    Have for sale a Penn International 80 ST reel which makes an excellent kite reel. Reel is in excellent, just serviced, condition and has not been fished since the service. During the service all bearings were cleaned and repacked with fresh grease. I would rate the reel a 10 mechanically and maybe a 9 1/2 cosmetically as it has a few random scratches and dings. Please see pictures for cosmetic condition. Note that I removed the line so that the spool condition could be shown and the reel is now spooled with approximately 900 yard of 200 pound spectra and a short heavy top shot of monofilament line of which I am not sure of the test.. Included are all components of the rod mount hardware, an upgraded reel clamp, the original box and literature. Price is $720.00 with local pick up in San Pedro, or will ship on your $ when using PayPal Friends and Family. or add 3.5 percent for fee.

    Naw!,,,,,not that bad. Strange how the bigger reels seem to feel more natural and manageable as trips progress. And, there's nothing like knowing that the gear you have in your hands is capable of handling any situation that presents itself. I love the 80's and have been fishing one (an AVET) as a kite reel for a few years. So MUCH more capability than a 50 W. You can fish any size kite reel you like, but why would you select a tool that doesn't provide the best possible chance of landing the fish of a lifetime. I'll say this, I've been very fortunate to participate in the excitement of long range fishing and am so looking forward to the trips I have in my future. Thanks for your comments and interest in this reel.

    I had one for long rage kite fishing. I never had any worries of being spooled or having to use a throw over backup rig. I wish I never sold it.
