Dr. , do you recall who owned FinNor back then? ...A bit off topic but I was wondering how we might find some artifact literature on these.

Yes, it was the USSC / Olympic /Mamiya era, a few years before Raiford Trask. (There is one guy who connects the dots between those companies as well as Abu and Ryobi. That guy is still around afaik, but i have not met him yet)

I remember tipping off a Pure Fishing bigwig I had the feeling that Fin-Nor would be available soon*, in the hopes that it might come into their ownership, but Bradley bought it not too long thereafter, like 2005 or 2006 or so.

.

*just a hunch, thats all. You could sorta tell it was swirling 'round the drain for a long time

This generation of reels still appear to be of good design and high quality to me though regardless of ownership or place of manufacture... IMHO.

Maybe around $150.  I have seen asking prices as much as $250, but most sell in the $125-$175 range.
