I've had a pair of these for months and just getting around to finishing the first one. Shop is crazy busy as usual!

All of these that Randy has worked on with Tiburon, TN's and TXN's make a really sweet reel. Thanks for bringing them to us RP.

No matter which model and what combination,  ....   stock plates, CC plates, etc., they go together like clockwork and I haven't had a single problem whatsoever.

Custom in house Purple Acrylic knob to match the Purple Frame, Adam F's star and Alan T's handle arm jeweled, 5:1 SS gear set, Alan T's SS gear sleeve, Keta's SS dog and a shop made 5 stack for drags make up the internals. All chrome was polished with 5000G, 3M Trizact.

I'm also working on the T60XN as time allows and its really staring to shape up. This one will have a purple frame, the wide body star, Black plates, and a Custom shop poured, Purple Acrylic and hopefully a few new custom made goodies to round out the build.

Kudo's to Vintage Offshore Tackle and looking forward to the P21XN.

All have a great evening,  ..  Lou

Lou, that knob is the most beautiful thing that I have ever seen on a reel.  Thanks for the kind words about the Tiburon projects, but they are just products.  Your knobs are masterpieces that belong on an art museum!

There have been a lot of great components developed by and for the Ohana, but you have truly raised the bar.

Beautiful reel Lou, the knob and the tooling on the star and blade really set it off. The only problem with the knobs is you don't make enough of them!
One of these days we need a group picture of all your purple reels,that would be something, if they'd all fit in the frame.

That knob is a perfect match Lou, I really like the purple and black combination.

What a reel, Lou!

Thanks for showing us...

Best,

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...

Thanks all for the kind words! I'm really liking this reel and it gets plenty of attention at the shop.

Jeweling was done here Mike. Gives it a bit extra character.

Leave the gun.  Take the cannolis.

 Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat all day drinking beer.
