I saw that plat.co.jp also posted an announcement for pre-orders.
The specifications that I found out are:
30HG and 31HG
Color is gunmetal
I am smiling as well I may have to get on this pre order and just surprise the wife with her own that she’ll never use.
Im definitely looking forward to seeing how this one performs over the previous model cause it’s just like a watch in terms of precision and performance
I am planning to replace my Zillion SV1000 with this reel. Plan to run 10lb or 12lb fluorocarbon and use it on my 7'2"Medium xfast rod. It would be interesting if Shimano used FTB rather than SVS for this version. I assume they will stick with SVS, and the 100HG I have is pretty good already for light stuff so this one should be too. I ended up fishing my 100HG on a MH rod, but when it was on a Medium or softer MH it could throw 3/16 plus a light worm very well...

I would bet anything it does. I am guessing it will be identical to the 100HG, but with a shallow spool and gunmetal color. That is good though, 100HG is one of the best reels of all time (that I've used).
