    CNC is a manufacturing process, computer controlled machines work on a piece of metal, or whatever, and finish it to a specific shape, can be expensive bar stock ally or cheaper cast stuff but the finished item is neater, more precise in finish, finer, etc.. depending on the cleverness of the programme written to control the machine.. well. ish..

    Thanks Lepirate, I was kinda getting this from another thread, the manufacturing process has become more advanced. So we should all be benefit from these advances in technology, 20 quid reels being just one example. Will rods be the next example, I accept that many are already being made in Asia. Or are you suggesting there's something we should be wary of ? genuine question.

    I have a couple of specifically Chinese rods (rather than UK/USA branded but made in China) and they are pretty good.. Over the last 10 or so years the quality has been going up. Now, rather than just developing a rod for a western company, the Chinese companies, particularly Leichi Industrial amongst a couple of others, have been doing their own R+D to produce rods, lines and other gear and doing it quite well... To the point the prices are rising for their stuff.. I think it won't be long before they start getting real notice in their own right.. Already they are starting to offer some pretty good guarantees and, from dealing with them, they seem to be very serious in having satisfied customers.

    Many thanks to Minstrel for putting up the link. I bought one on 21st February for 21.55 and it arrived yesterday. It seems well made with no lateral play in the spool.
    Being a curious individual I took the drag apart and photographed it. The pictures are attached (I hope).

    Sorry to hear you've been kept waiting John, I've ordered 3 reels over the past couple of seasons and they've all arrived within 2 weeks.

    I’ve just ordered one for a mate, John , 10 days delivered from Maxcatch ( I used their eBay store ) . See my thread on the Maxcatch Toro . With respect to LePirates description of CNC machining , I’d just like to say that although I haven’t tested the reel as it’s not mine , on inspection the thing is perfectly concentric spool to frame and the end float when the spool retaining nut is finger tight is somewhere between nothing and a mouse’s whisker tip. I won’t be chucking out my Lamson or Nautilus anytime soon as they are in a diffferent galaxy , never mind league . However for anyone looking to part with a nominal sum for a reel I’m a converted sceptic.

    Ordered a hornet green 3/4 wt start Chin new year so took bit longer to arrive 4 weeks
    seems nice bit kit looking at the next size up and for 20+ you could scratch, knock it about then just buy a new one
    Reels in the end just do one thing Hold the line
