I may have missed, are you doing any gold handles with black Eva?


 Eventually I'll try a gold color, but first I'll be doing the Cortez rainbow colors.

 Getting closer to production mode with every passing day.

 With the culmination of the design process complete, I am now able to figure my "per unit" cost.

 Complete blade/knob assembly will be less than $50.

 Here is one of the first prototypes

  The first batch of blades are engraved with a BFT (blue fin tuna). Each batch will have a different fish.

We sure have a lot of talent on this site -- in so many different areas.

Great work, Ted --

Form, function, and efficiency = simple & effective.

Plus, very attractive.

Best,

Before first light — with nothing less than wonder, and humility — I scan the cool, dark waters for the coming horizon — and the hope of what that deep unknowing might hold for me today...

——————————————————

Nothing happened. The fish just moved away slowly and the old man could not raise him an inch. His line was strong and made for heavy fish and he held it against his back until it was so taut that beads of water were jumping from it. Then it began to make a slow hissing sound in the water and he still held it, bracing himself against the thwart and leaning back against the pull. The boat began to move slowly off toward the north-west.

Santiago knew what he was in for, his lifelong experience had prepared him...

 The knobs pictured before with split eva were Pro Gear knobs. Sorry for the confusion.

 All my knobs will be one solid piece of eva or similar material

 It's pretty easy to swap out the grips on a pro gear knob. I have some black material that will slide on over the end button on the pg knobs

That looks awesome! Can't wait to hook my reels up with those puppies. Love that the spindle is anodized as well.
We appreciate you taking the time to get it perfect before you put them out for us.
Yeah baby!
