Those reels are absolutely fantastic, for some reason they remind me of the 'The Time Machine' by HG Wells.

I was lucky to see some images the new reel a little while ago. I've closely studied some enlarged pictures and the quality of work is outstanding. If wm+ ever decides to produce these they are garenteed to become a sought after classic. There are many good builders out there but these are something unique in the reel world.
I have laid aside business, and gone a'fishing.

That's the fist time I wish I hadn't double clicked on a photo. Wow... I need to sit down!
Congratulations to a wonderful craftsman.

Absolutely stunning, definitely a true work of art.

I am normally of the persuasion that fishing tackle should be used for ....... fishing.
However if I were fortunate enough to possess this reel, it would take pride of place
on the mantle shelf where I could admire it's precision to detail and it's inherent beauty
every day.

Not too shabby WM+. Starting to get the hang of it now. :Wink:
