Bauer reels have been in development on the RVR reel for more than two years. They started with a groundbreaking and beautifully modern design and quickly found out how challenging it is to machine a reel this complex. No one had ever seen anything like it. The complexity and double anodized design of the RVR would prove too difficult to achieve on a conventional 3-Axis machine, so they sought out the newest 5-Axis machines available. The result speaks for itself.
