I received my D.A.M. Quick reels that I sent to my friend Lionel to perform his fantastic talent with a milling machine. The reel models are a 220, a 331 and a Super 270. I hope you guys will enjoy the pictures as much as I enjoy having these reels. I will treasure them and am so pleased with the results. the reels are as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside. The 331 and the Super 270 have aluminum spools so they were drilled out, the 220 was plastic so it was not drilled. He polished all the inside parts. Lionel replaced the bearing in the 331 and hand crafted brass bushings for the reel. Now it is smooth as silk. The paint on the 331 was chipped so he glass beaded it. I don't know if I will paint it later or leave it as it is. I think it looks cool the way it is. Lionel told me he had a reel he blasted and he keeps it coated with gun oil and it stay looking good.The paint on the 220 and the Super 270 was good so we left them as is. He made new custom handle knobs for the 331 and the Super 270. I don't know if I should call them DAM Staals or Van Quicks but I know they are without a doubt DAM GREAT! Thanks Lionel!!!
