    Hey guys I have a billy pate tarpon, direct drive, solid spool, all black that I had cleaned, replaced the main gear and drag spring and knob. All work was done at Tibor since the reel was from the 80's.

    It doesnt see much use and a Salmon or Bonefish model would suit me better. If anyone has a salmon or bonefish model to trade let me know. Maybe this tarpon would be a nice fit for a larger spey.

    thanks

    You might want to mention the retrieve . . .

    Absolutely bullet-proof, lifetime reel that can do anything. Great big salt or spey reel for someone!

    Would you consider selling it and at what price?

    I don't really want to give it up which is why I was looking for a trade. Thank you for the offer but I do not wish to sell it outright.
