Flagship of the time, along with cheaper variants X and S (like the TD-X and TD-S).

Re: Bantam MGL Who has their hands on one?

My question is the opposite, whether those spool bearings can be put in other reels.

Maybe it's also to dampen the spool/bearing vibrations.

Re: Alphabrake - New Kind of Braking?

Interesting. Can you tell us a little more what cast weights and type (low or high wind resistance) you have tried successfully with the brakes?

Re: Alphabrake - New Kind of Braking?

Looks cool. So in your render, is the line going out to the left? The arm pivots on the '9' looking piece? So when the spool is accelerating and rotating counter-clockwise, it's in the disengaged/neutral position as shown. And when the spool is deccelerating, the weights with the alpha logo 'lunge f...

Re: Bantam MGL Who has their hands on one?

Check this review on the video... I dont think that the Bantam is better that the Chronarch...there are some minuses I think for the Bantam. https://youtu.be/qL0WH8qOHOk For those who don't want to watch a 28 min video.

Product request... MGL spool with new SVS infinity for Conquest

Don't need a new reel, just a new spool and brake pipe that you can buy separately.

Re: Bantam MGL Who has their hands on one?

Interesting size comparison to the met mgl. Didn't realise it was smaller?

The 782 felt like a power to half a power softer. The 783 felt half a power more.

The rda data that i saw afterwards confirmed that, but can't find that site anymore.

6'6" version of the old MBR 842 GLX

Just wondering if anyone's come across a rod tht would fish like the 66 version of the MBR 842C GLX (10-17 lb). The one I have is the older model with the ECS reel seat. Dobyns, Phenix, Kistler, etc.? Tried the 782 GLX and 783 GLX of the same generation, and they are nothing like the 842. Trying to ...

Not that any of us can understand it.

Re: 2017 Daiwa Ballistic 1000D - Drag

Could it be the ATD feature?
