Charlton SST 8500 1.2, Signature Series Titanium on request

This reel is a beautiful example of the Signature Series Titanium made by Jack and Judy in the early days of Charlton Outdoor Technologies, Inc…

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.

OTHER RARE AND COLLECTIBLE REELS

Elite Series 8500 1.2 ON REQUEST

The Elite series reels were produced concurrently, though briefly, with the Thinn-line Elite Series reels. The predecessor the Signature Series, their run was brief and featured a beautiful matte finish as standard.

Signature Series 8400 1.6, Matte Finish, Two Handles, No Logo 6995 USD

There are very few reels that come across our desk that we haven’t seen before. One of these is this beautiful 8400 1.6 in a rare satin-matte finish. Made without the Charlton crest that adorned all reels except those that bore the signature of the buyer, the effect is elegant and understated on such a rare size and finish.

Sold REELS

(Spare Spool) Signature Series 8550C Spey Spool, Matte Finish SOLD 1000 USD SOLD

This is a very rare spool, in a very rare finish. There weren’t many Signature Series reels made in the matte finish, to begin with, and probably very few spools featured this gorgeous addition. This reel appears unused, and we’ve looked very closely for any sign of wear.

Signature Series 8550C with both the Tarpon spool and the Spey pool SOLD 4300 USD SOLD

This 8550C comes with two spools: the ever popular tarpon spool as well as the tarpon spool. Both show signs of use, though both have been impeccably cared for. There are no marks on the frame that we can find, and only a tiny (and we do mean tiny) mark on the edge of the Spey spool.

Signature Series 8500 1.6 engraving “Jim Vincent ‘Speyman’” SOLD 5000 USD

The 8500 .8 and 1.2 were popular reels, though the former was made in quantities much larger than the latter. The 1.6 was the scarce cousin of these two reels and was made in truly low numbers.

Signature Series 8450C with all three spools 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.

Signature Series 8600B 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.
