The side plates are made of Delrin and the rings of highly polished 6061 grade aluminum. 3.20" diameter and 0.80" inside spool width. Best suited for 5/6/7 weight lines and backing. The reel weighs 8.95 oz.
Don't miss out on this opportunity to acquire one of the first reels Todd has dutifully crafted for fly fishermen and women who desire the best of the best in classic-style handmade fly reels.
