And I gotta say... I didn't expect them to be as nice as they are out of the box. Yeah I know time will tell and all that. I'll be doing my standard overview, analysis, tear down over the next few days. But damn....turning the handle is not much different than some of the best out there And I say that with a Daiwa Saltist Back Bay 4000 sitting right next to them. Great looking. Great drag knob. Great handle knob options. Stainless gearing, seals. Unique and really nice color choices too. I'm curious if they are available from another company under a different name like the Shield or if it's unique. Doesn't matter either way but curious. Which size should I tear down.

Once again, this isn't a review as I never had them out on the water. Just an unboxing, analysis, and teardown to show what this new series of egg beaters is all about from an un-biased perspective. (even if you muted me you would get a good picture of what they're about) That said. These reels are pretty smooth out of the box. And once run in I'd bet get even better. Though...I don't understand why they would leave the rear end of the reel and clutch of the smaller reels so exposed. When they obviously saw the benefit to add seals elsewhere. Time will tell I guess. For me and my fishing. Would I buy this reel. No I wouldn't. If I bottom fish I use conventional reels. And for other applications where I use spinners in this size range. I don't winch fish it and prefer a more water resistant design. So I can still get years of high performance out of a non stainless gear train, and shave off quite a bit of weight. While keeping water out.
