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.

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.

Signature Series 8550C, Spey spool SOLD $4995 SOLD

An unused 8550C, with the rare Spey spool. This spool was produced in the lowest quantities of the four spool options for the 8550, and is a larger capacity than the tarpon spool. It would fit the largest Spey lines with ease.

Signature Series 8550C, Offshore Spool with Jack’s Signature SOLD SOLD

This is another one-of-a-kind: an 8550C with Jack Charlton’s signature on the drag knob. This reel was made by Jack for himself, and is one of a few reels that he made with his own signature.

8350C, with both spools SOLD $1295 SOLD

The smallest and lightest of the Charlton Reels, the 8350 has long been a favorite of trout fisherman. This reel comes with both the 1/5 and the rarer 1/2 spool, and the spare spool comes with a case.
