The new ones have black side plates chrome cage and blue spool. People don't seem to be crazy about them. I got one and used it as a platform for a custom. Added a bunch of goodies and spent a bunch of money. Something to do over the winter.
I also have one of the new blue yonders. I have the 7000. Very solid reel. Actually just picked it up last week loaded it with 20 lb mono and it will flat out cast a 6oz . And I haven't even cleaned and oiled the bearings yet
Same here. 7000 that I spooled with tangerine color suffix tritanium and mounted on a 13ft HDX. I can't wait to see what it does after I regrease and oil the bearing because it's already a monster. Even if it is made in China
