Since I found Kinnikinnick's site and worked with this product I have looked no further for reel seat insert blanks or stabilized woods. The colors are vibrant and the grains expressive. I am always anticipating what will appear out of the wood as I turn your materials. My only fear is my wife may remind me I don't need to stock up quite so much, but I find as I look I grab the pieces that look right before someone else does!!Keep up the great work and quality. Doug WebbBig Hole Custom view full testimonial
