Re: Reel Love, the fly reel Picture Thread;
Ard, the Uniqua is sharp! I eyed one of those on ebay but was outbid. I can't remember what the bare Swift weighs but with the 6wt Speydicator (140') and backing it's just under 10 ounces. The original Swift I had was Made in England and had a few small differences; price (higher), sound (louder), handle (not metal), and slightly different drag(indents were audible as I remember). It was the 1025 which has the same size frame as the 1000 but a deeper spool.
