This new reel comes with a ton of "Hyper" marketed features and we take a deep dive into the reel's new design and performance to see if just how well the new reel stands up to all the hype.

Handle length on the models we have are the same but the US model knobs are about 25% larger... specifically longer and a little wider at the end on the US model.

I can't wait to get mine from TTT. I hope I actually get to go fishing a couple times this year.
