Wtb: A few click/pawl reels

Hi,

As the title states, I'm looking to buy a couple of cheap-ish back-up reels.

First would be a trout reel, click and pawl, for a 3wt rod. Would like to keep it under $75 CAD shipped. Would pay more if it had a 3wt line on it.

Second would be a click and pawl back up reel, akin to a Battenkill in the V (spey) size, or large JW young for my 14' 8wt spey rod. Would like to spend up to $150 CAD for this, but preferably less. Only interested in click and pawl reels, and will be giving Canadian sellers preference, only for shipping (read: duty) reasons.

Aesthetics don't matter much at this price point, but looking for something in good working order. Battenkills, Medalists (yes, I know, not c&p...), JW Young, etc...

Let's see whatcha got!

Ryan

BudCrist, thank you for the offer on the Landex--I've received several offers on these, actually--but the anti-reverse is a deal breaker for me, however sexy those reels are.

Lumberyard...while yes, a great deal, I am in no position to fork out that kind of $ for a small trout reel, let alone a back up! My wife still reminds me of my $800 Bougle spey reel I bought a few years back

Everyone else, I'm still pondering the many offers I've received--thank you, and feel free to keep them coming! I'm most interested in the spey sized reel(s) for now.

Ryan

Theyre not for everyone. The Pridex is a nice wide spool reel in excellent condition. I also have a couple nice 4 inch Beaudex reels, but nothing with a wide spool.

I also have a nice lightly used 1498 Medalist. Not sexy, but they have accounted for a lot of big fish in their day.
