its a brushed aluminum finish clear coated , 700 body , 704 spool and rotor its pretty light for a solid reel . Waiting for the bailess kit in the mail now to complete it . I have a few more changes I'm going to do but I think its pretty nice the way it is

Ironman, you can connect those portals into a slot by hand using a handheld drill, a drill bit smaller than the one you used to drill the portals and a bastard to file the material into a slot. The portals would have to be farther appart than the ones on the reel in the pic.

Yeah I know or a dremel tool to cut in between the holes . But its still will never be as clean cut as a router bit or a lathe and besides I don't really
have any extra rotors lol , maybe I'll try it soon after the holidays . I really admire your work. How much smoother is it with the bearings instead of bushings , is it really worth the upgrade ?

Hmmm, we could fill in every other set of portals and open up the remaining ones into slots. You would have to repaint it though. The reel is noticebly smoother with the added bearings, one good crank by hand and the handle turns over two times by itself.
