Daiwa Project T 2020

Reels are the hottest topic for TackleTour. Everyone wants to know what the latest and greatest is and how they compare to the old guard. What's the best for light stuff, or what's your suggestion for heavy cover. Do we really need different retrieve ratios? It's all in here.

I'll be in on this one for sure :D
Me to - for sure. The only thing I'm not digging is the frame color, but that can be painted. Those blueish highlights behind the cast cap and engine plate are such a nice touch imo. Separates it from the others, and opens the door for cosmetic changes. The sheen on the plates is great, and I can play around with many spools.

I believe the new Zillion is a 34 mm spool platform instead of the traditional 36 mm.
This means that probably, the new Zillion 10 will be a spin-off of the Steez A and that is a good thing.
The current Zillion SV is also 34mm. This new 10 looks to share more with the current Zillion SV than the Steez A
The side plate is definitely steez a/SVTW not zillion svtw, but the rest does look mostly zillion svtw.
After some research in the net and a lot of eyeballing, this reel starts to look a lot like a Tatula TW SV.

If so, they could at least use a brighter color....

It is an updated version of this guy. The Zillion SV. It shares parts with the Tatula CT but has a free floating 34 mm spool.

Been waiting for the new Zillion a while now, probably just gonna step up to the Steez CT though instead. Nothing wrong with this one, just not sure the specifics yet or if they will offer any non ridiculous ratios. I would be a little disappointed if this was just an updated Zillion SV TW or an updated Tatula SV (I know it has to be one of them, but just like to see some more change). I would love to see an aluminum version of the CT SV Steez's frame.

Looks so, but we don't know that for sure yet. At any rate, this new Zillion blows that out of the water cosmetically imo. Hopefully it's a little lighter. Those bumpers though!

Looks really nice to me. I like the improved palm side plate the most. I have no interest in a 10+ rato reel though. 7.1 is my go to.
