This is a brand new, never used factory demo Large Arbor reel that comes to you in the box with the heavy-duty Orvis pouch and papers. I have loaded it with 20 lb. Micron and a used, but very serviceable, SA Mastery WF8-F line. The reel is machined from solid bar-stock, aerospace grade 6262-T6 aluminum. SALTWATER SAFE. A true large arbor reel -- less change in spool diameter as a running fish takes line means the drag setting stays consistent. Ultra smooth transition from static (spool not in motion) to dynamic (spool in motion with drag engaged). Low start-up inertia helps to protect light tippets during start-up. 200% more drag surface area than Orvis traditional Battenkill disc reels. Greater heat dissipation across greater surface area. $95.00 plus $8.00 shipping in the lower 48, add $2.00 for ins. Pay by money order and reel ships the next business day.
