Some years ago I aquired an Intrepid Prince Regent (black)

The fold mechanism of the handle has evidently broken, as it is Araldited in the user position.

The gears are virtually stripped.

I have never, ever, used an Intrepid - not this one or any other - we used to call them "guzzle" reels - if you wonder why, just wind an Intrepid fixed spool and listen to what it says!

Is the above of any use/value to anyone? I don't want anything for it, but suggest a modest donation to the ACA for half the reel's value would be in order.
