Re: Metanium vs Chronarch

I love my Metanium 13 and MGL.

My 13 had a bit of buzz until I ordered curado gears, now its smooth.

My MGL is came super smooth and I run shimano drag grease in all my reels.

Re: Curado K gears

One question. Do the 13 and MGL Mets both use the same pinion gear? No they don't you have to order the specific one for each reel. Kurt That's odd, the main gear is interchangeable, and both pinions are compatible, but not compatible with the respective reels which can both use the same main gear....

Re: Shimano Loomis Conquest rods

There's a lot of debate over what feeling tip heavy is it seems. Some guys don't even notice something that feels very tip heavy to me, others complain that something is tip heavy that I think feels pretty well balanced :lol: It's not perfectly neutrally balanced at the stem of the reel, but it's n...

What is the definition of tip heavy in your hands? Which Stella?


Basically with the reel mounted on the rod, the rod feels when held like the tip is weighed down "tip heavy"

Stella FJ, I'm wondering about the balance point.

Re: Shimano Loomis Conquest rods

So is that a vote in favour of the 902S? Any impressions you would be willing to share? I am most interested in casting distance, balance with your Stella and sensitivity when dragging jigs or best uses. Thanks Gary! YES! The 902s Conquest has quickly jumped into my "favorite" spinning ro...

Re: pros/cons, steez sv tws, us or jdm model?

I bet they are all made the same, same QC, same line, same workers... :big grin:

All my reels are made in Japan from Japan except my Curado 201I and they are all excellent and I'm very picky
with tolerance, smoothness, power and overall feel.

I usually choose off of diameter.

My guess would be Japan only, like the yumeya shallow spool for the metanium 13.
