This is a personal rod and reel combo made by myself and my friend the reelmaker Anders Schagerström. Anders has been working on this reel for some time, and he sent me this specimen last year. The reel design is made by Anders himself, and I absolutely love it! It's made from PEI in a classic bakelite style. The rod was made by me, and is a gift in return to Anders. The taper is the highly appreciated Epic 686, appointed with a DL bronze alu hardware over turkish walnut with glossy spar finish. Snake Brand Originals in bronze color, wrapped with chestnut Pearsall. Thanks, Anders, for your friendship and skills.
