Daiwa 1000C Vintage Ultra lite reel

Doing some research the other day into vintage ultra lite spinning reels and found a all metal body Daiwa 1000C that fit the bill.  Wanted to replace a Shakespeare 025 from my childhood and just could not justify the $100.00 they are going for on eBay.  I happened on a DAM Quick 110 that was nice but a little heavy and not as smooth as the 025.  Well the Daiwa came in the mail today in time for Fathers Day!  $44.00 delivered.

It is tiny and mighty!  Three ball bearings, multiple disc drag system that has a metal body and spool!  Perfect little 6lb test spinning reel.  This will be mounted on the trusty Fenwick pack backing rod from 1982.  Fresh water fish beware!
