Steve. Are the frame on these cast or machined? The lever itself, what material is that. Tia


Frame is diecast aluminum, same as the Gen1's, just painted silver instead of black.
Drag lever is plastic.

When will these ship Steve


A small shipment went out to some dealers last week, only size 15XN, 25N, and 30. Selling fast from what I hear.
Larger sizes like 40N, 60N, and 80 probably not until late November at best.

40n or 60n for deep bluefin jigging? Looks like the drag capability was increased from the older model


Both; you just need to decide what line capacity suits your needs.
40N drag is the same, although gear ratio is increased on the "High", and decreased on the "Low".
60N is a new size, essentially just a narrow version of the 80, so its got a larger drag surface.

I keep trying to see if the 40N lefty is in stock and it’s out everywhere online.


None of the 40N's have arrived yet.
Not positive, but it is likely that the larger sizes won't be here until late November.

    Any chance you have a picture of the lineup side by side?
    @cooper669 here is the 60NLD2 and 40NLD2. I’m holding the 60N. I really dig that reel. Great low on it too
