SHIMANO Power Aero XTB 14000 Surf Long Cast Reel (EDM) - MADE IN JAPAN This reel needs no intro but all I can say is that it is superb. If you do Surf fishing and need distance, this reel is for you. It is a recent model so it has all the newest Shimano technologies: Super Slow Oscillation, X-Protect, Waterproof drag, One piece bail, Antitangle fin, Forged Aluminum frame, etc., etc. It is rigid and it feels precise in every movement. The line management is sublime. It really adds pleasure for us Surf casters. Last, this is the lightest Surf Long Cast reel manufactured by Shimano, with the exception of the Technium, it weights only 505 grams. Selling it because I bought two, being overzealous, but I only need one. Condition: Reel has not been fished more than 8 hours. I am OCD and it is clean as new. Only minor detail is that there are a couple of scratches in the reel foot from mounting it on my rods. Includes: Everything as when it came new (see pics). Box, papers, spool adjustment washers, spare spool, full kit of reducers. Price: This reel retails for about $450 in Europe. My price is $319 shipped to your door. Payment via Paypal and please follow forum rules.
Shimano Ultegra 5500 Ci4+ XSC Selling because I am upgrading. I have two of these reels, both have been used very lightly for about a year. I am obsessive when I take care of my gear, cleaned and lubed after every outing. Reels are tight as the first day. You will fee like you received a new reel. Key facts: This is the exact same reel as the Ultegra 5500 Ci4+ XTC that currently retails for $330, only think that is different is the color. Long Cast, superb line lay with Slow Oscillation Hagane gear Carbon composite body and rotor Very light only 440 grams 100% serviceable by Shimano USA, all parts available through their online catalog Includes all you can see in the picture: original box and papers, spool adjustment washers, spool reducers. PRICE: $214.99 per reel + Shipping Shipping: within the US only via Priority mail Payment: via Paypal as the forum requires/suggests
DAIWA EMBLEM SURF LIGHT 2020 - Specialist surfcasting slow oscillation reel Daiwa Emblem Surf Light 35 CW QD-P Ref. EMSL2035CWQDP This beautiful reel was launched in Europe last year 2020 and it was a total hit. Very hard to find now as they sell fast. It is a step up from the previous Emblem Surf 2018. Almost 100 grams lighter (530 grams), more refined overall, carbon composite rotor, more torque, extra seals at the handle mating points with the body, Magseal, conical spool with long cast lip, etc. If you need to reach those fish past the second bar, this is the reel! I did spool it and field tested it and it is smooth, robust and delivers the line flawlessly which translates into far casting distances. It is essentially new. I did my research and maintaining it should be no problem, it shares several of the critical components with US market Daiwa reels (antireverse clutch, bearings, etc.). This will pair very nicely with a Long Cast Rod to reel in any size fish you want. I am a reel hoarder so this one has to go. This Emblem Surf is comparable to reels that are much more expensive and I dare to call it a mini Basia. I would say is comparable to the Shimano Ultegra 14000 Ci4+, which is $340, but with better sealing. If you need the full specs on the reel you can Google "Daiwa France Emblem Surf Light" I paid close to $250 PRICE $234.99 + Shipping Quick specs: Weight 530 grams * Quick Drag System 33lb * Line recovery/crank 35" * Spool 1: 300m/0.30mm * Spool 2: 300m/0.18mm * 6+1 bearings (5 sealed) * Air rotor * Digigear II * Infinite antireverse * DS4 polycarbonate body and DS5 carbon rotor * Double oscillation line lay * Foldable aluminium handle * Anti-tangle guides on the axle and rotor to stop line catching under the spool * Manual pick-up closure * Heavy duty metal line clip with shock absorber for distance marking * Magseal.
