No Mike , but they sure look like works of Art.. I think he is now making saltwater versions... I am pretty sure I fondled one at the last show in Marleboro.

Blue

The reason I asked was because I was down at his shop and he made an offer I could not refuse on one of his Large Arbor Salt Series reels. I basically stole the reel at the price he offered me.

I was thinking I will use it on my spey rod. He claims it will hold a 10 line with 200yds of 30. I am going to put a Airflow Multi Tip 9 and 200 of 20lb on it. Should match perfectly if my calculations or correct.

Long rod on the beach you ask? You bet ya!
