Probably out later in 2020.
The spool looks like the one on the Scorpion DC. I would assume this is a JDM only reel.

Re: 2020 Zillion 10

I want that palm plate, but I need it in the color of the original Zillion TW SV. The protruding mag dial is it's only real wart that can't be easily remedied. I sanded the teeth on the mag dial and the ridge below it some but it didn't help enough. Sun gloves help a little but I don't want to wear...

Re: Any 2020 Shimano reel leaks.....

The Reel Test on YouTube uncovered a couple shots of a new casting reel. It looks like it has a Core Solid Body.

Re: Daiwa Project T 2020

I'd really like to hear what the haters actually want out of daiwa ? :-k It seems we have some keyboard commando engineers among us... The main thing I ask is for Daiwa to ditch the protruding mag dial. Use the Steez CT style palm plate on all there reels. I care about comfort a lot more than looks...

Re: Daiwa Project T 2020

I've palmed the Tatula 100 at my local BPS and it actually palms really good. I hear they are Steez TW SV size but I don't have one so it is more like an Alphas to me. I have held one in the store and it's more Alphas-like then Steez TW SV-like, which is good imho. I was thinking about picking one ...

Re: Daiwa Project T 2020

I noticed the Tatula SV's that the US pro's are casting have the chrome handle nut covers like the regular Tatulas 100's. Probably have a 90mm handle where as the JDM version is 84mm.

haha his last fish " if this reel wasnt 10:1 i would have missed that fish" :lol:
It makes me sick to think of all the fish I have missed out on over the years because I didn't have a 10:1. Probably lost a bunch of club tournaments to. :(

Re: 2020 Zillion 10

I actually like the current mag dial. I can adjust it one-handed and I guess I palm it the right way to not notice it. I feel the dial and the ridge under it on my pointer finger. I tried using two fingers in front of the trigger many times but I can't get used to it. Yeah palming with two finger i...

Re: 2020 Zillion 10

I have zero need for a 10:1 reel but if I can put 6.3:1 gears in the new Zillion I would buy one in a heartbeat because it has the recessed mag dial.
