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.

Do these reels (standard 103 JDM models) have a clicking drag or does it just tighten and loosen without the clicking mechanism? Did the Ito version, the Light, or the Ringa versions have any difference in drag? Thanks!
No clicking drag star, unless you add the clicky conversion kit from The Tackle Trap. Then you need another star that works with the click mechanism. And no, the star wont have any play in it when it is backed off. The threaded hub is modular with the star part. The drag star on the Tatula, Tat CT, Tat SV and Zillion SV TW all are held with a spring and float on the nut that actually applies pressure to the drag washers. That type of drag star will have play if you press firmly in towards the reel, much the same as most current Shimano reels.
Try not to let your mind wander. It is much too small to be outside unsupervised.
Ok...so that's good about the non-clicking drag star. Onto the other part...the one I received today (CV-Z 103) doesn't have any play in the star drag when tightened or slightly tightened, but just before being fully backed off (really loose), there is some side-to-side wobble. Any idea what could/would be causing this? I wish I could post a video to show what I mean.

What model do you have of the Millionaire...a 103 or the USD market ones? Thanks!
