J. W. Young spey reel + extra spool

At a hefty 10.4 ounces, this reel would balance well with a larger spey rod. Its capacity is factory rated as WF9F or DT9F plus 250 yards of 30# Micron. Its capacity is big but not huge, somewhat greater than a Pflueger Medalist 1498. It is the same 4-1/4" width as the mighty 1540 model, but has a standard width spool. This is the Model 1535.
For those not familiar with the J.W. Young 1500-series reels, this is a handsome hunk, very much in the British spey tradition. It has a perforated rim-control spool, a traditional adjustable click drag that even with one pawl engaged is amply strong, and clicks as sweetly as a Hardy or a well-tuned revolver. It has a rather spiffy dark grey crackle finish. Both the reel and extra spool are new and unused, in foam-padded factory boxes. Since J.W. Young is apparently out of business, these fine big reels are getting hard to find.
$80 including s&h in North America.

I'm afraid not. But the appearance of the reel is in the Hardy-inspired tradition.
I believe that Jim Vincent was using one during the "Basic Spey & Two Handed Fly Rod Casting" video.

Today, in a remarkable coincidence, another new Model 1535 and extra spool was auctioned on eBay. The winning bid, of 22, was $77.00 (not including shipping).
