No more purple in the HLC.
Matches the Roman Made much better now since that’s what it’s all about right?!? :D

Looks great. How does the HLC handle big baits? I've an HLC spool in my IP68 and have done some yard fishing with it, 65# and a frog. The thing just insta-spools it is so fast. I swear I let my thumb off the spool and watch all the line disappear in like 2 seconds. Awesome spool.
I’m no expert but so far it’s been the best zillion variant that I’ve used for swimbaits (2-3.5oz max). Enough line capacity and just like your frogs it absolutely launches lures.

Here's mine: Zillion 801MHRB-G/Ambassadeur 5501cs Pro Rocket with dual bearing skeletonized idler gear, dual bearing spool gear, and ceramic pawl. The Gantarel is as big as I go with it and it handles it well. Rocks for baits like the Duo G87 20a.

My only setup for "big" swimbaits. Just spooled up some Sunline 25lb Assassin FC main 2 baits are the Jackall Gantarel Jr and in lower light conditions I'm going to try the Megabass Big M 4.0

I like it when real seat locking nut matches the spool tension knob. I have a knob that matches the Orochi xx/xxx rods and know I will use it someday on a build.

Perfect indeed I just noticed the black matching nicely between both :lol: Fun reel like how it's much more sealed than the Curado. Little more beefy look with the handle. Watched a good tear down between both learned lots

Never thought about it, but after seeing Biggs' pic and post, maybe I can consider my MB Casino for deep cranking as well. Right now its my light duty swimbait rod.
