I can understand a $50 price jump on things, but still cant wrap my head around the 100-200 dollar up charge for buying the same reel in the US vs direct from Japan. Customs and tax difference. US importer has to pay, but you may get away with it. If US customs were more strict (as in most of EU), ...

I am trying the tranx 400 this year for the first time so I can't report on how well they last etc. I have used the 500 sized in the past and there is no denying its a tank but it doesnt seem like the new smaller tranx share much beyond the name with the 500 sized reel. As a muskie and big bait slin...
I use mine with a steez a. It used completely for spinnerbaits, swimjigs and swimbaits under 6 inches. I think it would load up nice for light t rigs etc but I end using my emtf for those duties. I have really fell in love with the rod for 4-5 inch swimbaits in the grass.

I have a Zillion SV TW XXH the JDM 9 speed version. You can find them on the auction site for cheaper than the USDM models sell for on most sites. I am able to throw small jackal frogs all the way up to oversized frogs with ease and have had no issues pulling in fish through the slop.
I started using them last year. Suprised how durable they are with the exo stick especially. I had several days where the exo stick out fished a senko, on a lake where senkos are thrown a TON. Had some great days on the exo swim also just on a jig head where my partner fished a spinnerbait. I will b...

Can you post the IPT of each reel side by side? Obviously it changes a bit at the beginning of a cast but I have noticed quite a large difference of IPT when comparing gear ratios. Sometimes it feels harder or easier to move a bait but you may be moving a larger amount of line due to IPT.
I run a megabass launcher. Perfect for UP to a 8xd. I dont like it for 10xds at all but it works in a pinch. I mostly throw dd22, 6xd and 8xd on it. No issues throwing it all day and I have caught several 30"+ muskies the last few seasons on it while deep cranking for bass.
Worth the money is up to you ultimatly. Is it a big jump from say the A? sure. I still use my C right next to my zillions, z2020, ryoga, and steez a. Is it as refined as the Steez etc no, but the price isnt as high either. It was a much easier to cast reel than my old lews team lites that I moved aw...
I was using my zillion sv tws 9.1 last week to flip jigs for largemouths on leech lake. I ended up hooking several eater pike in the 26-30 inch class daily and never felt like i was having a torque issue, this was also fighting the fish in reeds and millfoil. You're a better man than I, Charlie Bro...

I have had mine for a few seasons. I believe it is the same rod as the perfect pitch just longer. I use mine for punching jigs and for larger pike lures in the 1-2 oz size. I also use it for a frog rod depending whas in the boat etc. I have mine rigged up with a z2020 with 50lb braid and really enjo...

I have had mine for awhile now but only on the water using it for maybe 3 trips. I have it mounted on a megabass launcher. It does throw the lighter end of the spectrum of cranks decently (wiggle warts etc), but last trip I put a 6xd on it and it really ripped. I didnt notice any difference in power...
