NOTE: Machining Titanium is no small feat. These New Reels were handmade using a combination of cnc and tools, room lathe work. Forever these reel can be reconditioned to look new. Scratches and abrasions can be sandblasted and polished to look new. Aluminum though lighter must be anodized to retard oxidation. This is the most advanced material for making a reel. Very difficult to machine and eats tooling like no tomorrow. Doubtful that a reel could be made any better.

All reels come standard with an A&E Nelson handcrafted reel case with synthetic sheep skin lining.
