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
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
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.

|8550C Bonefish Spool LH
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
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
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.

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.

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.
|Signature Series 8500 1.2, with spare spool SOLD
This is a standard 8500 1.2, made after the switch to the carbon fiber drag material and the ½ inch drive that accompanied the change. As a reel to use, this is a perfect one. It comes with a spare spool, also unused and in its own green Cordura case.
|Signature Series 8500 1.2 with Jack Charlton’s Signature SOLD
This reel was one of the earliest Signature Series produced and is engraved with Jack Charlton’s signature. It is an example of the early runs of these reels and features the cork drag and ¼” drive that typifies these pre-carbon models.
|8450C, with all three spools SOLD
The 8450 was one of the most popular reels Charlton made, and this one was in the hands of the man himself. There isn’t a signature on this reel, it doesn’t have a low serial number, but it was owned and fished by Jack. Judy Charlton has included photograph of Jack fishing this reel, and it is as he left it.
