I want to appologize to Chris. I had issues with my Photobucket account and it just let me access it. Here are the photos he sent.

Love the job you did Kieth. And once i get some good money flowing i plan on picking up some of those extra reels you have. And i forgot to speak up at your house Thursday. But if you decide to sell that 14/0 let me have first dibs please. We can work something out on it.

I only have one. A 14/0 two speed. I am scared of it myself. I have it in reserve. When I get spooled with a Senator 14/0. I'm bustin' it out! Wink
Everol only makes one bigger. The mighty 18/0. They lay claim that this is the largest reel in the world.

I have fished an Everol 12/0 back this past summer. We nick-named it the punisher as it was a pure beast. by far the sweetest reel I have fished with. just make sure with those big ones that you have a harness on as they get heavy pretty quick.

Actually... no.   Smiley

I didn't want to mention it before, but the 20/0 is now available. It has been in the works for a long time, but in the last year or so Everol has invested in some new (bigger!) machinery and decided to answer to the demand for something bigger. Never mind the specifics for line capacity or drag... it has a LOT of both.

This doesn't detract from the coolness of your 14/0 at all though... The 14/0 is sort of the long time original cult classic monster reel; the one of legend. The real McCoy. Enjoy.
