This is a cast reel made in Argentina. The casettes are plastic and screw into the spool. I have a reel and 2 extra casettes for sale. Two of the casettes have line on them. One is loaded with a Cortland 4wt intermediate sink (turquoise color, not clear), and the other has a Cortland 4wt sink tip. The lines are pretty old, but haven't seen a lot of use. Asking $60 plus actual shipping cost.
