Hi,

 

Has anyone come across one of these yet?

 

https://www.maunvalleytackle.co.uk/

 

They are made for them by Garry Mills. I was interested till I saw one (ebay) with all the screw heads 'mashed' like my Avon Perfection. Really needs to get the right sized driver for the slot or someone less 'cack handed'.

 

Lovely reel but for near £400 I would expect a bit more care.

All,

 

The web site says "we" [designed].  Is  Ian Rotherham a known celebrity in the world of coarse fishing?  I have seen the name Gary Mills previously although not as a master reel maker.

 

​I agree, compared to other centrepins you pinheads post it appears rather clunky.  But then just how many centrepins are made to handle 20lb pike?
