Nice reel, it looks like he did a great job with the anodizing! Those paint ball gun blokes have made dying anodize a real art form.

   If people knew how tiny the scratches and dents really are on Alan's discounted Jiggy kits he'd be out of them in a few days. My 501 still has the original anodizing and you have to turn the reel to just the right angle to even see the tiny scratches.  Cool

While it needs a Sal handle let me say that’s one bad ”tooshy” reel you’ve created.
Simply beautiful to these eyes.
Thanks for sharing,

Yeah, It is kind of cheap, but little profit is good enough for me. The scratch n dent kit is $135 that will include one piece frame, right side plate, ball bearings, bearing caps, rod clamp and side plate screws. $190 will give you that kit and a spool. If I had the name as good as Tiburon, I could charge way more. But, I am cool being a little guy.

Tiburon doesn’t offer two piece kits.

"Scratch n dent" was never an issue, very minor.   Weak excuse to help justify playing with refinishing.  I was planning to try it with one of my reels and just picked this one.
Considering spooling with 60 hollow, 40 top shot and using it for SE Alaska Chinook and Halibut.  Would love to do another San Diego trip sometime as well, the only 3-day'er I went on was awesome.  The 40 lb range yellowfin pulled like locomotives compared to what I'm used to but I think this reel would do well.
