Very nice! I especially like that murdered out look with the silver star and red knobs. Sick! Is that a custom paint job?

Yes It’s grand piano black. It’s the only custom painted reel I have left
It’s basically a Type R. The other two sport original gears but all other upgrades. One has a PE special spool and the other ize spool

They look great! That PE special is one sweet looking real. Love that JDM SH picture as well; wet, muddy, dinged up. A true workhorse!

Haha, thanks! It's my only Zillion now that I sold my beloved Type R. I'll let you know if I ever decide to part ways with it.
