I am selling the Pre-98 Ross Gunnison 2 fly reel along with the Ross pouch shown in the photos. The reel has a matte finish. Functionally, the reel is in good working order. The reel does have some cosmetic issues/blemishes/signs of use. I've tried to show them in the photos, but will expand on them here. The inside edge/rim of the spool has a noticeable gash (gash may be too strong of a word, but it's more/deeper than just a typical surface scratch); the gash/scratch is shown in the 6th photo. There also are a number of small marks/scratches along the edge of the frame primarily from the 4 o'clock to 8 o'clock positions. There are various other small/light marks, but the ones that really stand out are mentioned above. IMO the reel is nowhere near beater status, but it's certainly not mint either. If you're looking for a collector's piece, this isn't the one you want. But if you're looking for a classic fishing tool and are OK with some signs of honest use so to speak I think you'll be fine with the condition. Asking $150 shipped within the USA. Payment by PayPal. Please send a message if interested.
