Recommended Posts

I haven't seen the new Metanium in person. Just curious which one palms better?

The core is smaller & palms slightly easier.

I am wanting a Aldebaran MG7 paired up with a Loomis CR722 for walk the dog. That should be a real nice combo.

I just got my metanium XG from TW 2 days ago paired it up with a GLX and couldn't be happier! It's basically a core on steroids and IMO it palms better than the 100MG7 I have. I have pretty big hands though.

The new Metanium palms great, its low and long, but the Core50 is just perfect ergonomically in my hands. They are very close in performance but the Metanium casts farther.

Yes this is true however for those considering buying the core I would wait for those to go on discount which should be soon because there phasing the cores here pretty soon. I just couldn't justify the $300+ price tag for a reel that will be obsolete in another year but to each there own. Just my 2 cents

i thought about this and I do love the SVS Infinity braking system on the Metanium.

I dont think the core will be "obsolete" in a year or two. Its still an amazing reel and a new reel is'nt going to suddenly change that just because it has a couple new features. That being said I do really like the metanium and I think you would be happy with either reel. One thing to note is the handle length, the metanium has longer handle. Both are excellent choices and would work well for that application.

I certainly don't mean obsolete as in people aren't going to use them because they certainly will I have two cores and plan on keeping them in use for years to come however if I was in the market for a new reel and was going to be dropping $300+ the metanium is a legit contender. All I'm saying is I would want something new and modern with all the bells and whistles. I had the chance to cast the metanium in my backyard with snow and ice still on the ground LOL and the SVS is something incredible. Just keep that in mind.

I have an Antares HG with the SVS Infinity braking system. I do agree that it's incredible and I do love the aspect of fine tuning that it offers.
