Full specs: Main body is painted, side plates are stock TD-Z paint. Carries a black Steez SV spool and stock gears. The brake dial screw, frame screws, drag star, handle nut, and knob caps are all Hedgehog Studios orange parts. The knobs are silver SLP works and have 4 bearings in them. Handle is a now hard to find chrome Avail handle, and I use the nut plate and screw that came with it because they fit the handle better. In my opinion between Shane, Bryan and I we have achieved the perfect color balance between orange and silver.
I don't know if I will be able to fish this one or not! My personal rule is that everything I own must be fished (at least at this point). I might be in for a change.
Bryan, Shane, thank you guys a ton for the incredible work you did bringing this all together.
I actually like the contrast of the original colored side plates. All orange might be a little too much. Plus the accent parts like the knobs and star drag really compliment the reel. Well done and good luck with the reel!spencerinstl wrote:Pretty sweet. Why not paint the whole reel orange?
