I bought this Billy Pate Tarpon reel and spare spool for a trip, mounted lines on them and practiced casting, and then the trip was cancelled. They are darn close to new condition. Buyer can return these in three days if they don't meet his expectations.
This is a right-handed, anti-reverse model which means no skinned knuckles when the fish takes line. It is rated as a 12 wt floating line and 300 yds of 30# backing. It would even take big spey lines . you can see one at ww.tiborreels.com this reel has the word "guide" engraved on the foot. Comes with original boxes, and covers.
This reel retails for $510 and the spools for $200. I am asking $440 for both.
