A rare Bill Archuletta fly reel, set up for LHW. 5" diameter with a 1 1/4" spool width. Black anodized throughout with the sole exception being a bright spindle cap holding the spool on. Heavily ported throughout, including the spool drum, with the sole exception being the rear faceplate. Good used condition with some modest wear marks on the frame and a little residue on the inside of the spool from old backing. Mechanically perfect and ready to go, with a nice click on the inbound while silent on the outbound. Dual handles on the spool. "Archuletta" is done in a flowing white script on the backplate as well as the number "05". I believe Bill does almost all of his reels on a custom basis so this was likely a custom order from one of his customers. No bag.
We ship at cost to the buyer and in the majority of cases do so via UPS with full insurance and signature. There are cheaper options but our experience has been that you get what you pay for and that it's not worth taking risks when shipping what are often one-of-a-kind items. Your shipping estimate will be calculated at checkout and if you have any questions please contact us. Please note the buyers are responsible for any applicable import duties or fees that may levied. Due to the importance of packing items carefully please allow up to two weeks for arrival (depending on how busy we are) though we certainly do our best to get items to you as expeditiously as possible.
Unless otherwise noted, all items come with a 3-day inspection period during which they can be returned to us for a full refund (provided that they are in the same condition in which they left our shop). Return shipping is the responsibility of the buyer. If an item is returned, we will issue a refund within 10 days upon receipt. Refunds will be either administered by providing a check or, when possible, by canceling a credit card purchase.
