Looking for a used condition Tranx 500 HG, using it for rockfish so I don't care what is looks like.

You don't need a Tranx for rockfish. The Penn Fathom II Level Wind is a lot more durable and the lower gear ratio is better when you have heavy weights. The Tranx has shit parts inside that corrode easily. The Penn is built like a tank. It takes abuse and keeps on going. The price is a lot more affordable.


This is the biggest shit part in the Tranx. A zinc die cast part that is guaranteed to corrode. You might as well buy 4-5 of these parts and swap them out every year.

$350 + 10 priority shipping. Looks rough in some areas but feels smooth and mechanically sound. Fished one season. Ready to fish with 50 lb power pro.

My reel is sold but considering you haven't contacted me about the reel, I assume you want something cheaper, which you probably won't find. The crappiest Tranx still go for 350+and mine was a solid reel.
