THIS reel HAS BEEN SOLD.

The Chris Lythe Scotton Trotter 3½" diameter centrepin reel in unused as-new condition 2011

This reel, completed in June 2011, represents a very rare opportunity to obtain an example of this most sought-after model in as-new & unused condition.

This is indeed an all rounder, so light and compact that it is a dream to perform the ‘Wallis Cast’ with, so unobtrusive that it doesn’t upset the balance of the lightest roach rod, but strong enough to use for barbel, salmon and pike spinning etc.

It is anodised a classic dead black with faux ivory handles, blued steel check wheel and pawl, brass foot, check button and screws, nickel silver spokes and line pins.

The width of the spool is ⅞".
The reel has a removable and extraordinarily well made BP line guard.

*Please note: On this reel, the check is operated via a sliding brass button on the back plate & is set up for left hand wind.
However, as the difference in tension is very slight when retrieving or paying out line, this is no hindrance when winding with the right hand.
The primary function of the check is to stop the spool rotating when the reel is not in use.

Supplied in its Chris Lythe cotton reel bag with draw string closure.

Price: £1,400
