Shimano Stephano & Engetsu gears!

Post by LuS » Mon Mar 02, 2020 9:18 am

Hi all
Question: does anyone know if Shimano Stephanos (either SS or Aldebaran based model) have brass gears?
Same question for Engetsu?
Bonus question for the true JDM fanatics - are the curado 70 based Engetsu's micro module gears interchangeable with the Stephano SS's gears?
Appreciate any info! Thanks in advance
Luca :)

There are multiple models of the Engetsu. The model I own is basically a Curado 70 on steroids, including brass gears. I'd have to dig out the box to see the exact model number of mine, but that is the model that I would recommend. The other models are Citica based if my memory recalls.

Thank you!! The curado 70 based models look like great deals too; either with corefit for the stile and Stephano or micromodule for the engetsu. The other models are based on the aldebaran; the only thing that scares me off aldebarans is the aluminum gear (might have a hardened surface but that only extends .004” or so deep). If these reels were brass geared then I’d either get them or just get an aldebaran and drop in their gears...
