Valentine 400 Planetary Gear Classic w/extra spool and lines (2017)

Winning Bid: $115.00

Item condition: Used


The Valentine 400 is a moderately large planetary gear design reel that functionally provides an anti-reverse reel with a slight multiplying effect on the retrieve.  SF president Brad Burns has caught many striped bass including some really large ones with this reel.  This 400 comes with two spools.  One has backing and a Teeny 550 line, and the other has backing and a 10w full sink line.  The spools can be changed in seconds, and while this reel is set up for left hand retrieve.  It can be changed to right hand retrieve relatively easily, but requires a small part that may or may not be available from Valentine.

This reel is used, but it is in like new condition in every way.  The lines appear new also.

The reel comes in the original Valentine zip leather pouch, and the spare spool is in a drawstring bag.
