The working title has been "Can", with the classic tuna can reels in mind. The design is classic and minimalistic, but I tried to give it a unique touch with the engraving on the frame and the choice of materials. I have been looking at my favorite reels and made a Frankenstein of them. Bits and pieces from all over the world and the last century.
The size is perfect for 3/4/5wt rods. It's a click and pawl reel with a delrin mechanism, with a plain shaft bearing in aluminium bronze (JM7). There is a fixed difference between pay and retrieve, and it can be turned but needs a LH clicker. The reel foot is also made of aluminium bronze, the frame is made from anodized 6082-T6 aluminium , and the spool is made of PEI plastic. The reel weight is 96g (3.4 oz), with spool diameter 72mm (2.80"), and spool width 17mm (0.66").
