Ocea Jigger LD 2000II replacement for Shimano Ocea Jigger 2000P announced.
I've been wanting a lever drag replacement for the Shimano Ocea Jigger 2000P for awhile, and it looks like its getting an update!
The LD2000II holds 95m less PE4 than the Talica TAC8II which it is based on. I don't yet know if that means its narrower, or the spool has a larger arbour. It also seems to have one more bearing. The gear inches are pretty much the same as the 2000P in high speed (96cm), or the same as the JM PE4 in low gear (60cm).
Not really sure what the point of having a two speed jigger is, and thats after owning one as well. We can only hope that shimano gets smart and releases a single speed version and soon!
There is a single speed version of the talica coming real soon now, really. They have been promising Feb, then March, April and now May dammit.
Edit: the spool width of the TAC8II is 34mm and if the LD2000II holds 25% less, then the spool width would be about 25mm, exactly what the Ocea Jigger 2000P has. I'm a bit worried from the pics that they just put a fatter arbour on the TAC8 spool. My current PE3 jigger is an Avet SX and that is 37mm across, and its easy to handle. The Daiwa Saltist LD30II was way too wide though.
