    That guy makes some fine looking classic reels. Anyone have any insights into quality of construction? (personal experience)

    Panhandle asked this question a few months ago and there was not much response...I missed the Jimmy Green this year and thought I saw some of their reels at a booth in the photos. I've browsed their site in searching for a classic style reel. Does anyone have any first hand experience with their reels yet? Thoughts? I like the look of the etched and laser ported bimetal reels. Thanks.

    Potential gift item...just marking Kerry S off that gift list. One less gift to get!

    Probably a good thing. I would just sell it, buy a cheaper reel and some drugs or a hooker with the leftover cash.

    Painful that such a gift would mean so little to an angler of your stature!

    Kerry, you are a smart- logical man.
