Never thought I would see the Iron Cross and cobweb theme on a fly reel, but to each their own. I think they will be a hard sell as the $500 market is tough and the market very small! I bet the younger crowd will be more receptive to the style, but they aren't typically the ones shelling out $700 for a rod or $500 for a reel. For that kind of money, I think I'll stick with CCF's!
In fairness, I haven't handled one yet (not even sure local shops have them), but I'm wondering if anyone has a review to share? Website says they're from Anchorage!
