I would consider a trade. Do most of these spinners not have the "saltwater proof" sticker ? I thought it was kind of odd. The reel was purchased here in BC on the West Coast so maybe they added that for this market ?

The early ones all came with that decal on the rotor. They're not really "Saltwater Proof" but they are fairly Saltwater Resistant. They still need to be regularly rinsed and cleaned, and they will show the normal saltwater affects if neglected. The metal bail plate was a special saltwater feature that only came on that version. They are really nice reels for heavy freshwater or light saltwater.

The "6" is probably the least valuable of the 3, 4, 6 & 7, and not at all rare. In the condition yours is in it would probably bring $35-$45 unless it has the original box, pamphlet, extra spool and tool. Double + if you have those extras.

Here's my "TOTALY CORROSION RESISTANT"- 4. It came from the upper midwest. So I guess it was a sales point to claim this. Maybe they all came outta the factory that way?
I've got an Avet SX 6/4 MC w/P-pro on it, that sits in my car as a back-up. I dislike the way the pinion bearing can so easily get crunched by high sunset drag numbers(stated max. drag: 14lbs.). I recently replaced that and another bearing in it.
Think about it. The 6 and 7's seem to be 50 -100$+(good condition) on da bay and not real common. PM if interested.

Ok. Tommy and I were probably typing at the same time. Go with what he's talkin' bout.
