But I just finished paying for the items you recommended 2 months ago! Oh well, not to keep on buying would be very un-American during these trying times anyway!!! Keep on sendiing! (I posted just to get the mailings.)

The Stella SW was scheduled for OCtober but this was supposed to change. I'll have more details next week when everyone is back from the show.

The TYR8II was designed to be a small, lightweight and powerful two speed reel. Here on the west coast the small two speed reels have been gaining popularity. We use a lot of braided line and a small top shot of heavier line (40-60). Perfect for jigging, live name it. We added the 8 and 10 to the line up to offer small reels with lots of power. Light and small is in now for offshore use.

All of our reels are approved for use in saltwater. The Stella SW is designed as a dedicated saltwater reel. The mid price point reels can be used in salt safely.
