Default Fin Nor Lt100s....

Alright for those of you that actually got this reel before they went out of stock (for what seems is going to be an eternity) how has this reel performed after a few trips? Pros? Cons? Deciding if I even want to give fin nor my business after this latest "pushback" of the shipment date.

TackleDirect emailed me that they are still waiting for them to come in... I placed my order on 5/8... they were hopeful that this week or next they would come in... but didn't sound too sure.

I think Shark River is saying August.

That's some bad luck chad. Another concern of mine was would fin nor somehow change this reel and put in lesser quality parts as compared to the first batch that came out? I couldn't imagine a company doing that and expect to stay in business but I'm sure it's possible it has happened before...

Yea I ordered mine through shark river and got a reply today saying that it would August. But at this point they've pushed the date back about 4 times so I don't have much faith that they will even be ready by then either. Hopefully I'm wrong in that assumption

I've been fishing with mine for a little over a month now and wish I would have ordered two or three of them. They have strong drags and good cranking power and are comfortable paired with a tiger lite. It puts my Penn Battle to shame in every aspect at roughly the same cost. Worth the money and the wait in my opinion.

Tackle Direct is now saying August.

my standing order is with SRMO as well (hopefully August)...spoke with Cook&Cook yesterday...there is a shipment arriving this week in the States...and another one right behind it...the size of the Fin Nor distributor is depicting who gets what. I'm told Australia has been getting most of the current ones and some crafty people are buying and shipping from there.
