I really don't know how Ehrler pulls the sponsor money he pulls. I'd love to know how well these new zillions are lubed from the factory.If somebody on here gets to crack one open before I do , your findings would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Which Steez?

A 6:3 is pretty slow for t-rigs but ok for chatterbaits. You can save about $120 if you get it jdm , digitaka has it for $380 free shipping.

Re: 2020 Twin Power - anyone with feedback?

I know it's made in Japan. They have certainly not promoted it like the other reels.They did the same thing with the spheros sw inshore , didn't want to steal any thunder from the stradic FL, and now they are doing it with the Vanford. If you get one please report back , I'd love to know how it work...

Re: Curado 300K

If it borrows the same thumbar from the Tranx 300/400 , I'll buy... If it sports the 200 K thumbar , they can keep it.

Re: Curado 300K

Re: Do you mind Daiwa going full Made In Thailand?

If it ain't broke don't fix it. I would not pay big money for a Steez made in Thailand.

The "new" Tatula CT is not based on the 100 platoform. It is the old Tatula from 2016. Tatulas don't go away. They just keep making more and renaming the old ones and releasing them as new (Tatula 150, 200 and Tatula CT)

Thanks for pointing that out , I see it now ,the handle threw me off.
