The colored spools are plastic, right? If so, why would that be an enhancement for a reel designed for mono., with the stretching potential of mono. possibly breaking the spool?

   That's the million dollar question G. I'd say the stretching debacle wasn't figured out until they all loaded up their shiny new Monofils with brand new mono...oh that horrifying crunch...oh the humanity. Grin

Here are my 3 monofils. I wish I had a nice Lipstick colored one as Col called it but there cool. I only have rods for two of them also all chrome spools as colored spools are to wide for these cradles.   John Taylor

Wow John those are really something. It looks like the cradles have a "trigger" on them. Do all the neptunas have that and I just never noticed?

Very interesting way you built those rigs. I never thought of mounting the colored monofils into those sized frames. I suspect your coloramic Neptuna combo rigs are the only ones in the world done that way.

Not all, only the smaller models. Jigmaster Neptuna cradles have the trigger casting as do these small reel cradles, but the 49 / 349 and larger cradles do not have the trigger cast into the cradle.

Thanks for the complements !! Only ones in the world Very rare unless you have a small Nep-Tuna frame and you put a colored Monofil in it that would bring the price of these rare combos down quick !!  Lol !! I bought the maroon one that way and added the gray and green thought they looked cool !!    John Taylor
PS Gonna ask Dom if I can buy the red 9/0 Senator for another 9/0 cradle I have now that would be RARE !!!!

As always, John pulls out the  beautiful, impossible to finds that we all dream of. 
PS- if I decide to sell Big Red some day we can talk. It sure would go to a good home with great company.
Really sweet nep-tunas!
