I did direct comparison on my T3 MX vs ZILLION SV TW using same rod, same lure and same spool + line (spool interchangable between Zillion SV & T3), T3 mx set at long cast and it's bombing farther than ZILLION, by obvious margin (no measurement taken though, only estimation by using multicolors line - 10m each color). This comparison are using setup as below:
Rod: Surecatch Surebite 612MH
Spool: Zillion SV spool
Line: 20lb Proberos Multicolor x4 braided
leader: 30lb FC coated Kastking
Lure: 13g Silver spoon
magnetic setup: Zillion at #4, T3 at #0 with magforce 3d at Long Cast. Yep, T3 brake at #0. result?
cast distance range: Zillion SV 45m +/-, T3 MX 55m +/-
so far since I've never set Magforce 3D on T3 MX to other setup except Long Cast, as I don't see requirement for that (for skipping, I use same setup as overhead/side cast and only using extra thumb braking to control spool rotation - to minimize unnecessary adjustment on braking). for lure weight in the picture above, casting distance is somewhere around 20m max base on my estimation magforce 3d set at long cast and magnetic set at #6, +-1 depend on wind condition
