RE:HOT new reels!
I agree with you on the aesthetics and the spool change-out situation of the Loop Evotec LW. The one thing that concerns me with this reel is that the spool felt almost fragile in my hand. Compared to spools from Bauer/Ross/Tibor, I kept thinking that the raised sides of the spool would be more prone to bending/warping.
(I was the guy who passed on the 6nine to you).
