Why unique. Well, I fitted the Salmon 2 spool with a new moondog and gear from a SILEX !! The reel is now quiet on the way in, and *Hardy Scream* on the way out. I'ts been fished only once. No war wounds, only some light scuffing on the exposed shiny rim of the spool...the result of the retrofit of the Silex bits. I have a new e-mail address if you are interested: email@example.com
PS: Very Important: RH CRANK, same as the Silex.
