Ha, I didn't realize they were metallic or I might of went that route. I was thinking they were some kind of foam. I originally bought a pair of the tacker ex in purple for this reel but wanted to try to keep offsetting the pink/purple and that would have had me joining purple knobs on the purple handle. So many knob options these days. Thanks!

The only way that reel could get more feminine is to have a unicorn painted on the side :lol: . Maybe it and the Bape could get together and have babies. Little pink Pixy's and big green Monoblocks.
I don't mind imagining a hot scantily clad woman with it in her hands though.

I hear you man but, I do like unicorns and probably why I own more of (((THEM))). That reel
doesn’t get out much but maybe once a year on a LSC trip my friends from KY take me on. They call it ‘Mr. Metrosexual’ appropriately. This spool has me wanting to get it some time in next week and in FL with those same guys that are fishing with me during what looks to be ideal post Christmas conditions. For once I think we get our weather. Hope everyone else gets their weather too! Merry Christmas.

I couldn't help but needle ya :lol: . I have seen a few pink TDZ's and a hot pink TD Zillion on here over the years that guys have for their wives. They are well done also. I always like rare color schemes, even if it is not my personal colors. It would be hard not to fish a reel that nice. A picture of you with that reel and lunker would get you legendary reputation points.

We put some serious miles on the vehicles and fished what is normally a really good lake and only caught around 50 small bucks and one nice six between two boats - we worked really hard just for those. We put away the boats and then on the last day of vacation, got this one off our our dock at home.

Just returning the favor!!! :lol:

The Zonda or the lip grips? The Zonda is a sweet, solid, great casting reel. It's spooled with 12# sniper and sitting on a 610M/R (1/4-3/4, 10-16) and that's gonna be my Keitech rod this year. It launches a two nail "Chikubi" rigged 3.8 FAT, which weighs 10g on an Owner Twistlock Light 3/0, a looong way without a hint of backlash. That's my go to bait, so I cannot wait to give it a shot.

I got the lip grips, which are very elegantly designed and should last forever, because I think I'm allergic to the slime coat on fish. If I catch a fish and then get my fingers anywhere near my eyes they'll turn red, swell, and itch like crazy for a few hours, even if I wash my hands first. It's crazy. So hopefully I can get good enough with those to avoid touching the fish at all, which is better for them anyway. Plus they'll help with getting deep hooks out and come in handy around toothy species should I encounter any. I'm not sure what their weight limit is, but they lifted one of my big 55L tackle bags no problem.

Matching rod and reel colors is one thing, but matching your bedsheets to your tackle is going a bit far imho.

What size nail weights are you using? I want to give this a try.

:lol: Purple is a lucky color to the Japanese. That's why Megabass uses it so much on their 110's. So it makes sense to have purple sheets. =P~

I use 1/32nd oz tungsten weights. The bass pro and eagle claw ones are both great. The eagle claw ones are pagoda style and a little longer.
