I'm looking for a fly reel for my 14wt that I use for tuna and shark. Billy Pate Marlin, Abel Super 14, Tibor Pacific or something similar. New or used.

I have a gold tibor gulfstream with that's in amazing shape and is about 1 year old. It's on a custom 14wt rod now but I would sell it without the rod. It's about an 700-800 dollar reel depending on where you look. I would take 550 for the reel only with the backing and flyline.
Here's a few pics.
Also a link with more info on the reel.
PM me if you are interested.

The reels you mentioned are the right reels for what you want to do, while the Tibor Gulfstream would also do the job. In case you do not know or are not looking, the best place to find a Pate Marlin, Tibor Pacific, or Abel 14 would be on eBay.
