VR Design Salar Incomparable Fly Reel 3 5/8"


A very nice VR Design (Vladimir Rachenko) Salar Incomparabile raised pillar fly reel, 3 5/8" diameter and set up for LHW. This was an ex-demo reel of Vlad's and is in good lightly used condition. There is some rash to the raised pillar portion of the frame at the top, as well as to the frame edge in a few spots and a few other small areas, but the reel is in very good shape overall and is mechanically perfect. Clear silver aluminum frame and spool with a brass foot (which shows the start of some patina). Raised pillar design, this is the "Standard" version of this model with double pillars on the top of the frame and single pillars on each side. Two medallions set into the front plate are engraved, the first with the maker and the serial number "P01" (I assume this meant "Prototype 1") and the second with the model. The backplate features the drag adjuster dial with twelve positions. Ivorine handle. Smooth click and pawl design and the spool is palmable for extra control. The reel weighs 12.5 ounces on my scale. The reel packs into a neoprene pouch and the box with original paperwork. A very nice and very reasonable package here salmon and steelhead anglers.
