My wife ordered me a VISXS 16 for Christmas and I haven't heard anything about it yet. Any idea how long it'll take to catch up with the back orders?

Bought a VISX16 in october from PO, and haven't received it. I talked to them today and they said end of Jan. Good news is I'm next in line.... or so they say
Mine was ordered through them also. Are they still doing free line fills?

We should be back in stock on the 16VISXS by the end of January. Depending on where your order lays in there is could come slightly before or after. Account for a little extra transit time if you ordered through a dealer.

With 27 different variations in the new VI series, and ongoing high demand, it may be some time before all of them are fully stocked at the same time. If you know the model, size, and color you want, keep an eye here,
http://www.pennfishing.com/penn-reels-conventional-reels-penn-international/
watching for the "add to cart" on the model you want, as opposed to the "notify me". That will mean that all of the wholesale orders for the particular model have been filled. However, some wholesalers [and dealers] only place orders monthly, so they may run out of an available reel in the interim, but won't fill-in the spot for several weeks.

I would imagine ordering 6 at once is going to move you to the front of the line. Most places were out of stock on the 12's and 16's, with a few of the others. I picked up the last 20 on Amazon. My 16 was ordered from Pelagic Outfitters- same as a few other guys here. I knew mine would be back ordered when I told my wife what to get me for Christmas and I expect I'll get it within the next month.

this is getting a little ridiculous. when are reels going to be back in stock on the site? What manufacturing or supply chain issue is causing the delay?
