Farlex Platewind Fly Reel 1-1 DD 3 3/4"


A nice Farlex Platewind direct drive fly reel, 3 3/4" diameter and set up for RHW (though the bias is fairly neutral). Raised pillar design. Serial #082. There are two tiny mounting marks on the the foot ends but I can find no sign that the reel has been fished (maybe it happened for potential rod matching purposes?). Silver anodized throughout. The reel weighs 10 ounces on my scale. Gear and pawl drag system with a nice loud click. Ebonite handle that's slightly flared at the end. The winding plate sports a brass medallion over the spindle that notes the size, serial number, and gear ratio. "Farlex" is etched into the winding plate. There is also a tensioner in the frame edge near the foot to adjust the drag. No bag. A nice match for spey rods in the 11' to 14' class.

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.
