I don´t own an Aegis but I do know the equivalent, it´s a more modern and refined version of the Daiwa Revros ( which I own ), there are some differences, the Revros is aluminium, the Aegis is Zaion ( another fancy name for carbon composite ) which is not bad.

 

2004 indicate 2 things, it´s a 2000 size reel, and it´s a shallow spool version for PE ( braided, 30lbs or less  ) or thin monofilament ( 6lb test or less ), there´s a cool feature, the spool has a small depression in the middle so when you tie your anchor knot it can fit in it, great for braided line, that way it won´t slip.

 

As I said, I don´t own an Aegis, I own a Revros and it has become one of my favorite reels, it´s silky smooth, the drag is fluid and responsive.

TW put the JDM Certate on sale as part of their 25 days of Christmas deal, so I bought a 2004 model. If I hadn't purchased that reel, I would have ordered an Aegis. I'd been looking at the Aegis for a couple weeks and hadn't pulled the trigger.

The Certate is a much better reel than the Aegis.

X2. But the Aegis is still a top notch spinning reel. But it is kind of like comparing a Stradic to a Stella.

 I knew that, and didn't want to spend that much on a finesse spinning reel, which will see limited use in my game. The Aegis fit what I had in mind to spend. TW's sale made the Certate a no-brainer.

Yup, I also saw that sale, was tempted to but, this time TheBaitMonkey´s powers weren´t powerful enough .......just to make me purchase something else a few minutes later. The never ending story ..... :dazed-7:

 Ain't it da truth? I sort of wish I had bought two. I've been completely impressed with the Certate.
