I don't think they're even out yet, are they?
I would thinks it's going to be a while before anyone can answer the durability question.

Dont have any info on field tests but some guys who have the torque say they are great so far on different pelagic species.
Can only speculate on that Penn bail.

To be honest, I think I'm going to ride the fence for a while.
I hate paying big $$ to be the guinea pig.

In a year or two, if the surf reports all come back positive, maybe I'll think about one
(Wish they'd lose all that cheesy gold bling though)

I would love to pull the trigger blindly on the torque. But I am afraid of first generation engineering oversights.

The 100% stainless steel bail features a unique system under the rotor where the angler can choose between automatic or manual trip at the touch of a switch. A dual arm bailess kit is available for those who prefer the more traditional style. The high capacity spool is braid ready, which means the reel is built to withstand the strains that braided lines put on a reel.
Available early December 09'
Hmmm!

I can't tell you how many plugs/tins eels etc. I have sent to London with a premature trip on a 704. The Manual trip would be the way to go or bailless
