    Interesting looking reel, but there are so many great fly reels out on the market in the range of $250-$400, I don't see how they are going to make a go with that one for $550.

    I would hazard a guess there is some “collector”value ...but at that price point and below there are many proven reels I would purchasing before considering that one.

    Ages old idea. If u do a search u could see Loop/Danielson made them probably 20years ago. Don't know why some people are so excited about it.

    Looks unique? Probably. Worth what they are asking? IMO not.

    Many old concepts come alive again lately such as the Lamson/Sage center axis.........

    I would have to know how the spool spins on the frame (i.e. ball bearings, plastic/delrin sleeve, etc.)

    These were available for under $100:



    I bought one but don't like it as there is just a big delrin washer for the spool to spin on, no ball bearings, no metal shaft/sleeve.

    Funny how you don't get a $40.00 bearing on a $100.00 fly reel.
