Charlton 8550C Fly Reel with Extra Spool


An excellent Charlton 8550C fly reel with two tarpon spools. Set up for LHW. The reel and both spools are in near mint condition with just a faint touch of rubbing in a spot or two, and free of any scratches or other defects. I doubt this reel was fished much at all, or if so, only a time or two and very well taken care of. Both spools are loaded with line and backing, one appearing to be a floating line, the other sinking. 4 1/2" diameter with a 1 3/16" spool width. The capacity for this model is listed as WF 10 and 400 yards of 30 lb backing. The sealed carbon fiber disk drag is self-adjusting and has over 9-square inches of surface area. Excellent all-black type-III hard anodizing except for the centre medallion and the counterweight which are done in chrome. The reel and spare spool are packed in the original padded green pouch. A highly sought-after Charlton model here, it doesn't get much better than this for chasing large saltwater species and with a spare spool you could quickly swap floating lines for sinking and vice versa.

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.
