I purchased this reel directly from Mont Schroeder of the Mt. Rainier Fly Reel Works several years ago. This is one of Mont's bench made reels that are no longer in production. When I spoke with Mont he told me that it was 1 of 10 that he made in a blue anodized finish. The original retail on this reel was $495. Includes the original bag, hex wrench, and paperwork. The reel has never been used it has just been sitting in my display cabinet since I originally purchased it. The bag Mont sent the reel in appears to have been used at some point as it is a little soiled and faded. It is also a bit snug for the reel, however, it is the bag that I originally received with the purchase of the reel from Mont.
