Default Let me know about your 300

Id be interested in teh 300 if its running smoothly?
Lots of people want ABUs

300s & 400s the automatic version were used from the late 50s to 80s.
Then the BIG challenge came from Japan!
The French did not respond well!

I like the 300s because they have a big spool this is ideal for float fishing with lines from 3 to 6lbs!
Selected as In-Fishermans Best alround angler & teacher in USA, and the 25th Anniversary Legends in Mar 01.

Inducted to the Hall of Fame in Hayward, WI as a Legendary Angler 2005
