Can you confirm if rear handles are a bit longer on the new 2019 levante? Hopefully so..

Bump. Been keeping my eyes on social media, but doesn't seem any pictures have leaked out yet

Going out on a limb. Levante sales for Black Friday are coming and the new model will be announced once stock is mostly depleted.

Hang in there. I will put them up as soon as I get the OK. Expect something just after the first of the year. All testing us done and final prototypes were approved a couple of months back. When productions runs are complete more than nnmnm likely you will see the press release. I can probably tease a picture or two before that.

Rods will ship to dealers towards end of February. The series will mimic the XX as far as models available.

Does it use the same reel seats as the XX?

Thanks.

A lot of nice changes were made to the new Levante this year. I definitely think it was more of an improvement than the xx revamp, and at least these don’t look just like the xxx rods. I really dig the locking nut on the reel seat on the new rods.

My guess is they expose these right before or at the Japanese show in January. Will be interesting to see what they come up with...I only have 1 of the old series (shakeyhead), but I like it, would have really liked it for the price they go for now.
