I took a gamble on paying $125 shipped for a reel (sight unseen) posted on FB marketplace which only showed a gold Tiburon frame and when I asked the seller for more pics and she sends back a pic of gold Accuplates....I said sold even though I wasn't sure what I was looking at but I figured the used plates and frame are worth the price alone...... Am I right?

So..... Did I hit the jackpot?    What exactly is this reel?

 Pj, you scored and did hit the jackpot!!! It looks like either a 113h or 114h Accurate, tiburon conversion, give it a good cleaning and go catch
 some big fish with it.

 Tight lines!

I'd say it's a 114H with a Tiburon frame & Accurate Accuplates. It's to big to be a 113H. Don't worry I'll take it off your hands & even pay the shipping.  JACKPOT!!!!      Rudy

I'm gonna keep it but not sure what how it should be used...... Trolling, flat fall jigging, or heavy bait?

Nice. Accuplates and Tib. frame, even line. Who knows what kinda guts are in it? $125---jackpot! Love the Accurate upgrade products and their value will increase with time. A little heavy for aluminum but that's a + for me.
Maybe an opportunity, if you have the time, to delve into servicing it yourself. Plenty of help here. And if you're gonna saltwater fish it, you need to service it at least once/year anyways.

Fishing tackle is an art form and all fish caught on the right tackle are"Gfish"!

114h were the standard trolling reels on the shorter trips back when there were Albacore down here.  It's what I have one for with a Tib frame.

Pj, I can handle it for you. Just pay for parts & shipping. I would enjoy doing it, the 114H is my favorite.       Rudy
