Signature Series 8500 1.2, Jack Samson Signature 6995 USD

This 8500 1.2 is an early example of the Signature Series, prior to the change to carbon fiber as the braking material. The reel was owned by and used by one….

Signature Series 8500 1.2, RH, with Jack Charlton’s Signature, New in Box + Papers + Extra Spool 7795 USD

This offering is yet another from a collection of Charlton Reels that have never been lined or used, and kept in their original packaging.

8500 .8, RH, New with Jack Charlton’s signature 5995 USD

The Signature Series reels, the flagship models of Charlton Outdoor Technologies, Inc., offered the option for the owner to engrave their own signature on the drag knob. Many were, and those with the signatures of famed anglers and guides have offered collectors an opportunity to own a reel that bears the signature of the original owner.

8500 1.2, RH with an extra spool, New in Box 4695 USD

This is yet another example of an unused, never fished Charlton reel. It ships exactly as it did on the day it left Charlton Outdoor Technologies, Incorporated. For a collector wanting to display the spool along with an assembled reel, or an angler wishing to “fish one and save one”, this would be a perfect opportunity.

8500 1.2, cork drag, original box and papers 2000 USD

This reel is a great example of an early Charlton Signature Series that was produced before the shift to carbon fibre drag material. It’s been used a handful of times in fresh water

Seamaster Set, Direct Drive: Mark I, Mark II, Mark III, Mark IIIW, Mark IV Price on Request

As a set, these reels represent the entire line of Seamaster “Mark” reels, all in direct drive. All are lightly use. All have stainless pillars except for the Mark IIIW

8450C 7/8 Spool, with a Spare Spool Price: 2200 USD

The 8450 was the most popular of the Charlton reels built for trout. The 8350 was small (3” in diameter), perhaps most suited for rod weights 1-4, and the Signature Series 8400’s were slightly heavy for a trout-weight setup.

8550C Bonefish Spool LH 3200 USD

Another used but well-maintained 8550C, this one featuring the bonefish spool. Perhaps too ahead of its time when it was first introduced, this spool and frame combination may actually be the best bonefish reel ever produced.

8550C Tarpon Spool LH 3750 USD

This is a great example of the popular 4.5-inch 8550C reel, featuring the mid-arbor tarpon spool. Of the four spools made for the 8550C frame, this one would have perhaps the largest number of applications.

Thinn Line Elite 8500 .8 SOLD $3495

The .8 version of the 1.2 listed above, this reel features a very early serial number. A rare example of a Thinn Line Elite reel, it features a cork drag and a ¼ inch drive. The reel is in beautiful condition and ships with its original zippered case from 1994.

Thinn Line Elite 8500 1.2 SOLD $4495

The Thinn Line and Thinn Line Elite reels were internally the same as the Signature Series, though externally they were slightly different. The major difference was the size of the drag knob in the Thinn Line and Thinn Line Elite series, smaller than the Signature Series drag but still maintaining the 360-degree rotation that all Charltons were known for.

Signature Series 8400 1.2 SOLD $3995 SOLD

This reel was made by Jack Charlton in 1999, and he retained it due to its rarity. The reel has been lined but never fished, and is in perfect condition. The line has been removed.

Signature Series 8400 .8 SOLD $3495 SOLD

Production models of the 8400 series began with SN 9000, and the serial number of this reel (8000) marks it as one of the first production prototypes. Fully functional, this was Jack’s personal 8400 .8, one of a matched set of reels that he produced for himself and Judy in 1999.

Signature Series 8500 .8 SOLD $2150 SOLD

This reel was part of Jacks personal collection, and is a used reel. It is an early model cork drag reel, likely produced in 1995. The reel comes with its original pouch. If you are looking for a reel to fish, this is a perfect one.
