    Got any pics of these new gems? I would be anxious to see how they gave the 6500 a v spool and kept the line capacity the same.

    Seen the green cat prototype, black 6500 pro rocket at catfish connection. The green is the same as the previous black/blue TCCF except forest green.

    I reiterate, I am ANXIOUSLY awaiting them so I can get me a pair to complement my pair of 'Blue Cats', my pair of 6500c3, my pair of 6500TC, and my pair of 6000s. I'm working my way towards 12 total reels, in pairs. This thread really gets me psyched up!!!! :big_smile:
