Bob - you sound like a level headed individual.....before we prematurely decide what the reel can and can't do....can't we agree to at least hear from somebody (non affiliated) who's fished one? Also keep in mind there are other pockets which fish Bail-Less reels along the Atlantic/Gulf coasts....that don't use them in the surf....and aren't interested in the heavy resistance.

yep I understand you, I will be probably be fishing one when they release and it looks easy enough to add a seal if i want to.

I noticed on the Penn website the introduction date has been moved up from mid November to second week in October.  Very interested in getting a 2500 & 4500.  OH

Can't wait to see a review of the 4500 bailless...I'd be very interested in getting one...Perfect size for what I do...

Did Penn fix the squashed pinion issue with SSV? I know it failed miserably in Alan Hawk's review. No metal rotor and frame in the world will guarantee you a strong reel if the parts that connect those metals are weak.

What is a "squashed pinion"?
