Default My Greenie is on it's way back from Hell

Chuck Hell, the Reel Restorer, that is

This 706 Greenie is very special to me. It belonged to Jeff Morris, a close friend who passed this winter, and was his pride and joy. It had been drilled but the holes were a bit uneven so Steve (Asbury Guy) did some of his machining magic and reshaped em to what you see here. Chuck painted it up (these are his pictures) and it is on its way back to me now.
I think Jeff would be happy.

I'll have to, it wouldn't be right to let it rot away hanging on a wall.

I had the old washers replaced with Ht100's

It's not a Daiwa but it gets the job done

almost everything is... It is a nice reel. I have some of my grandfathers old baitcasters but have never seen one like that before.

Waterdog does some nice work. I had him overhaul a few 704s and 710's for me last year.

Couldnt think of a better prize winner.


BTW thanks for the ton of plugs and unquantifiable contributions here. I had them out the other day for a swim.
No fish around that day. I kinda knew they werent there but I needed to get out.
