I was going to take it out today, but I feel like stayin in next to the fire today lol. Fish from the couch.
I still have to practice casting the reel. Its definatly a huge birds nest risk if not done properly.

One question:

How are you gonna palm that reel? It looks like the exposed edge of the spool is still pretty sharp - not something I'd want to try palming to slow the fish' run. Otherwise, that's a badazz setup. Always cool to see home made gear that works.

Yes! Well done! I would love to see a follow up video with you using it in the feild or an extension to that video you posted:clap::clap:. Great Project.

Palming the reel is not a problem. The edges are actually very blunt :) It is open face so the reel is meant to be squeeze braked as well :)

Impressive, do you do your own machining? I liked the part in your vid where you can see the reflection during the spin - pretty cool.

I would machine if I had the tools. I had to take it to a shop for the hub. I free hand mesured and drilled the rest.

It takes a while to get used to the wallace cast, but its a lot of fun. The reel works great! Unfortunatly I birdnested it almost 20 times before I had to remove some line lol.
