Tiburon SST reels, sale or trade, low gears!
I currently have 2 each of the Tiburon SST model reels in size 16, 20 and 30. All are the American made models, all have upgraded larger Tib handles, and all have FACTORY INSTALLED LOW GEARS. All are full of Jerry Brown hollow spectra. All have had minimal use. All have orig boxes and papers etc.
I would like to sell one of each size leaving me with one of each size. Or, I'd like to trade one of each size for a smaller SST reel size 7540, SST6 or SST8 in similar condition. Sale price is $450 with spectra for each.
For those unfamiliar with the low gears in these reels, at the request of many owners who wanted a lower gear instead of the normal 1.9:1 gear for grinding in large tuna, the factory had a special run of 100 gears made several yrs ago which quickly sold out at a cost of $150 for the gear exchange. The new low gear is 1:1 while leaving the high gear the same at 4.7:1. biggest fish I've caught to date was on one of the size 20 reels and I cranked in a 90# bft effortlessly on the Excel several yrs ago. One of my sons used to go with me on summer trips which is why I bought two of each size. He no longer has a need for them nor do I. If they don't move, they'll go to ebay next. PM me with any questions or call.
No pics, you'd want to inspect them anyways, they are in mint condition. I'm in San Diego and would prefer to stay local with this but its possible to ship them should suitable arrangements be negotiated. thx Jim
