Yes they have. It's the [TXZ](https://www.tacklewarehouse.com/13_F...cpage-CTX.html). I don't have one. It's about $100 more than I want to spend.

Being a fan of 13 fishing reels, I have no intention on buying the TXZ.

1- I have the Z. Although I do think its a good reel, the CZB bushings aren't what they made out to be. I take the TX, C, or A while the Z sits on the rack. I used a hand full of times and like it, but I don't prefer it over my others.

2- That big *** knobby handle. One of my reasons for liking the Concept reels is the cork knobs. The TXZ has some big knobby EVA grips. Not a fan.

3- $330 is ridiculous. I'd say about $100 less I'd buy it.

the spool CZB bushings have to be oiled after use to keep them working properly. surprised no one mentions this?? it outcast my core 50's with ABEC7's though. it's my go to reel.

are the C and A salt water??

the Z is on-sale for $149.00 or $159.00 at academy. tempting.

the TXZ was tempting but a little pricey.

Never oiled my Z because I've rarely used it. Not saying it doesn't cast good. I just prefer the regular ole Concept reels. It also feels cheaper than the others. The A feels superior in quality over the Z IMO.

If you like the Z, great. I've thought about selling mine, but decided to keep being its one of it's kind at this point in time.

Which bearings would the Z (and/or TXZ) use? Those two models aren’t listed as an option.
