Nice photos GaborSuri.

The reels bags look like the ones that used to come with the Calais'.
You buy them or have them made ?

My new to me, almost new condition Scorpion Antares. Restored a bit with some new parts, gears set, carbontex drag, spool and frame bearings, and full clean and lube. Loving this thing.

I basically stole this at another forum. Brand new in the box. Has everything it came with from the factory. I don't know if I can spool this little gem up. For now she sits on the display rack.

Great grab ! Congrats !

Yes that was a awesome price. I was lurking on that one as I knew it wouldn't last long.

The official Scorpion BFS XG came in today, not sure what to make of the color, its like a matte bronze, im sure it will grow on me :lol: . Spool is heavier as I predicted with less porting than the Aldebaran BFS spool. Still pretty light at 8.8 grams, and theres no bearing. It may be a different type of aluminum that the Aldebaran spool. Comes with all the magnets installed, a total of 8.

I'm not mad at that bronze color. It's different, reminds me of an automotive paint color like factory paint from a Toyota Camry. But it looks cool on a fishing reel.
