I believe you're looking for the Cavalla line up. It's available and you can see the info about it on their web site. I have a 12 and it looks like a very nice 40lb reel, have to wait till I hang a fish on it

Cavalla is the replacement for the Metaloid.
Andros replacement was announced to be coming out early this year.

The Cavalla replaces both the Metaloid & the Andros. That was my understanding after talking to Okuma.

Alejios I believe.
I know absolutely nothing about it.
Yes I have heard that name mentioned more than once.
Cavalla is definatly just replacement for metaloid. Very similar reel to metaloid, but spur gears, metal drag quadrant on the 5 ( metaloid had plastic on 5) longer nicer handle, right hand side plate made a different way,( I believe). And a different color of course with an enhanced surface corosion protection treatment.
Of course sometimes planned introductions don't go ahead on time, but I expect to see an andros replacement with the andros duel force drag, anti reverse bearing in a single speed, more bearings than the 4 in the cavalla, and omission of the friction cast control, Makaira gun metal colours would be nice.
My guesses and wants only
Regards Gary

Thanks for the snippet, looks similar to Tesoro matted finish.
Can’t wait to see it.

I got a chance to use the Allijos 16II on my 5.5 day trip with Marla's sport-fishing out of PV this last week. They use them for 60lb and 80lb and Danny claims they have taken cow tuna on them. I own a Andros 16II and the reel feels and looks almost identical to that reel except for the gunmetal finish and Makeria style handle. I am sure the internals are a little different, but I would need to see the specs.

Cavalla replaces the Metaloid, not the Andros. The Alijos is arriving in a few weeks for us to field test. Very unique additions.
