  MASTERY SERIES - SILVER PARADIGM  


The Sumptuous SILVER PARADIGM

The Silver Paradigm is the new version of the highly successful Black side Custom Paradigm Reel. The beautiful sides are made of polished alloy 752 Nickel Silver.
A truly elegant reel is reminiscent of the great Kentucky reels of the 19th century like the Talbot Ben Hur or the pretty little Meek reels. These silver reels are a joy to make and opportunity to partake in the old tradition of fine metal work in reel making.

  CUSTOM PARADIGM DRAG SYSTEM  

The Smooth as Silk Drum Drag System

The Design harkens back to the original Kovalovsky salt water reel drag design and much later the Bogdan salmon reels. The Spool drives the large drum which is 'braked' by the two cork lined outer shoes. A circular spring controls the tension on the shoes. This is an exceptionally smooth drag and completely adjustable so much so it can properly handle 7x through 1x for limestone trout on up to silver salmon. This is my original, first design and it has performed magnificently

I have "vast" experience with this drag system first designed for the Godfrey Salmon Reels back in 86! My first trout reels used this design were the Custom Trout Reels in the 90's. These early reels have been supplanted by the classic style Mastery Series Paradigm Reel now in production for over 20 years.
