    It's a NEW classic. These are the pics from the maker and I should have it in a couple of weeks.

    I will be breaking it in mid April in Northern BC and hope to hear it scream. DSC03521.jpg DSC03520.jpg DSC03519.jpg DSC03518.jpg

    That's one sweet looking reel as I'm sure is the price. Good luck and waiting for review

    Beautiful reel. With all those ball bearings, I doubt that it will scream too loudly. But I hope you get to hear it tick right smartly.
    I too, am looking forward to your report.
