The team at Gamefish were very accommodating in providing a lot of answers to my questions regarding this unique reel. Throughout a number of email exchanges I found this to be the perfect reel for me to combine my Aberdeenshire heritage together with my love of fishing. This will be a family heirloom that I will use to fish until I pass it down. The reel is better than described and while the photos are fantastic, they do not do the reel justice compared to when holding it in your hand. I can't want to land a large fish with it to hear it really sing. Online purchase was easy and straightforward, and the shipping was lightning fast all the way to the USA. I found Gamefish to be very forthright, honest and a pleasure to do business with.
