Re: Bantam MGL Who has their hands on one?

No silent tune just moves the bearing that is normally under the spool tension cap onto the spool.

Re: Bantam MGL Who has their hands on one?

So does it have an 84 or 90 mm handle?
Is the handle side aluminum or ci4 type material.
Thanks for all the pics- that’s awesome!!

Re: Bantam MGL Who has their hands on one?

Ok from pics I found on Instagram - it does have the larger opening line guide like the met. Lots of opinions on this thread... The metainium mgl in my opinion is a great lighter bait (up to 1/2 oz) type finesse reel. It is light, smooth, zero complaints- it does have the ci4 material palm side plat...

Re: Bantam MGL Who has their hands on one?

It weighs 7.8 ounces,do yourself a favor and get a metanium instead. I have 6 metainium mgl, 5 or 6 chronarch mgls, a conquest mgl, 3 aldebarans and a couple of curado ks... This reel is basically a conquest in a low profile frame. I just like to try new reels. I also Don’t mind giving up some weig...

Bantam MGL Who has their hands on one?

I like to tinker and add bearings. Could someone tell me a couple things.. 1. Did this one get the extra bearing on the drive shaft? 2. Does it have a bushing on the worm gear that can be replaced with a bearing like the curado k, met mgl, chron mgl, and aldebaran? 3. Did it get silent tune? 4. Did ...

Re: Curado K

There is a post about the thumb bars on the first run of these not having enough glue. According to bantam, the issue has been fixed. This is by far the most refined curado ever produced.

Re: Shimano Bantam MGL???

Maybe in for a Bass Master Classic release? Also, I just realized it is short a bearing from the Chronarch MGL. Please tell me its a mistake or they just don't have handle bearings or something. I really like the thought of a dual supported pinion, dual supported spool, and dual supported main shaf...

Re: Imx pro

I have been fishing the 894 for a while, I am impressed with its sensitivity. They are leaps and bounds ahead of the previous model. I am thinking about another soon.
