You ought to talk to Smitty at the Rod Builder's Workshop, who stocks them... and an easy drive for you to go inspect them with those discerning digits.

They are really expensive. This is an answer from Vladimir Rachenko and Alex Kaplun: "The retail price range for our Titanium reels from $1700 - $2600"
Titanium is indeed expensive to work with. Ask Max garth in Australia who bought their early megoff reels 5 years ago... they had missing parts...
They look nice, but I rather would by another reel.
Moreover, I suspect them to have posted something about their reels on the Dan Blanton BB two years ago. The problem is that they possibly used my name to do that as I though I would start doing some business with them.

I would stay away from these reels. There are a LOT of good reels nowadays form trusted companies. We are really spoiled.
