Mill Tackle are the maker, so quality is assured. Price to be finalised but around £400.
Option of lineguard too.

It looks very nice but at £400 I won't be purchasing one.

I assume that's a Lythe Spitfire Loop? Very nice.

On the price mass produced Youngs are £350 to £450 retail; this is hand built in limited numbers by a master reel maker, will finalise price once stock is delivered at the end of the month.

The other option of course is an original De Luxe, mine is very good with no spindle wear and I paid £120
