This reel just came in, I believe it was only released in Japan. It features a stainless steel spool and seems to be a quality reel. I’ll post some pics of the insides once I'm home. It was bought from a seller in Japan and took nearly 3 months to deliver but on the upside it was purchased for $3 plus shipping. If anyone has any  info please share. Thanks

very curious if these spools would fit original 3-digit Baitrunners (maybe, 300 or 350)

EASY UPGRADE (33% more drag surface):
  • find a compatible modern drag knob w/ internal coil spring
  • get rid of the wavy spring washer
  • replace it w/ another drag washer (polish bottom of drag well)

if you also upgrade all 3 to CF, the improvement should be significant!

Sorry about the out of focus pics my phone was dropped and now camera won’t focus. Upon closer inspection, the quality might not be as high as expected but for $3; im not complaining too much. This reel came paired with a MIGZ no.0, i try to get some pics of that reel next.
