Was just a matter of time….good to see this. I’m waiting on pricing for these, the 34mm spools and some other items.

I haven't brought inventory in on them, yet. I've gotten a few for friends to try out/beat on and have gotten nothing but positive feedback on performance. I'm not surprised. Tsuyoshi really knows what he is doing and has always delivered. I'm just not crazy about the aesthetics and the platform they built on, but... If they upped their paint game and got rid of the oversized logo on the palm plate, I believe they'd sell VERY well. After all, everything else about the reel is ZPI, so what's not to like. I will most likely bring a small amount of stock in to test the waters here in the next few months.

I’ve just been so impressed with the Zillion lines, since the 10, I don’t know if I would pick one up at this time.

I have to agree with ya, at least on the 21 Zilly. Daiwa has done a good job of refining the T-Wing Zilly variants since their introduction. This last iteration is pretty much all win, and IMO, puts it close to the Steez in the performance department. Very impressed, but I'd really like to help ZPI out (if I can) bring awareness to their reels. I feel a thorough review of the Alcance needs to happen and that they probably perform close-to, if not on par with current offerings in the same class from the Big 3.

Long overdue that I grab one and see whats going on.
