Looks like the Metaloid line of reels has been updated. The older models are on sale and the new ones are selling at the original price point.

Anyone know if the new ones are upgraded in any way or is this just a cosmetic change?

Were are you seeing the older models on sale, and where are you seeing the new models?

I went to the West Marine site and the Metaloid reels they have marked as "new" are not the new versions we are working on. I think those are new sizes to their store chain.

Mike,

Thanks for providing the intel. Nice to have someone who works for Okuma responding. Is there anything you can share regarding the new versions that are in the works?
