thanks for the help guys- Mikepa informed me that River's End in Old Saybrook carries them to, they are the closest, i'm going to pick one up over the weekend.

 

Anyone use the kit yet?

Have it on my reel, seems to keep the reel balanced. Although with the bail does seem to have a bit better balance only noticeable when you spin the handle very fast. The biggest problem is the reel spins when you cast and sometimes catches the line roller especially when windy. This can be prevented by cocking the line roller back as you would with a regular bailed reel. Going to grease it up a bit more to slow it down when I get a chance.

I've had the same problem as fisher but I have tried to hold the rod a little further up so I'm farther away from the roller. Overall I love it. Its a very smooth reel and the drag is very powerful and smooth.
