I absolutely love the way this guy turned out, more chrome than a '52 Packard. This was a ground-up build, all new parts and no donor reels involved. New old stock Royal 4500 side plates, CS Pro Rocket chrome frame, stainless steel main gear, hardened bronze pinion gear, stainless drag discs, Carbontex drag washers, double bearing idler gear, Boca Lightning spool bearings, straight cut chrome star wheel with a chrome 80mm handle to match, lightweight spool, lightweight line guide, and all of the contact points polished. This guy is built to last and will handle most anything our state has to offer. I think this is my most favorite reel I've assembled, the look of it is out of this world.
