No, but thanks for the heads up. Looks like a nice upgrade. Going to order a couple with the ring length chicken loops, no more cutting things apart. The center hole on v2 was already pretty wide, looks like they go even further, I like that. I guess you're wondering the same thing I am... how well do those bearings hold up. Hope someone can chime in.
Love this company, no frills, no nonsense, appropriately priced products, and always improving.

Yes, thanks for the info. Ordered the upgrade spare parts for the V2 QR. I had retro-fitted an older Naish Bar with the V2 QR and the ATB depower. Works well despite the swivel, which is a known issue. Hopefully this solves it.

Did you notice a slight throw/trim difference afterwards? And a difference between the safetyline and mainline? Looks like the internals are of a different length than the V2?

So far I have only replaced the QR while the lines were rolled up. Need to check the trim, but it is my back up bar, so I was not focussing on it. The swivel is a huge improvement and runs very easily. But let’s wait until it has met salt water and sand...

Unfortunately mine is stuck in customs so haven't had a chance to test it.

Yeah it's the swivel from the current one that's really bad. I made it a habit to do backrolls after loops.

Any new experiences?

Working good?

Easy to put together after releasing ?

Safe feeling?

Thx
Simon
