T.F.M. Spotting - Inside Ross Reels

Last year I sent a stack of T.F.M. decals to Geoff Samples of Ross Reels to spam the factory with.  Recently Geoff sent a couple photographs from his iPhone of where these decals have started showing up.

Geoff wrote... "T.F.M. Spotting in the Ross Reels  "handwork" department.  Handwork is where all Ross aluminum parts (frames, spools, and drag knobs) go to be tumbled to create the smooth finish on all Ross reels.  This is the final stage before the reels go through the color anodize treatment."

How they all begin their journey in becoming a fly reel made in the Ross Reels factory in Colorado.

Geoff...thanks for representing T.F.M. at Ross Reels.  I am looking forward to seeing where the other decals end up.
