For sale: new SA System 2 78 reel

I have for sale one brand new in the box Scientific Angler System 2 fly reel in the 78 model with the manufacturer’s warranty. These reels are perfect for your 7wt or 8wt rods and would work fine on a 9wt too. All of my lighter trout rods have the 67 reels on them and I can vouch for their performance. This reel would be a perfect match for your steelhead rod this winter as well as a variety of other types of angling. You can’t believe the sensitivity of the drag on these reels for the money. Very sturdy construction and they are made in England. Here are a few comments about the System 2 reel from the Scientific Angler’s site:

Scientific Anglers System 2 Fly Reel
Designed to put the brakes on runaway fish.
Like all Scientific Angler™ products, each System™ reel has been specifically designed to fulfill a specific purpose. System™ 2 reels are the most copied reel design in history. Built to hold up under the harshest fishing conditions in the most corrosive saltwater environments, they set the standard for how serious anglers measure pure fish-stopping power.
• Made of durable, dependable aluminum alloy
• Perforated for lighter, easier handling
• Full frame for durability
• Counter-balanced spool for vibration-free runs
• Inexpensive quick-change spools
• Highly polished heavy-duty stainless steel disc drag
• Heat- and fade-resistant drag pads
• Palming rim for added drag pressure
• CNC-machine finishing process for tight tolerances and smoothness
• Polyurethane-coated for corrosion and abrasion resistance
• Low start up inertia
• Anodized reel foot adds corrosion resistance
• Large, flat heavy-duty rubber handle provides a great grip for long, hard fights
• "No Tools Needed" easy-change from right- to left-hand retrieve
* The perfect size for midweight species such as steelhead and bass, as well as bonefish and other smaller saltwater species
* Light but powerful, with all the features of the larger System 2 models

These reels retail for $160 and I’m only asking $125 for the reel. Please e-mail me at for more information. Thanks. -Cody
