Kerry,

How about a Tibor Gulfstream to go with that Sage Salt 12wt?  It has a little wear on the reel foot and a small scuff on the bottom of the frame, as shown in these photos.  It is set up for left-hand-wind, comes with backing.  Asking $400, including shipping and PayPal.  Again,  I can not ship until after Memorial Day.

Thanks,

Ted

I have an Orvis Mirage VII and a Sage 8012, both loaded with backing, line, and leader...I could part with either one.

So I haven't really spent much time with it as I bought it as part of a bundle when I picked up some tarpon gear from a guy in Miami (it was mounted on a 12wt Xi3).  I can take some pictures for you but I believe that it is the deep (non-freak) spool with Rio WF11F Tarpon (sea grass/sand) and chartreuse (I think) backing.  I think it's the nickel color but may be black (definitely not gold!) and has the blue Cordura pouch.  This is a pre-USA reel.  Reel is like an 8/8+. I would be good with $350 shipped.

Just tossing this out there. My buddy has a original Orvis Vortex 11/12 for cheap. $150 shipped PP. Scuffed up mint drag, will drown anything out there.
