So what's your thoughts on this reel(besides the pinion issue) after having it in hand and digging through it?
I think it is a beautiful and functional reel. Simplistic in nature really. It uses the Steez SV TW style cam plate, which I found surprising given the lack of T Wing. The Micro gearing is very nice. It has a very fluid connected feel. The reel is built to be tough yet refined, and I think Daiwa hit it square on the head with this one.
When you had the reel apart did you see anything that would indicate that the new Ryoga gears will fit the old Ryoga?
