My wife tells me I'm too predictable. :big grin:

Noticed it...priced it...might very well want it after reading the glowing review.

If my memory serves me correctly, tequila sunrise is a color that is more of a black and purple. At least that is the color of my Charlies Worms anyways. This color looks more like a orange to me.

I'm thinking of the drink, and the Eagles' song.

As expected it is just hype around this reel with nothing to it...

Got one of the 6.6:1 reels from TW, and I don’t think it’s all hype. Is there a lot of overhyping it in videos online? Yes. True the reel doesn’t magically outcast evertything, in fact i’m finding it very comparable to a lot of other reels costing as much or 50 bucks more, which in itself is good considering we are talking polymer bushings here. The fact it even competes is sweet, and if it holds up its a winner.

I do agree overall it isn’t blowing my mind but like the preview article said it does feel different, both on cast and retrieve. I am finding it quiet and consistent, but better with the heavier baits 1/2oz. and above. Going to grind on it some more this weekend but so far it’s fishing good and lots of fun to fish for two bills. Between the Curado K and this reel right now I feel like the Curado K is the more solid and well rounded reel tho. But I do like the color, it’s def a conversation piece.
