Default Martin MG-3 and 2- Martin Model 63's

With a recent reel purchase for an incoming vintage rod I need to recoup some of the costs so the wife doesn't hang me.

Martin MG-3 with a Spare Spool $110 shipped (This has been fished exactly twice since I got it from Ard it was NIB when I got it from him so virtually unused at this point. One spool is currently backed and spooled with an Airflo WF2F Super Dri Elite that can be worked into a deal.)

These reels would be great for 2,3 or 4 weights ideally would also probably hold a 5 weight as well. They will hold a DT6 with about 15' of backing which maxes out the spool. Had to try as I was curious if they would hold a DT6 line.

Martin MG-3 is all that remains, 2 spools no line or backing. $100 shipped used twice so nearly new.

MG 3 will easily hold 2,3,4 possibly 5 and a 6DT with little to no backing on the reel. Reel is 3" the spool it 2 3/4" diameter about 7/8" wide. I did spool my DT6 Airflo on and it was all line with about 10' of backing

Spooled with a WF2F line it will hold about 150 yds of 20# backing.
