Very nice those Uslans. I have had several and till have one of them. The uplocking reel seats are a bit unusual. In my experience, the downlockers and bright ferrules are much more common. Nice collection!

Here is a pic of a few more then 3 of a kind although all the CFO's and the two Battenkills are from England. The front row has "several" Bill Ballan reels in it. Also the Sage 506 in the back row is English made of course. I also have a number of extra spools for the CFO's and one for the Sage.
