A nice light carbon handle is a must. Might even knock off a few grams.

Looking at the reel schematics on my Metanium HG, the top plate is the part of the one-pieced frame which is not detachable.
Unless u are prepared to shell out on the frame of the 15' Metanium Dc just for the new ultra cool color which I am tempted to do so.

Very clever of shimano!

Why does everyone think a new core is coming? They may just do what they did with the metanium and release it state side

there will be a new core in the future....shimano has to offer something priced in between the ci4 and met which is right where the core fits in....

Aldebaran is JDM name for Core.

Why not just bring over the Aldebaran? They already brought the Conquest, Antares, and Metanium.

That's the route I bet you will take. They did it with the Metanium, Antares & Calcutta Conquest as you know. I am sure the Curado and cheaper reels will be unique to JDM or USDM. High end? I bet they just change serial numbers and bring them across, nice and easy and probably saves costs for tooling in factories etc.

No new core.... Just the Aldebaran taking its place.

The Alde looks tiny in that guy's hand! The Twinpower looks sweet.
