Charlton 8500 1.2 Thinn-Line Series Fly Reel


Here is a scarce opportunity to purchase an exceptional Charlton Thinn-Line (TL) fly reel, model 8500 1.2 (serial number TL9095). Left-hand retrieve! This reel was only available for a few years, early in the history of Charlton Reels from 1994-96. This series was ironically cheaper than the more well-known Signature Series with most of the savings made in the matte finish and simplified drag knob. There is one ding on the rim, otherwise the reel looks unused, including no marks on the reel foot.

Shipping Information
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.
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.
