 Lou has been secretly working on a couple special knobs I had in mind for a couple of my oddball reels.

 The orange jigmaster is my favorite, and leave it to the master to come up with a spectacular knob to go with it, and the dark blue knob is right up there too. Love em both !!


 Thanks a million Lou

I must say, without a doubt, that is one of the best looking Squidder I ever saw. Good job on that knob Lou!
I'm thinking a black spool and clamp might look even better with that orange.

Good Job Ted, did you get someone to strip the finish on that reel and re-anodize it?

Wow, I never thought I'd be able to say it but the Orange one is stunning! It'd be even better with a power handle like the blue one.

Lou --

Those are pieces of art...

You need to find a way to put your name on those -- maybe on the metal shaft.

Otherwise, 60 years from now, folks will still be trying to figure out who made these wonderful handles.

Best,

Orange and black SF Giants colors (although the way they are playing I'm ready to give up on them).  Both those reels look great.  Dominick

Leave the gun.  Take the cannolis.

Very nice reels Mr. M! I think the knob colors go together just about perfectly.  Shocked

Working on a bright yellow ribbon swirl for a customer now. Its a new shape and I didn't think I was going to like the color but its a knockout. Will post it up when complete.

Ted, keep up the great work on these one - of - kind reels.
