Cool! The no drag, no clutch, Sea Hawk. Looks so much better than the plain black. The "Sea series" would be a good group to collect.

Leave the gun.  Take the cannolis.

Daron, Thanks for posting this up for me. 
I acquired this from a long time collector's son who sold it to fund a new sailboat.  NO, I didn't pay for the whole boat. Wink
Just wanted you guys to see what's out there.  I was shocked to see blue but it makes sense because I have the salesman's sample color chips (from the Ray Hodges collection) and wouldn't ya know,  the 77 has an exact match to one of the chips.  I will take the photo with Big Red the color chips, and Baby Blue together then send it to you (Sal) to post it up here if you would please.
Neat stuff out there, crew.
I don't like to seem like I'm tooting my horn (still not tooting-just showing) around here on my finds, but this one is special. Anyone else ever seen a blue Penn reel?  If so, I would love to see it.
Have nice weekend.
Dom

That is one unique reel.  Thank you for sharing.  I'm glad you found the right forum to show that reel off.

You didnít pay for the whole boat only because he didnít know you would have.  Wink. Amazing find.
