When it comes to Mordexes.....

Post by Stathamender » Mon Dec 08, 2014 7:59 am

....it seems that hope springs eternal in matters of pricing but reading skills are a bit iffy. See item 111542065836 on ebay.

I'd be inclined to agree with you.......except that is the only Mordex box I have ever, ever seen!


That alone makes it rarer than a box of rare things and takes it into 'collector territory' Add on the fact that it almost Christmas and the seller might just pull it off........


It's also a decent early model...later ones had plastic ratchet bits that snapped........

It be incline to agree with you, and so does the seller, hence the opening price. Never seen a boxed one either...

Listed as "The Merlin" and Aerial style but is in fact "The Mentor" :Thumb:





Update : Listing now changed to Mentor and price reduced.

Oh, yeah...I'd missed that...had just got out of bed. ... perhaps he searched online and found a Merlin image...the backs are the same bar the name I think.

Thank you, i do it with all the bad looking reels. like to refurbish and restore reels. not the rare one's or expensive reels with good patina, only the reels that no one want to have.
Polish, paint, and make some new decals and the reel does look like new.
