I have a vintage, machined aluminum, Orvis CFO 123 Disc reel with a zippered, leather, reel case for sale. This reel is one of the old, English-made disc drag reels with the dark green finish and the bright reel foot. The reel measures 2 7/8 inches in diameter and is designed to hold a 1-4 weight line. The reel is in good cosmetic condition with some wear visible on the edges but no scratches or dents. Will sell for $165 shipped.[img]

I do have several pictures available but this forum is not user friendly to pictures. Thus, if you will PM me with you e-mail address, I will be happy to send them to you.

I am afraid that I don't know exactly how old this reel is but it seems like I have had it fifteen years or so. As for the original cost, I am afraid that I don't recall that either. However, these reels have been out of production for quite some time so people are starting to collect them and thus the price is rising accordingly.

most CFO collectors go for the click and pawl models that predate your Disk Break model....

This reel has now been traded for a March Brown Hidden Waters rod.
