I’m thirsty for more info on these, especially the dark sleeper. Already thinking about which rod(s) to sell to pick one or two of these puppies

Summer time frame is what I heard
Thanks. Hopeful for U.S. distribution. Perhaps, late summer/early fall here if there is U.S. distribution. [-o<

+1. The Dark Sleeper has become a go to technique for me and a rod dedicated for that sounds awesome. A few of the other models are intriguing as well... :-k

Same here! If so, pre-orders will be available as usual from TT. I'll keep everyone posted. I definitely like the look of these :D

Great! I "need" a few of these in the arsenal. Would much rather prefer ordering from TT than overseas.

Those are new additions to the Japan series Destroyers. There has not been a decision made yet as per them being added to US catalogor not. If it is decided to do so I will post it on this thread.
A shame if they are not. Would love to have The Dark Sleeper and another model or 2.

Any word on release dates in Japan?

I will find out.

Thanks Mr. Perry 8-) Some of those handles look like potential bigger bait sticks, any bones to drop me there? :big grin:

I will try to chase down a full lineup listing and the estimated drop date for Japan on them. If They allow me to share the info publicly right now I will.

We are ok with non-public info as well. :lol:

Hopefully, some U.S. distribution is in the works too

That casting seat is ugly. It looks like the old Zebco Rhino rods.... :sick: :sick: :sick: And I think someone said it already, but that spinning seat is identical to the Phenix Maxim spin seats, apart from paint color. Not a good look on either imho.
Try not to let your mind wander. It is much too small to be outside unsupervised.

I can confirm that select new models will be available in the US. Trying to nail down a hard release date. I will also post the models selected when I am cleared to do so.
