Thank you. I think I should have clear anodized the reel foot. I can always make another.

Finished faster? :oops: Lead time has been ugly but it is improving. Should have it to two week lead times on custom orders by fall plus inventory on popular options. Inventory is very good these days.

Keep up the good work on your anodizing looking forward to seeing the new reel you are making.

Hi guys here's my first attempt at reel making. It's spinning :wink: . Got the chance to fish it spring last year and a bit on the winter time. Didn't get to go out that much but i did manage to land a chinny with it.

The reel is 5.25" with stainless backplate so it's got some weight to it. All of the machining was done manually. It needs some lightening and i haven't had the chance to do so yet, as My little boy has got me working double time :P

I have much more to learn but hey you start somewhere right?

Tight lines.

As someone who has actually held that reel I can honestly say that I was very impressed for a first time effort, I wouldn't hesitate to fish it if I had the chance. Spinnerdoc and I also talked about some of the changes that might come to fruition in the next one (assuming it happens). Perhaps I'll get to own that one. :wink:

Why do we call them buildings when they're finished? Shouldn't they be called Builts?
