I am taking now orders for the new reel cases. Here is a bit of information about Buffalo leather and why it makes a great reel case.
First off it's a natural material that breathes, a lot like our skin, and releases moisture. Thats a good thing for a fly reel case. The worst thing you can do is have a moisture trap with a classic reel.
Buffalo leather products will not stretch out of shape. As man-made materials are wearing out and starting to look like junk. A leather reel case becomes more supple and rugged looking throughout the years.
One thing comes to mind Durable
The durability of buffalo leather is legendary. It is one of the strongest upholstery materials known to man; its strength and elasticity give it high resistance to ripping. These cases will not pill up over time.
Care Buffalo leather is easy to clean and has a smooth finish and strong fibers that prevent any penetration of sand, sun, or fish slime. Cleaning with a soapy cloth directly after a spill is best. Buffalo leather responds beautifully to annual conditioning. It develops a rich patina over time that makes it your own “antique”.
If you have a speyco reel or any other classic reel that you want to protect look no further. This is the most Affordable well made product on the web, and believe me looked around for reel cases.
The large fits all my 4" and 4 1/4" spey reels. $80
