I love my Bantam, but aside from the JDM PG model, I can't find one reason to choose it over the Metanium. The Metanium is essentially the same reel with a better spool and lighter package.

Bantam has a metal clutch return leg though.

This particular part is a hybrid plastic part in the new Meta, I took a screen shot off somewhere and posted it, everyone's seemed to have accepted it.
