Randomly, my parents announced that they want to get me a new wheel for my birthday: specifically Kromski Fantasia. But they wanted to run it by me first, in case there was another style or brand in the same price range that was superior.
To which I went: "Buh?"
And then ran to the Internets. Because I know absolutely jack and squat about the quality of spinning wheels made in the last, oh, century or so. So I'm asking all y'all spinners what wheels you recommend or that I should avoid at all costs?
