Finally scratched the itch and got one of these.. fished it this weekend and its easily a match in casting as my Aldebaran BFS. 8-) Not as smooth on the retrieve and the clear coat finish was pretty horrible for such a pricey reel but I knew that going in from Mcyl's report.

My two finesse reels, conquest 51 & bfs xg

Conquest has hedgehog air bearings, 80mm zpi handle, zpi knob bearings and handle nut, weighs 7 oz's.

Bfs has hedgehog air bearings, 80mm offset zpi handle, zpi knobs and bearings, weigh 4.9oz's

Considering lighter spools, but they cast light baits so well already... :big grin:
