"I have been using Ashford wheels for more than thirty years and still have my first Traditional. Many thanks for providing such long lasting, reliable equipment!"
- Kevin McNaughton, London, UK
"I have been spinning on Ashford wheels for 28 years--from my first day of spinning--and have a Traveller and a Traditional wheel. And in all those years I have still never seen any wheel as graceful as your original Traditional design, elegant and functional and solid. It is a pleasure to spin on it".
- Shelley Carda, Tucson, Arizona,USA
"I thought I'd share this with you for obvious reasons. Two people I know in the past three weeks have bought old Traditional wheels and after a little tlc and oil, both wheels have a momentum that you would swear was from ball bearings (which I can say they don't have). This is testament to Ashford's build and design and still makes the Traditional a valued and sought out spinning wheel by both beginners and experienced spinners. Where would we be without Ashford's?" - Philip Driscoll , UK
