Spey Reels for sale: Used but in great condition

I have four Spey reels for sale (wife's orders). All reels are used but in very good condition, a tiny scratch here or there, but hardly noticeable. Warranty cards are not included. You can call the fly shop and leave a credit card, or pay via Paypal. No foreign orders. Telephone number is (406) 666-2375 (Bighorn Trout Shop; www.bighorntroutshop.com Ask for Hale, but others can help you. Email: [email protected]

1. Ross Momentum #7, black. This is the original Momentum model, not the newer Momentum LT. The original model had less porting and is a little heavier, but this can help balance out larger Spey rods. A few tiny scratches on this reel (hard to see), but otherwise in great shape. $300.00 shipping included.

2. Tibor Riptide reel in satin gold color. This is the standard model, not the Quickchange. A few small scratches but in great shape. Please note that the nameplate can be removed and replaced with your own by Tibor. $325.00 shipping included.

3. Galvan T-10 Torque reel in bronze color. Great condition. Please notice that this doesn't come with the original reel case, but I've substituted one by Simms. $260.00 shipping included.

4. Hardy Zane #2 Reel. Can't find any scratches on this reel. $250.00 shipping included.

Just curious as I've seen this on a number of classified ads but why no foreign orders?

I too found that a bit interesting; credit cards/paypal (well, maybe not them on a 'foreign order' work just fine).

To be honest Fred I find it a bit offputting, about a month ago I offered to buy a DH from another forum member but he said he did not want to post it outside of the US, even though I would obviously be paying postage............he is still trying to sell the rod! His loss I suppose.

Not good news.

I've (over many years) sent many packages (just about anything you can think of) to the UK and Ireland via the US Postal Service, UPS and FedEx ... all with return receipt requested as that gave 'both of us' the ability to track a package. Ya, Ya cost another couple of bucks, but worth the few $$.

In the reverse, I've ordered up from several UK/Ireland based vendors 'stuff' that just isn't (or at least I couldn't find) a US source for same.

Either way, NOT A HITCH. Zero, Nada, Nothing went wrong. Longest 'trans-shipment from me to your side of the Pond was 8 days to hit your fair shores. Why eight? I forgot we had a three day National Holiday coming up.

Usual from my hand to the 'Greater UK' was 4 or 5 days max; it may take a few more days for actual delivery, but from shore to shore it was damned near 'over-night' via the tracking number(s).

But back on point: "No foreign orders." No clue what the fellow is/was thinking. Postage is a bit more, but that could easily be added to the 'price.'

Fred

Edit: Guess the fellow loves the rod too much to sell same? :>)

The fellow was thinking he didn't want to ship his reels outside of the US which is his choice since he owns the reels. I certainly see no big deal in this. He has the right to only ship his reels where ever he wants same as a potential buyer has the right not to deal with him.

How you get the line out and fishing is personal preference so as long as it works and is easy no one should care but the caster. MSB

Well Fred I was going to mention it myself but someone got there before me.....apart from our six counties up north, Ireland is no longer, thanks to people like my grandfather and his father, under occupation by the UK.........but no harm done!

Poppy I was the one who asked the original question, I agree its his choice, I was just curious as I have seen similar statements on quiet a number classified ads and was wondering if it had something to do with postage.


While I am posting on this thread I'd like to apologise to the original poster for distracting potential buyers with my question.

Howdy Klink,

I know the OP quite well and feel he just didn't want the bother of shipping overseas. I don't think there is any other motives.

My point to Fred's quote was and is the reels belong to the OP and if he wants to only sell to people in Texas or guys with red hair or whatever it is his call.

Hi Poppy, after all this sidetracking, I hope the OP gets to sell his reels!
