Good to know, havent even checked the Japanese sites for them yet. All I heard was the rumor that the USDM price could br around $700 and that made me nervous

It's quite possible it will be priced at $600-700 considering Digitaka us usually 15-20% lower than US prices.

TT should do a 1 day contest with users guessing the price. Correct price picks go into a hat and get a prize.

Let's look at some numbers, Diawa Retail vs. TW Retail: For the sake of comparison lets assume the exchange rate is $1=100Y and I will ballpark my %.
Steez A: 46400 Y vs $499 (+7%)
Steez SV TW: 59500 Y vs $549 (-7.5%)
Ryoga 1516: 56300 vs $599 (+6%)
Steez CT SV TW: 58800 vs $??? ($699 would be around a 20% premium)
I think based on history, the price is going to land at $579, $599, or if they follow the way of the Ryoga $629
If I had to pick a number it would probobly be $599.

Whatever the US price, you will be getting screwed if your not buying from a JDM source. Warranty/Shmorranty..

I'm fairly confident you will both be rather disappointed. Just source it from Japan

I think they're calling it a Morethan PE.

If only it had Magforce 3D, I would be selling off some stuff to buy one!
Try not to let your mind wander. It is much too small to be outside unsupervised.

Oh, well, that's true. Forgot about that. :doh: That's why I won't part with my T3's.

How often do you or others actually use the 3D settings? Just curious, cause mine never leave the all around.

I adjusted 3D for a fishing day. Several times I had a clear idea what’s the brake profile on different combinations. And then that idea disappeared. And then I got idea again. Then I decided that ‘All around’ is just good. Now I don’t have reel with 3D. And have to say, I’m not missing it. But of course there’s no harm if would be in mine reels. If I don’t like reels braking profile, then I change reel, or spool or tune up inductor.

I remember one day fishing ahead of a thunderstorm. The wind suddenly got gusty, and the T3 MX I was using suddenly backlashed as I faced into the wind. I picked it out, clicked the 3D dial once and never had another problem with the wind. Plus, I didnt notice much difference in casting distance. It is/was a valuable tool. Too bad Daiwa did away with it.
