Spent the last few days with the previous owner of Struble, Jeff Pentecost, learning the agate guide craft...It's one of those activities that turns from euphoric to indescribably maddening in a nanosecond. We should be able to meet our 9/1 goal, however.
But, I thought I'd let everyone know Jeff brought some components he found in his garage and they turned out to be a mix of double-top-secret reel seat ideas and D27 & U27 hardware machined about 10 years ago.
So, I've got the 27's up on the website now: Hardware & Insert for $40.98. Hardware alone: $28.99.
If interested, they're at strublemfg.com
We should be having some reel seat news ourselves in the next couple weeks or so as we're planning to bring back a couple Struble classics and add a wrinkle or two...So far, our talks with our machinist have left us very excited.
