New Reel

Recently, I got a new reel. It is a NIB (new in box, dead stock) ABU Ambassadeur Record reel, which was sold only for the Japan market in 1985 (made in 1984).

The specification is almost the same as that of 4600C, but the body is black with so-called 'palming body'. The rims are decorated with beautiful decals. Its name was after the famous ABU reel, Record.
