Any Idea when the 400s low gear will be shipping? I placed my order w J&H in August.. I have a trip mid December and I’d like to know if it will be in my hand by then.The Lefty reels will ship last. The lefty 400X reels will ship before the lefty 400. I do not have an exact timeline for those at this time, but they are in the works.
It matters in the sense that instead of the drag distributed on 1 side and having the heat concentrated in a small space, having both sides allowed the heat to dissipate better.There is a drag washer (19,20) on each side of the main drive gear(24). That is their claim to difference between normal star drags.
It's all on the same key'd shaft(26) though. So, I'm wondering how it really matters. Force is Force of Course. In the Moment, it's still a Moment.
But what do I know. They make lefty so I am still very interested.
Jumping the gun a little no? I've had a Fury 600 2-speed for 2 seasons and it has not required any more maintenance than any other reel I've ever owned. Oh and by the way, the maintenance is at no cost for 2 years, who else offers that?Geez, you would think this reel is the greatest thing since sliced bread. I think there will be a number of dissapointed people once they start using these reels. As a former owner of many Accurate products they will discover that they need a extraordinary amount of servive.
