Otto's tackle world was selling some of their reels at a significant discount to US prices. Couple that with a favorable exchange rate versus Australian currency and some are probably buying and re-selling to make a few bucks. They just recently quit shipping to the US. Tiagra 50 wides were about $150 less than retail including shipping, The Talica 50II was over $350 less than US retail by memory. The Talica 25II was pretty close to the same as US retail. Not sure on the others reels as these were the only ones I looked at.
