The line is Bionic Braid, an Aussie braid that works pretty well for us. The SLP handles looked wrong on the reel, until I figured that they matched the line. Apart from the paint, the reel is a standard 100SH 7:1, the lone is 20lb. Now we have to get her some Barra on it in April.

That second batch of pictures are great. I have been debating painting black the old scratched chrome front plates that I replaced on my old Fuego's because they have black handles and black 100M spools. Your wife's reel convinced me to do it.

Very nice. I was wondering who's Zillion that was... I actually got my wife a Scorpion 1000XT painted by Decade Works based off this same color scheme. I'm still waiting to get mine back, but no doubt it'll be gorgeous. I'll post some pictures up of it when I get it. I've shown the progress pictures to the wife and she can't wait to get it. Decade Works does great work and Ian is the man with this stuff, great to work with.

Pam chose an Evergreen Tactics "The Warrior Light" to put the new reel on.

That's not a casting rod, that's an ultra light jig stick. We're heading up to Dundee and Carmor Plains in NT in April so she needs a casting rod.
