I just got my second 304 on ebay, a lady's father had passed away and she had it for auction. He took very good care of the reel and I assured her I would as well. I do not like buying keepsakes like this without giving the seller the option to buy back if they ever regret selling it. I cleaned and lubed it and it was as smooth or smoother than my 1st 304.I mounted it on a new EC glass rod (made in china)I took the sticker off at least, they no longer have metal reel seats, but still have that classic look for the 304.I sprayed the cork with polyurethane and am about to try to catch something with it after it dries.

I sent my 304 to Bryan a couple years ago, but i use those EC rods on my 408's. Great match for 20 bucks.

Theres a little local shop near me in Va that has them, and I got a couple from Blain as well. Bass Pro also has some comparable yellow glas rods finished nicely in the same price range.

At Fred's suggestion, I bought a bunch at a local Walmart for my DQs last year.
