    Thats got to be one of the best bagains i've seen for a long time,i've owned one of these rods for over 35 yrs,recently rebuilt it myself(to my standard) otherwise i would snatch your hand off,these rods were top dog make no mistake,abu have recently re introduced an updated version by demand from anglers,ideal rock,beach, pier rod how many rods can claim to do that for the price of a couple of spools of line?£20 ? dip your bread in lads and buy yourself a johnny rambo rod YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT.....hope you sell it mate good luck!!

    Re: abu atlantic. 484 Zoom

    Hya lads I bought one of those rods when I came back from Australia in 1978 together with an Abu 9000c for about 80quid out of our lasses club.Top rod and reel of its day I was told at the time,still in original bag same metal rings with screw connection only thing missingis the rubber plug that went in open end in the middle.Only work done on it in all these years was about fifteen years ago I give the cork butt a couple of coats of polyurethane (rightly or wrongly).
    still in perfect condition today and still in use today.Sadly the reel got knacked a few years ago,infact I was on Whitby west pier a couple of weeks back and blanked yet again,but that's another story.Pity I arnt as good at catching fish as my rod has stood the test of time.

    As you can tell I have a soft spot for my first rod I bought.


    cheers lads.

    Terry carrol (mr zipplex ) used the tips of these rods in the early 70s,i think he coupled them to conoflex bottoms,he really could lob a lead,i nearly went for the same idea,just glad now i didn't would have been an act of vandalism :yes:
