If it's at ICAST, it is probably a prototype and the shipping product may or may not be too similar in physical appearance. I wouldn't assume it'll look that way. I wouldn't even assume the particular reel has that denim-y texture that it appears to have in the copied photo. This might be a scan from a newsprint-paper photo.

JayR, the image does look like denim. Just a newsprint scan, then - another reason to assume that the product on the shelf will look different.

 

If it come to that, the nice sharp images of the new Daiwa reels on this site look like the reels I saw at J&H the other day, and the Daiwa rep there said that the reels he'd brought were prototypes and productio models were a little different.

remember one thing about Penn for many years Penn was the surf reel to own. it was a reel you could count on .it did the job well and expensive. they were made very well with parts always available at your local b&T. lets hope they went back to the old days and made a product with the same type of inner gears made of the harder metals they use to use.. if so i think it should be a winner. although i love V.S. Penn through the years has always done me right and i hope this reel will be a great product at an affordable price. so good luck.

I hate to judge a book by its cover, but I have to agree--that is one fugly reel. wink.gif

 

Maybe it's just a prototype and the production reel will be toned down a bit cwm40.gif
