Id be cool to do a flaked/splatter color. Like base color reel or lets say yellow, then it has green/blue splatter all over it.

A combination of copper and blue would be stellar!


Any other color outside the norm will suffice as well. (Oh, and dont do pink... Purple is what the ladies want.. at least my wife)

I don't know about that, my friend works for Cabela's and they can't keep the shelves stocked with anything pink. It's crazy.

That's because noone has purple...

The only thing purple I can find is an elkhorn rod and they don't have a matching reel. Also, TFO but that is more of a move color...

I also think a burnt orange (or rust color) with olive would make my soon to be Icon look fab

Or a nice polish aluminum/silver color with orange accent pieces, like drag , foot, handle etc. ( basiclly your photo on the page with orange/copper instead of the blue ). Actually thatd look pretty stellar with a gunmetal reel as well.

I think gunmetal that is a slight shade purple would make both me and the ole lady happy

I just want it to be not much more than I" wide. And have a handle that tapers outward to reduce the risk of an errant coil of line hanging up on it.

We have adjusted the width and the handle in this photo is just something we put on. We are working on a new handle as well.

Thanks
