    Both look awesome! I bet that reel will be very popular with our local BFT bite.

    I’m buying a 15T for sure, I can’t decide between the silver or gun metal though. Both are sweet looking. But am I the only one that wants to ditch the Tbar handle?

    They’re very comfortable to use. Okuma worked hard on the ergonomics with these reels.

    I have a 15t, 16, 20, 50 all in silver but if they suddenly turned into the new gunmetal I’d be fine with that.

    Black with silver spool looks pants.
    The standard silver and new gunmetal both look great.
    But beauty is in the eye of the beholder

    Yes the original gunmetal is great also but my 7 do vary in darkness a bit ( some variation possibly due to sun and salt exposure) but unbelievable durability and corrosion resistance (zero corrosion on them all) , all are very close to as new condition after several years.
