Had a look today and the torque spinning is no more on the site. it was there for the last 6 months and if you clicked on it it took you to specifications page. what gives?

Received an email from Penn last week about this reel. They were supposed to be out May 1 if you remember. Basically they are still tinkering with this reel and was told it would "be out soon". I guess Penn doesn't want to give anymore release dates. I would not be surprised if another year slips by for the bailess version.

Maybe they are using there heads and are listening to the complaints on look, line lay ect and tweaking the design ... last thing you want is to come out with something people don't like in the initial stages...

I have to agree. The Last thing they want or need is to have a failure.

Their whole reputation depends on this reel. If it's good it will go over well,but if it's bad they'll be no 2nd chance.

 

I wish them well & we need a good water proof reel.

 

I think they are smart taking there time & working everything out.

 

Hell we waited this long what's another month or so.

 

I think everyone of us has owned a Penn at sometime in our life & some still do. Penn is the reels we grew up with

 

I think it's time to show the industry just what they can do.

The only have this 1 shot to make it or brake it!

until you click on one of the three models to add to basket....then it says they are on "Backorder"

 

Still have the pics and description up though...in case anyone was curious what it looked like.

Disagree. ZB were and are amazing reels and the people behind them are honest hardworking and sincere. any product has a few lemons and Wendy at zb took care of that handful of reels that had minor problems.

My hunch -- and I need to stress that this is my own guess, and that I have no connection to anyone involved -- is that the tweaking they're giving the Torque is significant enough that the appearance of the reel will change noticeably. If the reel is gonna look different, it makes sense that they'd yank the pictures from their website: they don't want to be showing pictures that don't quite look like the reel they'll be releasing.
