    ISLANDER LA (LARGE ARBOR) 3.8 FLY REEL, GOLD ANODIZED

    RIGHT HAND WIND AT PRESENT (Check with Islander about how to change over to left hand)

    THE LA LARGE ARBOR REEL IS RATED AS AN 8 OR 9 WEIGHT SIZE.

    THE NEWER LX 3.8 IS NARROWER AND LIGHTER BUT ONLY RATED AS AN 8 WEIGHT SIZE.

    THIS REEL IS IN NEAR AS NEW AND EXCELLENT CONDITION, AND LOADED WITH BACKING

    VERY RARELY USED (NO MORE THAN TWICE). I AM THE OWNER

    THERE ARE NO VISIBLE MARKS, SCRATCHES, OR OTHER NEGATIVES ABOUT IT

    DRAG IS SMOOTH AS FACTORY NEW

    WHY AM I SELLING THIS REEL? BECAUSE I'VE JUST STARTED GETTING SERIOUS ABOUT FLY FISHING AGAIN, AND BECAUSE I HAVE ANOTHER LA 3.8 IN THE SAME CONDITION AND AM GOING TO USE IT ON MY T&T VECTOR 9 WEIGHT ROD (REMEMBER, THE LA 3.8 HANDLES A 8 TO 9 LINE) .  IN ADDITION, I JUST GOT A TIBOR EVERGLADES AND PUT IT ON MY SAGE Ti2 8 WEIGHT ROD.  TIBOR IS ALSO LOCAL TO ME AND WITHIN 20 MILES OF MY HOME.

    A NEW LX 3.8 SELLS FOR $640.00

    NO FACTORY BOX OR BAG ARE INCLUDED. THIS IS THE WAY I RECEIVED IT IN A RAFFLE.

    IT WAS BRAND NEW THEN.

    I WILL SEND IT IN A VERY NICE USEABLE NEOPRENE PROTECTIVE REEL BAG

    I AM SURE YOU WILL BE HAPPY WITH IT!

    PRICE IS $395.00
    SHIPPING TO CONTINENTAL USA
    OR PICKUP IN BROWARD COUNTY, FLORIDA

    After thinking more about it. Keeping reel for a 10 wt outfit. Way to good a reel to let go.
