What's next for Shimano???

Reels are the hottest topic for TackleTour. Everyone wants to know what the latest and greatest is and how they compare to the old guard. What's the best for light stuff, or what's your suggestion for heavy cover. Do we really need different retrieve ratios? It's all in here.

It looks like the Scorpion has a scorpion logo on the cast control knob.

Scorpion logo looks better than the Tatula spider tribal-bro arm Tattoo thing.

What's wirh the circle on the palming plate. I thought it was used to open the side plate but that is not the case in the video. Is it just a styling que borrowed from the Bantam MGL? It is nice that it has an external centrifugal dial. Maybe this will make its way into the regular SLX at some point.
