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.

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.

8600B Spare Spool 1895 USD

This is a rare find: a never used spool for an 8600B in right-hand wind. The largest size of the Charlton Reels lineup, the 8600B was a favorite at first of off offshore and tarpon fisherman before being discovered by Spey fisherman.

8350C 1,500 USD (RECENTLY REDUCED FROM $1,800)

Another recent addition to the our Charlon offerings, this reel needs no introduction. Featuring the popular 1-5 spool, this reel is ready for any light freshwater use on rods from 1-6 weights.

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.

Thinn Line 8400 .8 SOLD 2200 USD SOLD

The Thinn-Line series of reels predated the popular Signature Series, and were only made with cork drags. The drag knob was large but not as large as the later reels, and what’s so cool about these early models is that you can see the earliest iteration of the one-revolution drag knob.

Signature Series 8550C with Tarpon Spool SOLD 3495 USD SOLD

This is a pristine 8550C with the tarpon spool, RH wind. It has been filled with backing (removed by us for this sale) and appears never to have been mounted on a rod. Its condition is a minimal click below what it would be if it had sat in its case and box since its construction.

Signature Series 8500 .8 SOLD 2,100 USD SOLD (RECENTLY REDUCED FROM $2,400)

This reel comes from a private collection, and has been barely used. Once lined but not fished, the reel shows hardly any evidence of ever being on a boat or stream. There is some light rust spots in the Charlton crest on the spool release dial, though elsewhere it’s hard to find any mark at all.

Signature Series 8550C, Tarpon spool SOLD 3200 USD SOLD

This is a great example of a reel that has been well cared for. The 8550C was one of the more popular of the Signature Series, and the tarpon spool was likely the most widely produced.

(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.
