Shakespeare Neptune Baitcaster reel

17 08 2009

Couldn’t resist bidding on a very low priced Shakespeare Neptune at the weekend. At the time of bidding, it was priced at £10, with less than an hour to go – so I stuck on a max bid of £16.02 (£0.01 bids are common, so thought the extra penny would help out bid anyone doing that). The final price was £16 and £3.99 p+p. The description says the reel is in good working order, and also comes with a box.

My reason for the interest in the Shakespeare, which is a departure from the usual Abu’s, is that I remember it being released, I’d say around 1998 (don’t quote me on that!), as a very low cost casting multiplier – I think they RRP’d at £39.99. Despite this, they very closely resembled Abu multipliers, and shared the 5.3:1 retrieve. The original box is always a welcome extra. So I thought I’d take a punt on it, and won! Borrowed the picture from Ebay again, will stick a new one up when I get the reel.
