View Full Version : ashford vs. kromski

I'm just about ready to buy my first wheel! Yay!

I had my heart set on the Ashford Traditional or Traveler, but now am leaning towards the Kromski Symphony. Anyone have opinions on these? I did read a review site I think Diva posted in an earlier thread, but would love some more info if any of you have.

Thanks!!! :)

I have an Ashford Traditional and I LOVE it! I am very pleased with my choice. I can't really speak to the Kromski except for looking it up online and it "looks" very similar to the traditional. A couple differenced I noticed. It is a double treadle. I have a single treadle traditional...while you can get the traditional as a double I really prefer a single. It doesn't look like the Kromski comes as a single. I would suggest seeing if you could try it out to see how you prefer treadling.

Hope that helps!
