    New Ideas and concepts will always be met with lots of scepticism and resistance in a sport that is so steeped in traditional ways.

    Which model?

    Incidentally some of the Ari T Hart guys visited Andy's workshop last year about his work. Ironically not to talk about his reels looking like the Hart's (I don't see any of Andy's models that copy the Hart's btw) but rather something totally different.

    Agreed - thing with this rod is that it is a BIG boy - so it has a very niche market to start with - and Spey being quite traditional will be a tough market to crack.

    Look at the Simplicity from Artic, almost exact copy of one of Ari's reels
