Re: 13 Fishing Concept Z

A lighter spool doesn't always cast further. In fact, the statement I will make is that typically a lighter spool will cast lighter baits better. Agree, a lighter spool doesn't help with distance casting, but what it does help with is ease of startup which helps cast lighter baits easier and cast b...

Re: 13 fishing CZB Bearing

So many questions like What is the stiffness of the material? and can a high drag setting possibly deform the inner bore of the spool bearing? Are these meant to be lubed, or are they self-lubricating/impregnated? Are they subject to gradual water attack/degradation from weathering, particularly th...

It doesn't matter if you own a Left handed or Right Handed Origin, Inception, Concept A, C, E, or KP....in any gear r...

Re: 13 Fishing Concept Z

Something about this new material puzzles me. If the CZB material was so difficult to develop and produce, why is there a conversation about making the CZB bushing or bearing substitute available at a cost of $11.00 to fit other main stream reel brands? Now if that talk is just fluff than so be it....

Re: Merry Christmas 13 fishing. Release date question for the Z

The Concept Z's only come in left handed 7.3:1 ratio. This is the number one selling ratio....Depending on sales numbers of this model, we will determine if we will add additional LH gear ratios in the future. The Concept Z ONLY comes in a deep spool. Cast one, then you will know why. Left Handed Re...

A lighter spool doesn't always cast further. In fact, the statement I will make is that typically a lighter spool will cast lighter baits better. This is a very Japanese(Daiwa-Megabass/Shimano) thought process that has been slowly marketed into what enthusiasts that have been fishing uber high-end r...

Re: Merry Christmas 13 fishing. Release date question for the Z

We started shipping Concept Z reels 10 days ago to select dealers. The bulk of the dealers should have product delivered for published February launch or before. Logistically its impossible for us to supply 2000 dealers instantly, and with the demand of this product line dealers are selling out hour...

Re: New TrickShop Color

The Trick Shop was expanded at ICAST in July, we added quite a few new parts. The Tequila Sunrise color of the Concept Z is a pretty intense paint process, we can't match it with anodized aluminum parts....so no new colors yet, but it looks great with a few of the existing Trick Shop colors.
