Absolutely beautiful IRT 400 with Patriotic Colors!  Love the very cool ergonomic G1 reel foot. 

 

Everything but the bearings are Made in the USA!

 

Comes with hard box,oil, grease, tool etc.  Everything you see in the pics.  I bought this Manufacturer Refurbished last year but only used it a couple of times.  The reel is stunningly beautiful IMHO...Everything operates perfectly.  These reels sell for $480 elsewhere.  

 

$390 Firm...  Shipping is FREE to continental USA only...  Elsewhere I will get a quote and add it to the price.

Just curious but why are you selling it?  Also, from the specs, it seems smaller than a VS 150.  Is that right?  Also, specs say 30”:retrieve rate which seems really low.

Well, my dad passed away 8 weeks ago this Friday.  He and I were fishermen partners for decades and to memorialize our time and our relationship I decided to dedicate my fishing to using reels and to some extent rods from the time period where we were most active in the sport.  As I started to acquire vintage reels, most notably Penn Z series, I realized how great these reels really are.  So, my new venture takes capital and I promised the wife that I would not just accumulate reels lol, I would also sell some off to pay for the reels I am buying.

Sorry to hear about your father and thanks for the details.  Let me think about it a bit.

Thanks, this has been a rough road, that is for sure.
