CUSTOM 5″ KINGFISHER Centerpin Float Reel by John Milner (BLUE)
*All OF OUR KINGFISHER REELS HAVE A BLACK BACKPLATE ALONG WITH A BLACK REEL FOOT, UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED.
The Kingfisher 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 Kingfisher 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 Blue 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 clicker knob position depends on what hand is being used for retrieval. For this reel, if you are fishing left hand retrieve the clicker knob will be pointing towards the butt of your rod. If you are fishing right hand retrieve the clicker knob will be pointing towards the tip of your rod. Please see below for more information on this reel.
