I infer that any noncompete agreement restraining Rob Koelwyn has lapsed.

 

Wee bit of deceptive advertising there. The new facility that's under construction will be used for "final checkout before shipping." Sharing a building with a different shop that's equipped with the "latest CNC machines" doesn't mean much if the reels are being made elsewhere, and it may tempt RK to constantly tinker with modifications. Ditch Jigger used to joke about his doing that .... so, we'll have to wait and see.

The machine shop guy is the CFO and partner at Visserreels

Was Rob ever a member here?

RK is a member now, and has been under different names over the years.  He posted on a few VS, ZB and Visser threads in the last few months.

I'll wish them well, but I'd rather wish that the ex-Penn folks at IRT, making reels here, manage to grab a nice fat piece of the luxe reel market.

After the let down with Robs subaqua I'm gonna let you guys test this one.

 

Glad I sat out the Subaqua/VR...............they suck.

 

Wouldn’t even consider a Visser.

We need Scoobydoo and Alan Hawk to tear them apart, and a couple of guys to fish the crap out of them.

 

The site's discussion of the drag arrangement sounds vaguely reminiscent of the claims for dual-drag power made for the IRT DD reels, and for the (soon to be discontinued) Accurate spinner too.  Beautifully pretty web site, though.

On my profile page, this is written in "about me" section, for years.

 

:    Take gearcase oil and fill the reel casing with it.

 

Now I`ve changet it to this : Take gearcase oil and fill the Visser reel casing with it.

 

Because they are meant to be lubricated either with a lot ( hence the level indicator ) oil or standard amount of grease !

Maybe VS will panic and buy this one too?

Their best selling product is a RK design VR now.
