I was just at Maurice's place last week. You should see the Spey reel he had just finished... over U$S2,000! Titanium everything: body, plates, serpentine handle. Three pad breaking system. I toyed around with it 8-)
The trout reel is a new one for him. He built it to my specs and it is the first one in that size. He still hasn't set a price for that line but I'm sure it won't cost more than an Abel. Why he would want to build those when he can sell traditional and spey titanium salmon reels, I don't know. As it is he's swamped with orders.
Matt, if you want to read a bit more about him, go check under chronicles and you'll see a piece I wrote about him a while back.
