Stormtrooper and Bumblebee Pixies!

Post by Fishing4Fun » Wed Aug 28, 2019 9:01 am

Finally finished up a few projects minus the TDZ line guides. Still working on getting a few of them.

1. Bumble themed Pixy. Started with a Pearl Yellow Pixy. I then added 6:8 brass gears and carbontex drag, HH bearings internally. Externally the reel received a swept black drag star, a black cast control cap and a 80 mm swept carbon fiber handle from a Pixy 68 with black knobs and a black handle nut retainer.

2. Stormtrooper Pixy- internally it has the 6:8 gears, carbontex drag, and Boca Bearings and polished internals. Externally it has a ZPI handle, MB Hyper cork knobs, black cast control cap and black star. The paint was done by Calfish I believe.

All you need is a purple/pink "Thanos" pixy and you'll be set! :lol:

What? NO!! When you cast that reel, half the fish in the lake disappear. POOF! Gone.

I wish he was still painting reels. There are a few reels that look great in white and the Pixy is one of them for sure. Good stuff!
