This is a unused Johnson 40A Sidewinder Reel in the box with instructions and factory brown paper along with box inserts. I doubt you could find a nicer combo. It was never put on a fishing rod and aside from only the faintest scratches under close examination it is perfect and slick looking. I am grading it 99+% new cosmetically and 90% mechanically. Everything seems to work as it should but it has a slight catch when rotating. When I received it the screw was off and the rotor was loose inside. I'm not sure if I didn't put it back together perfectly or not but I suspect these were just made less than perfect. This is a beautiful reel made to have the same sort of look as the earlier boat motors I believe.
