Default Rare Ari T Hart Arris prototype reel Number 193

Click the image to open in full size.2.91” diameter in Black and Gold No 193 – not used/brand new. Early 1990. Prototype for Arris reel. We have been advised that the 10 reels, numbered from 190 - 199 were made as samples to test the market re the colour. At this time it had not even been decided where the ATH mark would be because of the lack of space on the reel back, and limited amount on the front spool/reel shoulders, and also, whether it would be a simple ATH or Ari’s signature – it became the latter when they put the reel into production. *Very rare reel made in Holland. Condition A

If you check closely I think you'll find that the reel is called the Aras. Not that it matters but the four letters stand for the first two letters in Ari's name and the first two letters of his wife's name, Astrid. There have been a whole bunch of different models referred to as the Aras by Ari over the years.
