Dave McNeese

used to make reels with the classic look. Don't know if he is still in business or not. Anyone know?
Also, I think SaeMaster made a dual mode reel with S handles.

Robichaud

No one has mentioned Dave Robichaud's reels.

He no longer produces, but his trout reels generally fetch twice the original retail on ebay. They a quite beautiful, and some have nifty features like a detachable backplate to get at the spool.

I don't know if he produced any spey size reels (at least I haven't seen one).

I do have a great salmon reel that he produced in low numbers and is terrific for a single handed 8 or nine weight. Now that I think about it, I could probably line it for my 12-4 loop green.

Anyway - classic look similar to a peerless except his counterweight is brass and handle a little longer (I'm told he designed these with glove-wearing steelheaders in mind).

Peter Mann Loop reels

WOW,

Those new Loop reels look awesome. Never heard of Peter Mann before. Pricing might be interesting. The #10-13 size is 5995 Danish Kroner, thats 549 of your british pounds, or 940ish greenbacks!!!

My danish isnt great but it looks like they will have the evotech drag system

Lovely reels.
