Kapusta 500PT Ridgeline Tarpon Reel


A nice Kapusta 500PT Ridgeline tarpon reel from saltwater reel maker Tom Kapusta. LHW. 5" in diameter with a 1" spool width and capacity for approximately 275 yards of backing and a WF11. Large arbor design with substantial porting on the spool and frame to reduce weight, which comes in at 11.7 ounces. Black anodized throughout with a wooden knob and silver counterbalance. Excellent used condition with the mounting marks on the foot and a few tiny nicks on the spool and frame. A past owner has put a little head cement over a line label on the underside of the foot (this should be removable). No bag. A hard-to-find reel from this small production maker.

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.
