Interesting... I'm usually a fan of your work but this one doesn't quite do it for me. Maybe its the multitude of colors, seems a bit jarring. But nice work regardless!

I like everything except the knobs which to me make it seem to tacky for such a fine reel. If you had the black megabass knobs with the little end inserts that were red, gold, or purple to match the reel it would look perfect. Daiwa also has a darker red knob that would match the darker red in the reel great. Or if you want something different that really pops keep it as is! Always use what you like not what someone else would like!

Rather than replace the knobs (I kind of like them on that reel), perhaps lose all the gold and replace it with purple frame screws, handle retainer and knob caps. Same purple you have on the line guide and cast cap. Usually I can make 3 colors work, 4 is a bit much imo.

I agree, my rule of thumb is usually max of 2 colors and a "base" color, base being black, white or silver.

The only thing missing is a stencil of santa and the reindeer on the side plate. I would send it to a custom painter and have them complete it :mrgreen: :lol:

I'm actually kind of digging the knobs. But I agree with Hog & Cortman -- Replace any gold with purple. But nevertheless, to each their own.. always appreciate your unique style man.
