Totally agree. A 50HG will be my next purchase, looking forward to February.

I might have to agree with you on that one. Core 50 and Aldebaran Mg were the sexiest looking reels Shimano ever made, in my eyes at least.

Wonder if you can buy just the top plate and replace it on the Metanium?

I'm going to wait for the US Aldebaran (Core) to see if it has red like the previous model. Already pre-order the DC.
