ABU 3000

Another highly collectable baitcaster was recently added to my ABU line-up:- the distinctive ABU 3000.
Very retro 'sixtys styling, interesting internals, a genuine milestone in its day.
This example left the Svangsta urfabriken in July 1965, and remains in pretty good shape for its age of almost half a century!
It has even managed to retain the correctly-marked plastic line-spacer on the spool.

Hope you enjoy the pics.

Now to track down a tidy little 2500 to scratch that itch....! Image

Nice pick-up Tony.
Have you managed a trip to the museum yet? My wife and I took a look yesterday, very impressive.
Hope your wife is better, like to catch-up sometime.
Regards, Tony.
