Hi B'Der's,

I have a Progear Albacore Special 540 for sale. This is a nice example of a classic progear reel. The reel is rated for 30# of drag by the mfg, and has a capacity of 350yds of 30# mono line. This is a Penn 99 sized reel, and based on my measurements of the spool, is about the same size as the Penn Baja Special, Penn Torque 300, and the Torium 30. The reel has the 5.1 gears and is a tank, maybe a little lighter than the Torque 300 but a tank. Includes reel and rod clamp.

I am selling this as I have too many reels in this size class and would like to find a good home for this with someone that wants to put it to good use. Would prefer a local sale
in the LA area, but if someone out of the area really wants it can work out shipping

Tight lines.

Thanks Robert. This one is in very nice condition. And you are right Tom, always tough to let the good stuff go. Sometimes I don't realize how good it is until it is gone! So many times I have thought, "I wish I still had that...."

Bulletproof reels. I've owned several OG Pro Gears. Transitioned out of them strictly because of weight, moving toward light rods and reels but yah...wish I still them as backups for sure. Possibly the most reliable reels ever made.
