I haven't told him yet , because it just happened today . He told me the reel was made by someone small from around here in lower mainland hence no brand . The quality of the reel is just too good , also mentioned he paid the guy something like $700 or more for it .
He has one more reel and won't be asking this one back for a little while , he takes too much pride in his reels he put this coat of arms on the reel with his name engraved on it , and took immaculate care of the darn thing . (he even said return it back without a scratch )
Oh man I'm in way over my head on this one
Thanks people !
