They is a large gap in the lefty market. Lots of guys greasing up old penns or trading used VS and ZB reels. Do you forsee Tsunami stealing the left handed sealed market from other competitors by offered a True Left handed model where the line roller spins opposite?

 

If a true lefty is not made then I dont see a reason for Leftys to jump on board

Is it just me or does anybody see a resemblance to those blue marlin reels?

 

Yes, similar. Looks like Rob got "Robbed".

Who's side are you on. Go lick something. :)

LOL..

 

It makes sense....They'll sell 20x more shields than salt x's

A 5$ increase at wholesale most likely won't hurt nobody :)

 

transfer the savings to the potential destroyer of the market and really get it out there :) 

Introductory price that SOB at 199$  and by the time they dip their toes in for a second....BOOOOM 399$  and its still half the price of a vsx or zb  :)

Every one thinks this about manufacturing but I can tell you from my back ground that’s not always the truth also set up and design are expensive and tooling is very pricey

That less than $150.00 includes above providing the reel(s) sell. It would be a good seller if they priced it at $299.00.

NO DOUBT!

 

I wouldn't be surprised it if cost half that :)

 

And me being me...I not on board 100% that it's a unique reel to them....

Which makes  me think that could easily be the case if made in china.
