I love the new looks. Not a fan of DC reels but this could be my first <3

Great experiences with DC reels wonder what one made you not a fan. Calais DC and Calcutta TEDC were my fav's before the Exsence DC came out. This looks badass nice find

I like to be in control of my reels breaking system, just not a big fan of "limiting" ones.

I hope it's smaller than the current Antares.

That's what I've been waiting for! I hope it's saltwater safe or it has no use for me.

Man, I just bought a Metanium 15 DC... Maybe should've waited for next year, argh hopefully I won't regret that.

Correct me if I'm wrong, MG stands for magnesium? Then what does L stand for? Thanks in advance.

I think MGL is likely to stand for Mg Lite.
