Mike I wasn't sure about the gold when I talked to William because I hadn't seen one in gold. Now I'm sure glad I did, it gives it a rich appearance. Rob

Very good Jim, certainly another OMG reel. Let's see if (in time) Wayne will make one of those l/h 3 1/8" agate l/guard dark grey/silver plate winds I have been assisting and nagging him about..
