CUSTOM 5″ BIG E Centerpin Float Reel by John Milner (PURPLE)
*All OF OUR BIG E REELS HAVE A BLACK BACKPLATE ALONG WITH A BLACK REEL FOOT, UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED.
The Big E is a custom, hand-made centerpin reel designed and manufactured in British Columbia by John Milner. These fantastic reels are meticulously hand crafted on manual lathes and milling machines. With a three position check lever, the Big E is made form solid bar stock 6061 aluminum, C360 hard brass, and 316 stainless steel. John provides a tough durable finish to his reels by using a process called “bronzing” with his anodizing method.
This particular model has a 5” diameter and is equipped with ABEC 7 bearings. We asked John to make this reel with the custom colors Purple on Black ($50 upgrade) and also a black reel foot to match the frame.
These reels can be fished with either right or left hand, however the check lever position depends on what hand is being used for retrieval. For this reel, if you are fishing left hand retrieve the check lever will be pointing towards the butt of your rod. If you are fishing right hand retrieve the check lever will be pointing towards the tip of your rod. Please see below for more information on this reel.
