Hi Everyone,

I have been looking for Dormisch-Absi and Backwinder Reels for a long time. But the Backwinder doesn`t exist anymore here in Norway. And I am not sure with the quality of Dormisch Absi Rolling Eyes

Is there any fimilar Reels like Absi and Backwinder on the market?
I will combine it with my Orvis Zero Gravity 5 weight line Rod.

Backwinder: http://193.91.240.134/backwinder/


Thanks
Feridun

Good evening, Feridun,

Well, as far as I know I would say that both reel-types are consequent developed and unique concepts. I know that a lot of people went crazy about the Dom-Abs in Germany. In fact I like the straight design, but I think they are not that solid they should be. But an real alternative? Until now, no. I donĀ“t know if you like the design of the Galvan Torque which is different but also unique. The discontinued Guideline Watergrip looks a little like that.

And the only alternative for the backwinder is to have one and then find someone like Megoff who is able to make a 1:1 counterpart.
