I have been in very limited indirect one way contact with Poita, he’s super busy AFAIK, but apparently doing okay now.
In the meantime, I have a small dilemma. An opportunity has fallen into my lap to purchase a pristine looking reel, alas only one. Due to my recent eye surgery, I’m not in a good financial position to make an offer and I haven’t heard back from Poita or thxita on this yet. I don’t know how long the seller is willing to wait. It’s probably a good idea to keep this on the down low, so if you think you can help with this and want to see what it looks like, send me a PM. Please do not discuss it here.
