Bantam MGL Who has their hands on one?

Reels are the hottest topic for TackleTour. Everyone wants to know what the latest and greatest is and how they compare to the old guard. What's the best for light stuff, or what's your suggestion for heavy cover. Do we really need different retrieve ratios? It's all in here.

It's a little heavier, but palms better and feels like a quality reel. Needless to say, I sold the metanium and chronarch. Their only advantage is they are lighter in weight.


Awesome! Thank you!

Didn't want to start a whole new thread, but anyone debating about waiting might wanna look into this...

Lists micro module and all Curado specs, so i guess it is coming... Also says it can cast 5-8gram lures with the right setting...
