I hear all these great things about the reels and nothing to support the claims. Have any of you actually fished it from the surf yet? Does anybody have an in depth first impression/review that isn’t completely biased?

I think we all want to know. Rob hasn't even posted anything since that first small shipment w/the video on how to convert to bailess. But I assume some people must have bought them up...just not anyone on here apparently, besides one member on the Visser thread.

I thought a recall to fix the snapping handles as per your other comments in thread. 

I didn't know there was a recall... Just mentioned the snapped handle.... 

Turns out though they did issue a recall for the handle

Where on Earth are you hearing these "great things?" The reels have barely started shipping.

I'll read Scoobydoo's assessments with interest. And if the reels do well over the next two years, I'll listen with interest. And anything earlier than that is premature.

I think the design is interesting and simple, at least what we have seen from the videos. Lack of info like body, rotor size, spool interchangeability, marketing, and #1 imo quality of materials will be the big factor.

How long before VS buys it?

Rob is a reel guru.

No reason for them to buy it with a new VR coming.
