    both reels retail for the same price which is 129.00 a piece, atleast anywhere ive looked.  i am asking 100 dollars each firm!, thats 60 dollars less and i swear there is not a scratch on either one.  they were used only once, two years ago for about 6-7 hours, they have never touched the ground and always kept safe.  they were made in england.  shipping anywhere in the continental US, lower 48, is flat rate of 25 dollars insurance included UPS 2-3 days select.  By the way both reels can be used in saltwater.  The only reason I bought two other reels is because I misplaced these two and could not find them for about a year and a half, after I already bought my other two.  Both of the reels do not have line on them.  Any questions or if you need pics let me know, you can pm me or here is my email address. and sorry i didnt post all this before, maybe this will give you a better idea what these reels can do.  orvis has been in business since 1856.  Both of the reels performed flawlessly and excellent.  Perfect drag and easy to adjust.  thank you.
