£771 at the moment. Selling today, 28 bids, finishes at 16.11h

Think I'll keep mine, even though I don't fish big waters these days. TBH I find them so good I'd even fish the margins with them! Got four sets of spare spools too, 16 in total, all fully loaded. I am going to keep this thread for the missus. I don't want her to sell them cheaply!

Your right. F.R customs has made spare oscillator sliders (from what I gather are the main weak point) I got a set and snapped mine. Heís selling them for £50 each plus pnp! Bit steep imo but If you need it then it is kind of what It is

I've got three, if I was concerned about spares and decided to sell, what would you suggest I replace with that is still high quality?

They will definitely sell for good money in the end. Only morons and relatives of the seller bid up with days to go!

Sorry I'm being a smart arse but can't resist. In the future everything will be a thing of the past. Just ignore me.

I think in the future that will be a thing of the past.

If someone with some people in the know had a 3D printer they could earn an absolute killing in years to come. People are already starting to fill a gap when it comes to re-casing Nevilles, or producing snag ears for them.

As someone else said, lack of spare parts now if they go wrong.

I had a set and still think they are the best reels I have used but fear of something
going wrong made me decide to sell.
