So I have a question...

I recently was given a NIB Abu Garcia Ambassadeur XLT Plus. The reel is black and has the old Abu logo on the side. It has a levelwind that separates when the button is depressed and then reconnects on the retrieve. It looks like an earlier version of my dad's 521 XLT reel. What could this reel be worth? Would anyone still be interested in this reel? It seems like it was top quality back in the 80s or so. Thanks for any help...

I remember that reel...It was my first baitcaster. I believe it had (1) bearing and a quck release spool. I know that because I hit the lever and the spool fell into the water. Lucky I tie the line to the spool with a cinch knot. After pulling all the line off the spool...I got it back. LOL It's not worth much. Ebay has 6-7 of them selling for around $20. Good luck. Give it to a kid to practice with. If you can master casting with an XLT...you can cast anything.
