The System 3 is absolutely the finest reel SA ever put their name on. These were built in the US and anodized in a deep burgundy color. This was SA’s crack at the high-end reel market. They were produced in the early 90’s and at that time were $600+ This reel is in excellent condition and includes the original box, reel pouch, and manual. I’m convinced it’s never been used. Will hold a 12wt. line and 300+ yds of 30# backing.
