The Zeppelin pushes the boundaries in what can be achieved in precision engineering. This 3D reel is only possible with state of the art CAD/CAM design software and multi axis machining centers. The spool is perfectly balanced in all planes and due to the unique design it feels strong, balanced and smooth. The Zeppelin is offered in 4 stocked and 4 colors on demand (see below) If you are looking for full customization we also offer this service.
HAND RELEASE SPOOL CAP=No clumsy tools or awkward coins to get your kingpin spool off. This ergonomic finger release screw works and looks just the job
Pay attention to how the spokes of the spool concave in the middle. This is the same on every plane giving the reel a completely bridged design which makes it 5x stronger than anything else available
Check the slot-less handle axles out that hold the hand polished handles in place. These are made in house along with everything else on the reel. You will notice that a lot of the reels on the market use 'of the shelf' general purpose screws, including the 'handmade' reels!
The slots we mill into the inside of the drum where the lines lays really emphasis's the precision milling. Making them 3mm in width is much harder and more time consuming. Most reels have no slots but the ones that do are not like this!
