The Total Eclipse finish

The Total Eclipse refers to a rather special two-tone finish which can be applied to any of my centrepin reels. The Total Eclipse finish is very occasionally applied to individual reels at my discretion. This styling produces stunning and unique centrepins which have become very desirable and sought after.

Consisting of a pewter grey anodised backing plate, foot bracket and line guard, combined with a naturally polished spool fitted and two-tone horn handles – they look splendid.


All my range of centrepin reels can be supplied in the Total Eclipse style.

REEL SIZE: Dependent upon reel model
LINE GUARD: As above
RATCHET: As above
HAND: As above

All reels are supplied with a heavy cotton embroidered draw cord pouch and dropper bottle of Chris Lythe reel oil.


The Total Eclipse style of centre pin is not a limited edition reel and is still in production by Chris Lythe Centre Pins.

As of February 2021, my order books are full and therefore closed for a short period of time. Once current orders are full-filled, I look forward to taking orders again, hopefully in Autumn 2021.
