Danielsson reel L5W 8-12

I am selling from my collection new, unused Danielsson L5W 8-12 reel.
Included is neoprene pouch, warranty/instruction booklet, allen ranch and box.

The reel is very similar to discontinued LW 8-12, has identical diameter and line capacity, but it 1 oz heavier and has a drag which range ( min. to max) can be tune at 5 levels. At factory set-up the max. drag resistance is much stronger then in discontinued model.

Diameter: 4.25", spool width: 1.25", weight: 8.2 oz,
Line capacity: 8/9 Delta Long ( 640 [email protected]') with integrated running line plus 170 yards of #30 lb Dacron.


Price $ 350 includes shipping to US and Canada.

Danielsson are selling this direct from their factory in Sweden at the moment for $404 which is a discounted price just google Danielsson Innovation AB. I have this model myself and it is a great reel.

Indeed, this is probably the most popular model for DH rods and with stronger drag can battle easily large salt water species and reel, 100% sealed drag, is incredibly reliable like older model LW 8-12

They shipping charges for, Sweden are also very reasonable and the shipping, at least to US is tariff fee, as package ( below $ 2000 in value) goes very smoothly via Postal Service custom office !!!
Never paid tariff since Swedish Postal Service started to work with USPS in 2009.

You mentioned this reel can handle 170yds of 30 lb Dacron ? In your opinion( or anyone else) would the drag set to the #2 be OK for a HD rod for Salmon in the 20 to 30 lb class ?

IMHO the answer to that question is no, I have mine set to 4 and adjust accordingly.

Level 4 is the original factory set-up. I have changed mine to 3 and it can comfortable handle 30+ King Salmon w. At max. it is only about 15-20% lighter then 4.

Level 2 is closer to an older LW 8-12.
