I'm happy to say that I'm excited about this new Levante line after having the opportunity to fish them. I think guys will be very happy with what they get at the $199 price point in this new series. We'll have the full line at the Bassmaster Classic in Knoxville, TN if any of you TT guys happen to get by there \:D/

I can tell you that there is a possibility more models will be added to the US lineup over time. Not sure if any will migrate from the JDM offerings but I will try to get an answer on that soon.

The F1-63 LVS spinning rod is the one I have my eye on. If it can really cast down to it's lower limit it will be a perfect creek rod for me.

Got my hands on a bunch of these today, and I’m quite impressed! Massive improvement over the first generation. Too bad my pitiful tax return didn’t come this past week, or of have bought at least one!

Really great looking and feeling sticks. In hand, they felt more relative to the XX rods than the previous gen. One difference, though, was the AKLYS felt lighter overall but not as balanced as the XX version. But it wasn’t bad for a 7’10” rod of that kinda power.

I love hearing feedback like that. I think most will be impressed by them. Lot of work went into them.
