This was one of the reels I got from Keith. It's so fancy and high end that I can't picture myself ever using it. Frankly this thing is in such good condition - no scratches or marks at all on the reel foot - I'm not sure it's ever been used.

He encouraged me to sell anything I wouldnt use and further convinced me to not feel bad about it by setting the condition that I use some of the proceeds to get out on a charter at least once. These reels are pretty high dollar items so I could potentially get myself a spot on a boat and have enough left over to get a less fancy 2 speed.

Problem is I'm not sure what size this fella is to make a proper eBay listing. Anyone familiar with these?

I'm sure the dirty washing machine background would really drive home the high end nature of this item.

In the first pic the 2 penn reels for size comparison are a 12/0 and a 3/0

Thank you. I knew someone would know.

His son was really sure he didnt want any of this stuff. I kept asking.

The number "9" on the bottom edge of the left side plate designates the size.

Fascinating. I didn't know that. Thanks. I'd always gone by the number of holes in the crossbar along with general size.

I remember seeing that reel in his workshop when he lived in Gulf Breeze.

Super cool reel, I'm just unlikely to use this one and have limited space

Big. Valuable. Excellent shape. Unlikely to see use... Great candidate to get sold.

Hi, my name is Lee and I have a fishing gear problem.

I have all of the answers, yup, no, maybe.
