WTB: Affordable Pflueger Medalist

I am looking for one of the larger sized Medalists. It does not have to be vintage, it does not have to be pristine, it can be either the 1400 or 1500 series. It does need to be functional, and hold about 100 yards of #20 with a Rio Skagit Short (integrated) slapped on it. PM me if you have something you can part with for a fairly cheap price.

Don't mean this to sound like a really dumb question .. but ...

Considering these reels are 'Cheap as chips' NIB, why not just get a new one?

I take your point on eBay, count me in on that one. But contact Plug direct; you'd be surprised, as often as not, they'll sell direct (or direct you to someone who has them in stock) for 'where the heck can I get one of these' type of questions. Their web site doesn't list either of those reels, but that doesn't mean they don't have them in stock.

Remember being on a 'search' for a specific Cortland product (on line) and No Joy, like Zero Joy. Contacted their customer service and had the 'what-ever' in the mail to me the next day. Nothing ventured, nothing gained? As an aside, I understand why you'd want either of those reels; as close to bullet proof as you can get. Used them on my Spey rods for years; only one 'failure' ... but a King Salmon on the business end of my fly line at the time.
