When I first replied I had never seen one, I still haven't handled one but the pictures posted remind me of the 1980 - 1999 Orvis Battenkill clickers a little. They look like a good deal. If I recall the old battenkill sold for $85.00 so the price is right here. I have landed plenty of fish big and small on a Battenkill clicker size 3/4, great reels.
Actually, I think the styling is a little more elegant than those old Battenkills. And they're made of machined barstock.
