How do you compare the two reel, I heard just some nice comment about both of them and was wondering if one was far superior to the other ?

Thank you.

Hi. There are a few posts on the Café that discuss "the best reel". Many who own one feel the el duco Swedish reel is the best. Problem is they are expensive and hard to come by. Glykerin makes the reel out of Sweden. They are about $250 plus VAT plus shipping. Expensive but handmade by a very old craftsman.
I have a Swedish reel and a kirkendall reel I may be willing to part with.
I also have a el duco ring flight (has Swedish reel as part of unit). PM me if interested.
