Really hoping the coronavirus doesn't cause a delay in the release of these rods. Sounds like its taking a severe toll on Asian production
Looks like its going to take a toll world wide, its just a matter of time.

Be safe out there and try to avoid others....

This sucks
I work in NYC and they just closed my office. However, my fiance also works in NYC and her office remains open with no work from home options :(

It's definitely a bit alarming. Hopefully in another few months we'll be able to move on.

Wonder how hard it would be to get that F7.1/2-90X ICBM Lake Biwa Long Distance Edition shipped to the USA. Hope the handle is a breakaway :D

We just got a statement yesterday regarding safety and cleanliness. Irony is that nobody cared a few months ago when literally 30% of our employees were out with the flu lol

Any word on a shut down in production or a timeline for when the rods will be available for pre-order?

No word on a shut down in production and no definite timeline presently. I'm monitoring the status of these rods regularly and they will be up for pre-order as SOON as I have any more concrete details.

An Instagram post today indicated that the F5-70X and F6-69X will be the models with the carbon grip. I’m really digging the looks of those carbon grips.

Is there a full list of models anywhere?

Yes; there is. Click on the lure news links that are provided earlier in this thread. There you can find the full list of models, their names, powers, and rod lengths.

If accurate, the price point is better than I expected. Not cheap by any means but I was thinking they’d be over 500

The Siglett model is intriguing.

Man it so does.

I admit to a bit of fear about high-end rods that are that light, it just takes a moment of carelessness with those tips.

I am also digging the Killer Code, but I have a weakness for shorter, powerful rods with a slower taper. The only I am most likely to get is the new Hien. I am curious as hell about the duel taper.
