    Its worth the wait my buddy had to wait 5 months to get his. Its a BA reel. Shimano imho is not in the same class. We have talicas with drags sticking a lot after just one or 2 fish. Low gear needs to be changed out. Antireverse mysteriously nonexistant sometimes. All reels have issues shimano has a great service dept. Okumas service is 2nd to none. Penns ull have to send a pretty far way...

    Sorry about the wait. I want the 12 also. I need mine for October or November, hopefully they will have them by then.

    What’s the difference between the silver and the gold except the color.

    Call whoever you ordered it from. If they know you’re needing it for your trip they might be able to make something happen. I called my retailer to ask about my 16 and he asked if I needed it soon. I’m pretty sure if I needed it sooner he would’ve made it work.

    So you’re not planning on using your 9 foot rod and Trinidad 30 in PV?

    I’m sure Luke can set you up along with the rest of the boat!

    You might want to check with Dana Landing. They may still have some 12 VISXs in stock.

    Hey call Puglia's and talk to Anthony 504-837-0291. They are in Louisiana but shipping is fast, and the best part Penn visx(s) silver 12 is $469 shipped to your door. Can't beat that with a stick! Pm me I have the prices for the Penn's.

    If you don't want to wait get a Mak 15 or 16sea. Both brands are great but if I needed one for a trip and didn't have time to wait I'd pull the trigger and not look back
