Finally a look inside.  That is a pretty significant set of changes there.  Looks like a lot of good changes.  That clicker looks to have been beefed up, while new AT setup, different drag/cam setup, etc.  Can't wait to see the schematics, and see that first tutorial.  In particular, I am interested in how the 130, and 80 class reels are built.

You know John there are a few extra 1%'ers that are not mentioned in this video, which make these even a far better long term proposition. The 80 VISW I got to open up is built as solid as a battleship with the internal componentry, huge shaft/bearings. The anodising is of much better quality than the VS Series. I have pictures I intend to post ASAP. There are a couple of "BUT's" I have however. These are arguably just personal observation/opinion things, which do not detract from the overall quality of these reels.

Will try and get the pix up as soon as I get home in a few days time.

This new, and well-planned Penn International product lineup featuring a full array of newly engineered reels. -- is very impressive...
________________________________________________________________________________________

This is a good, solid recipe...

You take a successful product line well proven over decades --

Keep the best of that product line's capable features --

Add into the mix a completely re-designed and re-engineered arsenal to suit big game anglers --

Incorporating some new features we had only hoped for -- and some we hadn't thought about yet --

Offer it in traditional Gold -- along with every product also offered in the more practical silver, not anodized --

Done...
________________________________________________________________________________________

It seems like the launch of a space shuttle mission would be easier and require less planning and listening -- then this major manufacturing endeavor has obviously required.

Penn has listened to the experts in the angling world -- such as many on our site and other sites, Cal Sheets, and others.

They have sorted the ideas and improvements -- keeping in mind quality, capable function, price, market competition, and durability down the road.

I am grateful to Penn and their people -- for their investment & committment to proven quality.

Thank You!

Best,

Fred

“Of course, now I am too old to be much of a fisherman, and now of course I usually fish the big waters alone, although some friends think I shouldn’t. Like many fly fishermen in western Montana where the summer days are almost Arctic in length, I often do not start fishing until the cool of the evening.

Then in the Arctic half-light of the canyon, all existence fades to a being with my soul and memories and the sounds of the Big Blackfoot River and a four-count rhythm and the hope that a fish will rise.

Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world’s great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs.

I am haunted by waters.”

Link to a discussion at BDO with Basil, regarding line capacity of the 30VISX.

 Don't click on to the Washington forum. It's like a TV, watch the channels that you like.

For PNW albacore news, if you don't like BDO, the linked "Salty Dogs" site is pretty good.
