TT EXCLUSIVE!! : Daiwa's PX/PXL Type R is Here!

Image

Introduction: Wouldn't you know it? Just as our review of the Japanese Domestic Market (JDM) PX68 goes live, we catch word of some pre-ICAST information about Daiwa USA, and the news is rather significant. The reel we had anticipated for over a year is finally coming to US shores. It's finished differently, has a slightly different name, but from baseline appearances and specifications, it is nearly the same reel. What's more, availability on this reel is not three months out, it's not one month out, no, we were amazed to discover the PX Type R, Daiwa USA's version of the Pixy PX68, is available right now! We've taken this opportunity to acquire an early production model of this reel and compare it to its overseas sibling.

WOOT! Great article. Puts all the speculation to rest. Daiwa hit a home run (IMO) for this "enthusiast" reel. =D>


Now, do I really want to dump my Steez (which never gets fished) and buy one of these :-k ) I do not need this type of stress at my age. :lol:
