Reviews out on new 2018 Ryoga?

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.

Does anyone happen to know how much larger physically the 1520 is versus the 1016?

Thanks in advance!

How hard is it to disassemble?

For people curious about 1016/1520 size difference, have you seen the post by matrix on page 3 of this thread?
If photos are better, I have added som size comparisons in this post. 1520 is the lower/left reel.
Cheers Michael

Those are some of the most beautiful reels, I really hate that only low profiles lead the market. Would be awesome to see some more $200-$350 round reels out there. Like a Zillion class Ryoga with a cast aluminum frame, Zaion sideplates, regular gears, etc. Wouldn't make sense though to cut the market from their flagship model though so I'm sure we'll never see anything like that, but it's nice to day dream...
