Putting the Bad in BAD-AZZ!!!

8 Nov

Well given the machining similarities between rims and reels, it was only a matter of time before someone in the custom bike building / hot rod world came out with a fly reel. And so we now have the Jesse James Reel Company.

1. Do we really need another machined aluminum reel company? Sure, why not.

2. Do we really need spiders on the reels? Need, no. Nice to have, Maybe.

3. Does this model ad any functional improvements to the reel? Probably not.

But you’ve gotta give it to them for going out there and doing it. Competition is where is at, the more merrier. The sluggish economy has many CNC machines sitting with some idle time, and why not put them to work making cool stuff like reels.
