I'm considering buying a new wheel.
I've used an Ashford Elisabeth only until now, so I'm asking what your opinions are on wheels.
Especially after reading through this thread

In two weeks time I have the fortune to be travelling to New Zealand
and I'll be able to visit both the Ashford and Majacraft factories.

So here's my questions:
1.) What has been your favourite wheel to spin on?
2.) What is your all time dream wheel to own?

(the answers don't have to be Ashford or Majacraft, I'm just curious)

I have an ashford traditional double drive single treadle that spins "the smoothest". I also have a Lendrum single drive double treadle that I like, but doesn't spin as smooth. And I have other wheels too, including a Hitchhiker, that are fun to spin on. But I think it's all unique to the actual wheel....some traditionals aren't as balanced as mine, or some Lendrums spin better.
