Re: Steez ltd sv tw

I wonder if the gears in the new Zillion are the same as the gears in the Steez variants.

Re: Steez ltd sv tw

Exactly like the previous gen of limited Steez. Fancy paint Steez in limited production with a new spool. Honest not disappointing at all if you knew what you were in for. I have zero knowledge of previous Ltd Steez’s so I’m legitimately curious...did the previous Ltd Steez also come with a box and...

Re: Kistler Reels

The Kistler reels are not identical to the Bionic Plus. Look closely at the two reels and you will see the differences.

Re: Zillion sv TW 1000

No more protruding mag dial! Not too keen on the thumb rest area with the drop down. Hopefully it is more comfortable than it looks.

Re: New Curado 70 mgl K

I did some testing with my new 71HG MGL this past weekend. On Saturday I did some yard casting comparing the new Curado MGL and the original Curado 71. Both reels had the same 30 pound braid, the same 3/8oz jig, and the same rod. During long distance casting the MGL casted between 5 to 12 feet furth...

Re: New Curado 70 mgl K

My Curado 71HG MGL K arrived from TW yesterday. The reel is the same color as the 200 K series. Not crazy about the black nose piece but it still looks good. The reel is smooth.The line capacity remains the same. I love the 90mm handle. The knobs and end caps are a new design. The knobs are similar ...

Re: New Curado 70 mgl K

I have a 71HG on the way from TW. When I looked on their website on Sunday morning there were 6 lefties available so I ordered one. A few hours later they were all sold out. Dang, they all must have gone quick if they're already shipping. I just figured there was some sort of delay with the release...

Re: New Curado 70 mgl K

Anybody know the handle length? It looks like a 90mm to me. [-o< Looks like the same handle length as it was before. If you compare the handle on the Curado 70 MGL to the 84mm handle on the Bantam you can see the new Curado has a 90mm handle. Look at the spacing between the cutout and the knob. Als...
