I haven't been very active on this forum for about the past year but I wanted to let y'all know I didn't forget about you. I was sharing some of my work on another forum and thought y'all might want to see it too.

We've been super tuning and upgrading reels for a long time here at the shop but there was always something missing. At first it was very rewarding to take a reel and make it the baddest preforming reel out there but that satifaction started to fade. I guess becasue we've done so many that it's just a normal everyday thing. There was always something missing, something to set the reel apart, somthing that said "hey I'm a special reel". I took my artisan side of being a rod builder and combined it with my craftsmanship of being a reel repair tech and this is what I came up with. Here's just a few we had laying around....enjoy.

This one was a perfect match to the tiger wrap on this custom rod we built. Honestly, the pics don't do justice to how badass this combo looks.

I call this one Kit from Knight Rider. I even thought about painting some red dashes on the front but I left it with the carbon fiber look. Probably a good idea since Kit wasn't carbon fiber. I also did the smaller parts like the thumb bar, tension knob, star drag, and handle.
