CHARLTON SS 8500 .8 ” The Rolex of Fly Fishing Reels ” NO RESERVE NEW Picture and Description:
*** NO RESERVE *** CHARLTON Signature Series 8500 .8 2003 - 2004 Model " THE ROLEX OF FLY FISHING REELS " DISCLAIMER: THIS REEL WILL NOT MAKE YOU CATCH MORE FISH, NOR IS IT RESPONSIBLE FOR MAKING YOU A BETTER FISHERMAN ! THIS REEL HAS NEVER FISHED OR BEEN USED Arguably the best Steelhead, Salmon, Permit, Bonefish, etc. fly fishing reel ever made, the Charlton SS 8500 .8 fly reel is in a class of its own. Highly collectible but also very usable, the sealed drag on a Charlton reel is as smooth and consistent as anything you'll ever feel and will stop anything this side of a cruise ship. The gloss black Type III finish is very durable and will take some serious abuse - which is part of the reason why most Charlton reels you will see still look great regardless of how much they have been used. When Jack Charlton designed these reels he basically put all of his considerable knowledge and expertise in design, machining and fly fishing into what he considered the perfect reel. This particular reel is a left-hand. The drag tightens with a counter-clockwise rotation. If you are looking for a right-hand-retrieve reel, Scientific Anglers (the current owner of the Charlton brand) should be able to make the change. You may want to get in touch with them and verify this before purchasing. There is a tiny mark in the finish (about half the size of a pinhead) on the drag dial. You have look very carefully to find the blemish. Other than that this reel is in MINT CONDITION. •Ideal for Steelhead, Salmon, Bonefish, or FOR JUST LOOKING GOOD. •Type III gloss black anodization • Currently set up for left-handed retrieve. •Made in Burlington, Washington 1994 - 2004 •*** THIS AUCTION IS FOR THE REEL & SPOOL ONLY! *** *** IT DOES NOT COME WITH REEL POUCH, MANUAL or BOX *** This is reel is being sold as used equipment that is UNUSED & IN MINT CONDITION, but there is a minor scratch at the top of the drag dial above the "a" in the word "Signature" and can be seen in the 2nd photo.
