Bet he was fishing a Scorpion! 8-)
The reel was clearly a Lews LFS. It also had red and black Winn flat paddle knobs. Maybe it was a prototype. The MLF rerun show is on the Outdoor Channel on Friday at 9.00 a.m. eastern. The reel is shown in the early part of the show.

Could it have been one of those smash reels? Or was it clearly red?
The whole reel was a darker shade of red. The Smash reel is a neon red with a black frame.

I'll keep my KVD 1.5's and 2.5's. You can have the KVD reel! :lol:
But it looks so pretty.

Lews KVD reel?

During the latest MLF show there was a red Lews reel on the deck of Vandam's boat based off the newest LFS casting reel. I wonder if it is a new KVD version to be released this year?

New products

What is Shimano's plan for introducing new products now that ICAST has been cancelled? Has the virus delayed some new rods and reels?

Re: Zero Adjust Knob

I just tried to make the swap and they are not interchangeable. The diameter is a hair different.

Re: More Bang for the Buck : The Shimano SLX DC Baitcaster Series

I recently bought a SLX DC for fishing bladed jigs. I also have used a regular SLX for over a year or so. After comparing both I prefer the cheaper SLX. I can cast the SLX further than the DC in most situations. The DC is a little easier to cast into a strong wind because I don't have to use my thum...

Re: What is your go-to Jackhammer/Cricket trailer?

My favorite trailer is the RI Little Dipper. It works from spring to fall. I fish natural lakes with clear water and lots of weeds.

Re: Curado K vs Bantam

Just received a new Bantam today. This is the most comfortable Shimano I have ever held. The reel is silky smooth. I feel like a total idiot for not buying one when they first came out. I haven't casted it yet but I have a feeling I will be buying more. Welcome to the party! :mrgreen: You can bet I...

Pretty sure this is a Daiwa Japan only reel.

Daiwa USA version will be coming later.
The Zillion 10 is on Daiwa US website.
