Met MGL review missing a few features...

Just looked at the Met. MGL review and noticed Cal didn't mention a few things 1. IPT on the Spec. sheet looks to be from the slower Chronarch MGL 2. Bearing added on the (Handle Side) drive shaft to support gear alignment 3. Spool weight increase due to handle side bearing being moved from frame to...

Re: Is the Zillion SV TWS noisy like Tatulas?

Shimano USA's service has always been excellent and fixed the reels so i'm a big fan of them, but it's sure a bummer to be excited about a new reel and the one you receive has issues right out of the box! I'm now thinking about a USDM Steez SV or possibly a Chronarch MGL? I'm a light line/Tackle (8-...

Steez SV Vs Metanium MGL Who wins?

For those of you who have used both how do you think they compare? I have a Met. 13 & MGL but have been considering adding a Steez SV!

Re: Is the Zillion SV TWS noisy like Tatulas?

I have a 9.1:1 Zillion TWS SV and it is pretty loud. I had to send it in to TTT to get a defective pinion gear replaced and it did come back a little quieter, but it is still louder then any other Daiwa reel that I own. I really don't care for it at all, it feels so much more sloppy and loose as we...

Re: Is the Zillion SV TWS noisy like Tatulas?

Good deal, I hope I will get lucky and receive a Zillion 9.0 that's smooth, I have not had good luck with JDM Shimano's ](*,) I think I will wait to see what black Friday sales show up before hitting the order button... still a little shy on the JDM stuff having been burned three times and needing S...

Is the Zillion SV TWS noisy like Tatulas?

Hopefully somebody can answer this! are the Zillion sv tws gears noisy like the Tatulas are? I have A Tat. CT R and a Cabelas Arachnid both 8.0 :1 and they both sound geary on the retrieve!, the CT R much more that the Arachnid. I'm thinking about ordering a JDM 9.0 :1 Zillion but that gear noise dr...

Re: Replacing round stradic knobs

I have changed all of mine out with the knobs from Curados, there are left and right hand knobs so you will have to pay attention to that when you order and you will need a knob cap also ( I used Red caps), I replaced the one bushing with a bearing when I made the switch as well. Shimano and Tackle ...

Re: Removing spool bearing from new metanium MGL

Just a quick question? was there an issue with the stock bearing? Met. bearings are normally very high quality if you change them out with an Orange seal you are not upgrading... you would have to buy a true top tier bearing to upgrade in any noticeable respect. Unless... some people are starting to...

Re: Rumor? Curado K/Met. Drive gear Swap?

That is great news, I'll be counting the days for the lefties to show up! and a great reason to buy a new Curado only having to keep one type of gears in hand for two different reels is a big win too.

Thanks, Kurt
