Well you have done better than me. I tried to buy a JAF reel and could never get a response to an email.
I would be interested in your opinion


It was from ebay, about 50 inc postage. It's in the post now, I should have it in a week or so. I'll let you know what I think when it arrives. It looks ideal, but it is a bit of a leap of faith...
And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music

Well the reel arrived and it really is tiny! There's enough room for about half a standard 2-weight fly line. It's a recipe for serious line memory cos the drum is so narrow so I'll reserve judgement on practicality, but it's a beautiful little object and looks at home on the short rod. The whole outfit is virtually weightless, and the rod pulls round into almost a complete circle - it's going to be interesting!
