Re: Bantam MGL

They've fixed it I believe to a greater extent.

I've donned all my baitcasters and some spin reels with the Antares knobs like what come standard on the Bantam MGL... So far they've held upto Inox oils which melted the older knobs in an instant.

Re: Bantam MGL

Those Technical L grips are good for smaller reels but be mindful that they're the offenders that go sticky in time when exposed to scent / bug spray / lube oil...

I'm not sure what composite they are using.
Any chance of finding out or is it secret squirrel stuff? I'm just interested as the previous iterations of Stradic with the half alu half plastic always mentioned the XT7G plastic, this particular reel has been disregarded all together.

Stradic FL plastics

Hi Dan. Can you confirm that the body half on the new Stradic FL is XT7G* plastic or a revised lower end / Ci4 / non mentioned composite? IMG_20190915_081124.jpg Picture attached of the body half showing what seems to be some sort of fibre in the PA, but just no denotation of +GF? Thanks in advance.
