VERY interesting reel.

The semicircularity of the large cutout on the rotor's side perfectly complements the body's roundness.

The rotor's simplicity is marvelous.

It looks like it was stamped from a sheet of titanium and then formed.

That's how I'd do it.

The Fortitude's body and stem evoke the Crack.

That's correct. Are you a manufacturing engineer?

I find it hard to believe that price ti is $$$$$. Hardy fly reels make a ti reel that's like 10000

Titanium isn't that expensive per kg.  The machining would cost well more than the amount of material used.

No Alan.

I'm a self-taught designer and machinist.

The Okuma Trio's rotor also looks like it was stamped from sheet metal and then formed:
