Charlton 8550C Fly Reel with Offshore Spool


A nice Charlton 8550C fly reel with the scarce Offshore spool. Right hand retrieve. The spool is in near mint condition and the frame is in good used condition with one area near the crossbar with some light rim rash. 4 1/2" diameter with a 1.2" spool width and weighing 13.2 ounces. The offshore spool has fins machined into the rear to help dissipate heat more rapidly from long runs. The capacity is for a WF12F and 470 yards of 30# or significantly more GSP. Deep black Type III anodized finish with matte reliefs and fully machined from high-grade aluminum and steel. This is one of Jack's most well-known and highly regarded models, given its quality, durability, and configurability. The sealed carbon fiber disk drag is self-adjusting and has over 9-square inches of surface area and the large arbor design gives the angler over one foot of line retrieve per revolution. Comes with its original green cordura pouch and the original instruction and warranty cards inside.

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.
