We should have both a a shallow and a deeper spool available soon. Expect the deep spool(much larger demand by customers) to be available in the next few weeks....the shallow spool in a few months. We have many custom parts that will be available for the Concept series reels.

expect quite a few handle knob options to be available later this year. The original Cork knobs will certainly be available.

Sarcastic,

We don't have a date dialed in yet. I think we will have the Deep spool finished and available first, with the shallow spool about a month later. ICAST would be the target date for availability....we will update when we have everything finalized.

Matt,

Do you have any specs of the shallow spools? Thinking I need a Concept A with a shallow spool for My Omen A series ML. Any thoughts to a carbon or carbon/Kevlar handle to match the reel seat hoods on the Omen series rods? Think that would look awesome on the Concept A reels when matched to the Omen rods.

Finnz,

Perhaps some of our parts fit a few reels out there...like all manufacturers we really don't want to encourage mixing parts from different brands....its like building Frankenstein.

TT Fans,

Thank you for all the notes regarding the spools in development for the Concept Program. I have attached a few pictures to show off the KP prototype spool so I could show you why the Concept series is special. We are designing a full series of reels that will have aftermarket parts that are interchangeable within the series. This will allow anglers to upgrade to KP parts, or 13 Trickshop custom parts without stressing about them not fitting their model. You guys will be able to own A, C, E, and KP reels and switch around the custom parts. The upgrades within the models are all based on MATERIAL upgrades for better performance while the overall Chassis remains the same. As a angler I wish that I could swap spools to change line...or go to a deeper or shallower spool based on the application of that days fishing. With the Concept series you WILL have that ability. You will be able to have a boat full of reels from 170-500 and still have versatility to customize your set.

Very smart!

I wish you had come out with reels designed with that philosophy before my last four or five reel purchases! When shore fishing with a single combo, it's a big plus to be able to change line colors or types in response to changing light intensity or cover type.
