The frame of the 70 is the same frame as the XT. I believe I swapped spools at one point and things seemed to fit fine. I didn't fish or cast with the spools swapped though.
Thank you for the information.

SLX Question

Hello,

In terms of grip/palming the reel. Is the SLX 70 MGL smaller in size than the SLX XT?Also, are the spools between the SLX 70 MGL and the SLX XT interchangeable?
Any info is appreciated.

Thanks

Re: PG Gear Replacement Questions

The K and MGL Curado reels will not share components like the gears. Unfortunately there is no way to swap to a PG unless a PG version is developed. If my memory is correct the Engetsu uses slightly different tooling. However, I only deal with the North American model reels here in the US. I am not...

Re: 22 Engetsu BB Spool Question

Looks closest to an SLX. Make sure it has brakes. The Daiwa jigging reels don't. The old engetsu 100 did and is actually a great distance caster of 1/4-3/8 oz with braid. It has a heavy shallow spool that really rips. If you have never fished your stock spool you should give it a try with 20# braid...

22 Engetsu BB Spool Question

Hello, I'm looking to purchase the 22 Engetsu BB 101 PG, however the spool is super shallow. Does anyone know if the spool from a Curado 71 or a Curado 151 or some other Shimano spool with more line capacity would fit? I can't tell what frame they are using for this reel , I think it's a Curado, but...

Re: New Curado 70 mgl K

Not sure if this has been brought up already, any word on the Scorpion version of this reel. Will Shimano be producing a Scorpion 70 k?

Re: 17 Stile SS Question

It seems that spools that hold less line capacity are available(Shimano Stefano) , but the stock spool it comes with is as deep as it gets. Thank you all for the responses and the PMs.

Re: Engetsu BB100PG

I’ve used my Stile SS PG for cranking quite a bit, and it seems very similar. Plenty of cranking power in a small package, but not much line capacity so braid is a must. Braking is simple finesse style VBS which allow for some really free casting with heavier baits. It works great overall, but I’m ...

17 Stile SS Question

Hello I recently picked up the 17 Stile SS 151 PG for fishing crankbaits and really like it. I am using 10lb test fluorocarbon and find that the spool is not deep enough to hold that line for very long casts, I know I can switch to braid, but I rather stick with the fluorocarbon. Is there a deeper s...
