.Selling some of my reels. Check them out HERE


* (30 July 2021) Had an initial look inside the 2021 Spheros SW-A; body has the same improved full sealing of the Saragosa SW-A, it now has two ball bearings for the drive gear, and the drive train is the same as the Saragosa's. As usual, drag is less capable than the Saragosa's, no backup stop in big ones, and this time the line roller of the Spheros runs on synthetic bushings. Considering the reduced price, this could become the new bearer of the title "best value of all spinning reels", pending real life testing and performance verification of course.

* (24 July 2021) A major fishing show just wrapped up and a number of new reels that were exhibited are on their way to me right now. First such deliveries in almost two years and couldn't be more childishly excited!! Hoping that soon action will get back to pre-pandemic levels, although flying to fish remains as challenging as it's been since that apocalyptic event began.

* (5 July 2021) Hope you've enjoyed the preview of the 2021 Spheros SW-A for the past 8 days now that the official announcement is coming within hours. Saw the price sheet for the USA and it's ridiculously cheap ranging from $140 for the 5000 size to $200 for the 20000. Considerably less than the 2014 generation whose 5000 sold for $200 and its 20000 cost $260.
