I am selling one of my fine Spey/Salmon reels.

DINGLEY 4 inch

D 1...on foot and inside.

Exceptionally nice reel.
Plenty of lead remains.

Comes with desirable Line Guard---bronze.
Photos show some grooves from the old dirty silk lines used back when.

Single check and I have "tightened" the spring as it is a fine typical brake for these reels (If you know how to keep a fish in the pool....)

The reel foot is original having been machined by Arch to fit any modern reel seat.

Greg,
Do you know the weight of the reel?

I just weighed it and a few others.
They are all between 12.5 oz and 13.25 oz ---with out a line.

I have found them to balance very well with a downlocking reel seat on rods from 13' 3" to 15 ft.

Thanks, Greg. I'd pick it up in a heartbeat but need a reel that's 15-16 oz at minimum to balance a 10-year 15-ft Spey.

Interesting
This reel was used last Fall on a Loomis IMX 15' 8 wt.
Used mainly with a Winter Authority with 12' of CC 200.
Balance was right on.

The 15-footer is a little more than 10.7 oz in weight, & when measured for reel weight using the time-honored balance method, it needs more than 18 oz to go horizontal. I've got a gorgeous Tibor Riptide, but that doesn't begin to balance the rod.

That Dingley has destroyed my focus!! I must have looked at those pictures a dozen times today.

I hope someone snapped this gem up soon, or else I'm going to get myself in big trouble with my wife!

I am not doubting you, Pat
I am simply reporting that when I had this spooled with a WA and 200 CC tip I never noticed any tippiness in the set-up on a 15 8/9 Loomis....now never weighed the Rod---just fished.
It might have gone 14 oz with those lines.

I have sold Danielssons LW 's 8-12's as they would not balance even a Burk 7133.
So I understand your concern.
Some newer reels are just "light"

NB Bob: Buy it. The price is good & the reel is as well made as they come. And it's quite the looker!
