Well, I wasn’t quite prepared to preview it yet, but be expecting the TF-Pro and TF-Pro SALT with SMART STIR in 2021! I am very excited about this new test kit. I absolutely love the test kit box! It is PU waterproof leather with a custom, waterproof insert The SMART STIR is in the box, so it is always there with you, and you can test in the kit itself. It will have the same contents as the TF-100 except the R-0010 and R-0011L will be one ounce instead of 1/2 ounce. There will be 6 ounces of R-0013, but more CYA tests than the TF-100 because it will be a smaller CYA view tube using less reagent. I am super excited (and a little nervous) about this big under taking, but if you’re not changing and moving forward you’re just going backwards. The TF-100 will still be available. The TF-Pro will automatically qualify for free shipping. Now for a sneak peak 😃

I notice the net in the lid has room for extra things like a vial or two....and I'm sure a couple of extra magnetic beans can fit in the bean place, or store in the vials themselves.

Front left is CYA testing, Front right is CL testing
Middle row is CH testing and speedstir
Back row is TA testing

Mine is remarkably similar:
CH to upper-left, TA to upper-right
CYA to lower-left, Cl testing to lower-right
OTO in the lower-middle

(GMTA!) 😄

It will have the same contents as the TF-100 except the R-0010 and R-0011L will be one ounce instead of 1/2 ounce.
An extremely humble suggestion (from someone who doesn't actually have to put this thing together): Given the 10 drops needed from the R-0010, going upto an ounce is great. But given the R-0011L is only 3, it should probably stay at 0.5 oz; that would give about 35-40 CH tests across the board.

(Similarly, the R-0007 should be knocked down to a 1/2 oz, and the R-0009 bumped upto 2 oz, which would give about 140-150 TA tests across the board.)

Katodude, box looks great, thx for pic. what's the instatest? if it measures FC, does it measure high levels? worth it?
That looks to me like R-0870 dpd powder. Definitely measures FC at high levels. Definitely worth it, in fact, pretty much required for TFPC methods.

EDIT: I’m totally wrong, those are probably test strips 😮

In fact, both pictures of fishing tackle boxes -- Katodude's and CowboyCasey's -- have InstaTest test strips. What's that all about?
