Is anyone familiar w/ J. Austin Forbes reels? Came across a particularly attractive price on one - about 50% off list. Suspect it may be a prior year model (or perhaps discontinued?).

Any and all opinions, advice etc. welcomed. Still contemplating a Lamson Velocity V4 (ok, ok, the Ross Canyon 5 too...), but at 50% this has piqued my interest...
