Any 2020 Shimano reel leaks.....

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.

I think it would have to be? Since the frame is solid aluminum I am not sure where else they could put the dial aside from that one removable "sideplate" piece of the frame.
I think so too. They could make some sort of cutout in the frame but then the dial would have to stay in while the DC unit can be taken off and that would make things even more complicated.

What the reel test guy didn’t point out - the front opening of that new bantam variant cuts way deeper into the frame. So we have a whole new frame coming in? Still DC? I’d prefer a pike-sized bantam :D
Check 3:30 of the video he mentions about the top of the frame being extended out.

The spool looks like the one on the Scorpion DC. I would assume this is a JDM only reel.

didnt think of a bantam xt. so from the video on youtube that was posted here that reel would more than likely be a bantam variant than the metanium i would think. but not a bantam dc unless they have changed dial locations somehow.

Doesn't XT just mean external SVS Infinity braking?
