I bought one of the first Chronarchs but I wasnt impressed at all. As long as I can still get some of the Zillions, I will pick up a few of them and see how things go. Thanks for the help.
I have several Metanium MGL's and a Bantam. I dont care for the bantam but I use it for frogs. I wanted something for throwing swim jigs, spinnerbaits (bladed baits). Im leaning towards the Zillion but I am curious about the Curado DC. Any comments on it? Thanks
I need to pick up a few reels and thought about giving the Tatula TWSV a try. Now I see the Zillion TWSV can be had at a good price bringing it closer to what Im looking for. Im also interested in the new Curado DC and some of the new Lews reels. My question is: Is there a reel in this price range t...
Im picking up a GLX893s for throwing heavier tubes for smallmouth. Im looking at a Tatula 3000 or 4000, a Ballistic 3000 or 4000, or a Luvias 3000. Im currently using 2500 CI4+ reels on all spinning stuff but I dont feel like its going to be big enough for this rod. I just found a, possibly new CI4+...
With a background in automotive and airbrush painting. I was doing a few reels when only ZPI was doing it. Unless someone is building a shelf Queen, frames aren't worth painting. To do them right they need to be soda blasted and chemically treated before paint. If you don't care much about chipping ...

Im a tournament fisherman and I have been using Loomis rods for sometime. I have wanted to try a couple of the 13 rods and do a little head to head comparison. What 7'+ rod would be recommended for a 3/8 tube? I like light blanks and quality guides. Thanks for your time.

I ordered 1 and received the wrong model. If anyone needs a 6.2 for cheap,let me know. Otherwise what mods are being done to these reels? I have an XG model thats going for its first ride tomorrow. I will be ordering a carbon handle and updating some of the other parts with anodized stuff as I find ...
I have only used the Daiwa X8 and once I tried it, I put it on most everything. I havent tried the X4 but I would deffinately be willing to try it if it was readily available in my area. What the heck, give it a whirl.
Are there any anodized parts out there? I like to add a few things to each to help identify what reel is used for what. Also a little bling never hurt anyone. lol
I have posted on another thread about how happy I am with the new Curado K. Just wondering if there are many cool anodized parts, bearings, etc. available for it. Anyone with a couple of pics of their blinged out reel? Thanks, just looking for ideas.
I have not used a tatula but I used to be a Daiwa nut with lots of Steez reels, TDZ's and alphas. In all honesty, This reel out performs all of them, it's that good. The 7.1 might be a bit much for deep cranking but I'm sure you know what's best for you. Good luck and tight lines.
I was able to use one of my new Curado K's yesterday and I have to say, Its the nicest sub 300.00 reel I have used. WOW! this thing does everything with ease. I was bombing a 3/8 Chatterbait with 40lb braid yesterday. I made no effort what so ever on each cast and the didtance is on par with my Meta...
I agree. I have 2 of the Core 50MG7's and dont see them going anywhere. I just want to know if the new gearing and other changes make the Curado K any better than the Chronarch 50E. I own the Chronarch 50E and love it but it might be easier to find the new stuff. I need a few reels for moving baits ...
I have a Curado K on the way but I already own a Chronarch 50E. I guess my question is, are todays lower end reels better than yesterdays higher end reels? I know there is a size difference but I will be using the reels with 20-30 braid throwing swimjigs and chatter style baits so I shouldnt have a ...
