Perhaps.  I don't know him, spoke with him only once many years ago (swapped permission to use a photo I'd taken for a VS plier) and otherwise only know him from gossip on SOL. I did NOT know that he's stuck outside the US, which would be a hair-pulling complication for anyone trying to set up assembly here.

How the hell is someone ‘stuck’ outside the US?

Yeah... just sent him an e-mail. Not so happy, but not so mad either. I noticed a squeek last night when i was fishing.

 

I bought this on the 11th of november, so I’m going to go out on a limb and guess this is a warranty issue. 
 

lets see how they take care of me before I leap to judgment because honestly the reel is pretty awesome. 
 

HOWEVER

 

at the moment my penn spinfisher VI is more water and sand proof... 

there is a video on YouTube from “tackle advisor” I think. He had the same issue and in the end they did not warranty the issue. Hopefully it works out for you. Shouldn’t be happening on such an expensive reel that we buy to specifically avoid this type of stuff.

That is my reel in the tackle advisors video, he’s replacing it.

Maybe a global pandemic with travel restrictions had something to do with it? Maybe?

I hope it all works out as it will be good for the community to have a fourth brand out there making truly submesrible reels.   I think at least some parts for Gen 2 are being machined in CT or at least the protypes were.  I strongly doubt RK has been stuck outside the country all this time.  I mean 14 days of quarantine and/or a couple negative tests would get him in, right.

Stuck or not he’s been out of the country.

So did you get the reel?

Does it feel like Love in the form of an egg beater?

Nah not yet, he sent me an e-mail that they are ready to ship my reel on wednesday, and wanted to confirm the color, so I’m guessing next week. I’m not holding my breath it’s been 7 months, a few more days isn’t gonna make me order a zee baas.

It lacks discipline and mechanical fortitude

Please advise us all of your qualifications to make that statement? 
I believe that you are forgetting that this guy has brought “all” of the truly submersible spinning reels to market … I guess he has some mechanical abilities.
