Thanks for the video. These look amazing and if they're anything like gen 1, they'll be awesome. Really nice touch on the updated details, especially that higher/lower ration on the 40.

A few questions. 15XN? Any additional color schemes planned? I'd be forced to replace all of my gen 1's if black was on the menu.

Couple questions Steve, will the new handles fit the gen 1 reels and can you put the new gen 2 gears in a gen1 reel.
Thanks.

15XN will be available in 2-speed versions only.
Regular and Lefty models.

    Love the announcement, especially the new gear ratios of the 40N. IPT will probably be pushing 50 IPT. Great for us speed jiggers!

    Mike is an important part of BD team.
    Great video Steve.


    ICAST is an amazing rush, with something big going on almost every minute.
    When I heard "The BDO team is ready", it was very much a "hometown" feeling back there in Orlando, and it was great to see them.

    The new 40N is the exact same size as the old 40N.
    The old 60 size is now gone.
    The new 60 size is a "narrow" version of the new 80 size.
    The 80 size is roughly the same dimensions as a 6/0 Senator.
