Fin-Nor came out with their direct drive "Wedding Cake" fly reel in 1967 and McChristian decided to shift gears and produce an anti-reverse fly reel for anglers who preferred that style of reel. His first model was dubbed the "S Handle" reel and it came in both a Salmon and Tarpon size. Later McChristian redesigned his anti-reverse reel and added a Marlin size to the line-up.
McChristian then developed a direct drive fly reel and produced them in five different sizes: "MARK I" - "MARK II" - "MARK III" - "MARK IIIW" - "MARK IV". Bob's last design was a dual-mode fly reel which could be fished both as a direct drive reel or an anti-reverse reel.
