Cranking Reel

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.

Not that I know, If you are lefty and you can get them easily here. Maybe they have discontinued the old model.

Just get the Red Ryoga in August.

Are you in the US??? If you have the new one, if there enough of a benefit to hunt for the "red" version over the 2018 Ryoga??? Isn't one of the Ryoga variants designed with a 7 speed gear ratio for snake head fishing??? I can't even catch a 5lb'er right now, not sure why I am asking about reels this strong...

It is not difficult at all to find lefty in Malaysia.
I don't think you need a red Ryoga for big mouth bass and I bought the red Ryoga cause I thought I wouldn't be able to get the old model Ryoga anymore but I was lucky to find the brand New old model silver Ryoga 6.3:1.

The Red Ryoga is 7.1:1 ratio if I am not mistaken and i haven't decided to use it. Many anglers love to use high gear ratio reels but I prefer 6.3:1.

5lb giant snake-head is still a juvenile.

Hope it helps.

I'd like to know how the aluminum gears hold up to a high pressure situation like cranking, especially deep cranking. So far my XH feels great and I would consider lower gear ratios if I knew they'd hold tough.

Is gear material really so important in our small fishing reels that suffer limited punishment? I mean, aluminium is used in many circumstances where toughness seems to be more important, e.g. From bicycles / crankset to spacecrafts.
I ask because I have never had an issue with aluminium gears...not yet at least...

The Red Ryoga also uses the gearbox from a Ryoga BJ and has thicker gears and stronger drag and is quite a bit heavier than the original 1016 ryoga. have a close look and you will see the gear case side plate of the red ryoga is wider than the original.
Also the red ryoga was a Daiwa South East Asia only release.

The Red Ryoga is a 1016SV, the gear box is from a 1012BJ

I haven't either, just seems to be a worry point and has spread to me. In fact, my SS/SV and Steez A are two of if not my 2 smoothest reels. As much as I fish (way less than I wish) I doubt even my 2 Revo spinning reels with aluminum gears will go out. Punishment is a key word, my reels see very little of that, gears could probably be plastic as many big fish as I catch.
