Negative on the OEM comment. The goal was to have a similar external resemblance of the Shield. 

 

Any chance you could give an approximate weight on the 4000?

 

Yes, I’m thinking VR50 alternative.

What the hell is a stainless steel face gear? Is it a solid stainless gear or some kind of stainless steel laminate? I don’t like the sound of it.

The face gear is another name for the main gear and yes it’s a sold stainless gear.

Gear shaft and gear held together by punching the metal gear shaft flange?

Looks interesting, new stuff coming out a breath of fresh air. not the Rocky l ll & ll reels that a big company has been putting out lately. Should of start with 3000 size.

Awesome gear. What's the ETA on the reels? Hopefully fall?

Trying to keep in in the 300 to 400$ range

 

They better keep it closer to $300.00, and MAYBE they will have a chance at doing some volume with these reels.

 

Im not a fan of the VS VR, but if Tsunami prices this new reel closer to the $400 range, most guys will spring for the extra 100 bucks and buy the more well known, and proven VS.

Looks an exciting  reel.

i have a question for johnyacht if i may, slightly off topic but would the spool on a tsunami guard 3000 fit the shield 3000 ? Are they interchangeable?

Spelling.

If this reel works as noted VS and ZBass will take a Big Hit.

John,

 

If you want them to sell keep price under $300.00.
