Charlton 8450C Reel with 3/4, 5/6, and 7/8 Spools


A very nice Charlton 8450C fly reel with all three spools (3/4, 5/6, and 7/8). Near mint condition with two faint mounting marks on the foot, one tiny nick on the frame near the crossbar, and one tiny nick on the edge of the 7/8 spool. Superb otherwise, and the reel and spools appear to have spent most of their time in the case. Set up for LHW but can be easily reversed to RHW. A very nice package here and with all three spools you can easily tailor the reel to your needs and conditions. The exclusive configurable system accommodates three different quick-change spools: 3/4, 5/6, and 7/8 weight. The retrieve rate increases as you mount spools engineered for smaller line weights, resulting in a large arbor, quick-retrieve reel. When mounted with the smaller spools it becomes a lightweight, quick-retrieve, freshwater reel. Carbon fiber disk drag system built for serious stopping power. Type III anodizing for maximum saltwater protection. Oversized 5/8" smooth-riding aerospace bearings. Complete enclosure of all mechanical components to protect against contamination from the elements. The snap-reverse system instantly reverses to left- or right-hand retrieve with the push of a button on the inside of the frame. The reel and spools come in a large round case that looks very Charlton-esque with the blue Cordura though I haven't seen this style before. A great do-it-all package that will last you a lifetime.

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.
Other Terms
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.
