Re: CURADO K VS I VS CHRONARCH CI4

The curado K is a great reel, look around and get it for a deal. You can add 4 bearings to the handle and one to the worm gear making it a 12 bearing reel. It casts great and is super smooth. If you are comparing it to the origianl chronarch ci4 I would go with the curado. If you are talking about t...

Re: Bantam MGL Who has their hands on one?

I noticed I had to push it just a bit to get it out, not difficult at all- but I did notice that I couldn’t just tilt the reel and give it a light jolt for it to fall out like my others.

Re: Bantam MGL Who has their hands on one?

Finally got mine in. I added one bearing to each knob and a bearing to the worm gear. It feels super solid. Its smaller than the chronarch but just by a smidge. Its mainly just shorter. The 84mm on the hg seems right at home on this reel. (I am a fan of the 90mm). The spool access side plate is very...

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?

Should be 12 bearings if you add one to the worm gear like the chron and met.
So according to japan Tackle only the sh gets the 90mm handle?

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. I added two bearings per knob and one on the worm gear making it an amazing reel. They gained a bearing on the d...

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...
