible reels at incredible prices all at one sale. Also a sweet Fenwick FF756.

The prices of these reels are astronomical right now on the bay. Some big site like Alan Tani or his Dr friend's site must have gave these reels a good report.



I am about to go down the rabbit hole on BFS Fishing and This little ABU 1500C is going to get totally pimped out with ultralight add ons. Gonna have to find a nice Japanese rod to match it as well as a Shimano Alderbaran. I think I can find a Glass rod.

Quite a haul! Congratulations. That Abu 1500 is pretty desirable.

Careful, BFS is a deep rabbit hole.

The book on these reels is Small Ambassadeurs: The Legendary Light-Line Fishing Reels by: Espen Sjaastad, Karl-Eric Svensson.

Check the Ambassadeurs for damage to the brake rim before you spend big $$$ on them.

I'm foreseeing some trick aftermarket parts on both the Cardinals and little Amabassador.
Keep us posted on the reels and the rods you match with them.

I just sold two Zebco Cardinal 4 (salt) and was really surprised how much people are willing to pay.

But the Cardinal 3 (s) you have there are selling for absolutely crazy amounts!
