Marinko Baljak Black Beauty 150 Fly Reel


A Marinko Baljak "Black Beauty" 150 fly reel, 3 1/2" diameter and set up for LHW. The maker's name and the model are stamped into each side of the reel foot. The reel appears to be unfished. It weighs 14.1 ounces on my scale. Classic S-handle design with brightly polished aluminum frame, spool and foot, with black matte sideplates. The backplate has a poacher's knob, oil port, and then a drag adjustment dial that is more akin to a Hermann reel than a Bogdan. The drum style drag is a variation of the Bogdan style and quite similar. I believe Mr. Baljak builds these reels from his workshop in Croatia. The reel packs into a red fleece drawstring pouch.
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.
