    Hewes are remarkably better. I loaded Nikkor and various brand reels for nearly thirty years before making the switch. I am completely shocked at how much simpler they are to load. Absolutley better.

    Hewes. Worth every penny. New, if you're in a hurry; stalk auctions of multiple ones if you're not.

    Note that they are slightly taller than nikor reels due to the thicker wire. This can cause problems with some multiple-reel tanks, if they cut it too close based on standard reels.

    Tundra Pro is Hewes and the reels are marked Hewes. Regular Tundra are not Hewes, just regular cheap reels.

    So B&H has a 200% markup on Hewes now? That is if you buy the Tundra ones. I think they still have them listed as Hewes as well for $25...

    Simple, Hewes.
    Thy heart -- thy heart! -- I wake and sigh,
    And sleep to dream till day
    Of the truth that gold can never buy
    Of the bawbles that it may.
