 Have seen mention of the 20VISX Extreme in a couple of places on the net. I have not seen a photo, though. Anyone know anything about this? Does it really exist? If so, what makes it "extreme"? Is there only the 20 size or are there others?

We sell 5 different VISX sizes in 2 colors each (gold or silver).

12VISX
16VISX
20VISX
30VISX
50VISX

 The X stands for extreme, it will have an open top frame, designed to be fished braid, steeper drag curve and more max drag than the standard Wide versions.

I have a 20VISX and really like it. Silent dogs, extremely smooth, nice handle and good gear ratios. It's very close to the size of an Avet EX30 if that helps.

 Thanks guys, I know about the VISX reels and will soon get a 16. When I saw mention of a VISX Extreme I thought it was an even newer variant. It seems that the posters were simply referring to the VISX as an extreme version of the VIS.
