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.

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

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.
