Some nice stuff to move. Reasons to sell is either they are backups or didn't balance their intended setup as I had hoped. Feel free to ask any questions. Prices are in USD via PayPal and cover shipping and fees in the CONUS.
Thanks for looking. (no trades please)
- Modern Hardy Taupo 3 7/8 (my favorite spey reel, but this is a backup) with black Hardy handle installed from Archuleta (60 dollar upgrade) which makes it look much better IMO. Used maybe once if I remember correctly. Fresh backing and Varivas shooting line set for LHW, but easy to swap. Comes with box and pouch and paperwork SOLD
- New, never used, only handled Ari T Hart F4 Deschutes with Original box and pouch. Set for LHW. (Arch can swap if needed) Made in Holland - the most collectible and valuable era of his reels. 3 3/4" Diameter 6 5/8 oz. SOLD
- Used once or twice modern Abel TR 4/5. Gorgeous click / pawl reel with box, papers, pouch, etc... Nice blend of classic and contemporary. SOLD
- Hardly seen Reichner S7.10 Reel and Spare Spool. American made reel (midwest I believe) with cork drawbar style bomber drag. Kind of love child of an old Ross Reel and an Abel. Nice click reeling in - silent outgoing. Comes with extra plate and pawl to swap to RHW, currently set for LHW. 3 inch diameter, but wide for good capacity. Cool proportions overall. Ideal for a 6/7/8 single hander or would be awesome for glass or bamboo or a 2/3/4 trout spey as it has some heft at 7.8 oz. Unique reel. Dreamy score for the right setup. 150 USD for Reel and Spool
- Burkheimer 8115-4 Classic build. One of the most powerful short speys I've ever cast. Bought it for a back up for a coast trip while my other rod was in the shop. Unique rod in the Burkie lineup as it's really much faster than most of their rods. Ideal for big steelhead or salmon no problem. Great for tight quarters 540 - 570 skagit is it's happy spot. This would be a great striped bass beach stick as well. Comes with sock and tube - some wear on cork, but nothing that isn't typical. SOLD
