Those germans can be amazing sometimes. I was once told that many years ago the Brits invented the finest needle ever,so thin and fine you could hardly see it with the naked eye.So they wanted to impress the Germans and send them one to show off. Well the Germans needless to say were so impressed that they drilled a hole right through it and send it right back.
I know the reels you are talking about Max and wonder why the handle is inset rather than being on the edge of the spool. Almost defeates the purpose of having such a large spool and I can only assume that reeling a spool that is too big in diameter may be just as fatiguing as reeling a 3" spool.
