Following my series of classic fly reel pictures i like. After the famous ABU Delta, here is another great ABU fly fishing reel:
The ABU Record Standard
The Record Standard was manufactured by ABU under the brand of ABU and Pebco (Model 5). They were similiar in design and specifications and were build in Sweden from 1942 to 1965. They had a capacity of 100 yards of backing under the flyline.
|ABU Record Standard Front||ABU Record Standard Back|
|ABU Record Standard Side|
On the backside it is labeled with "RECORD Standard", "MADE IN SWEDEN" and "A.B. URFABRIKEN SVÃ„NSTA", that means something like "A.B. Clock Manufacturer Sweden".
It is not in mint condition, but hey it is pretty old.
