The truth is that I´m not impressed at all, one thing I liked about Megabass reels were ( aside from some functional upgrades ) the cosmetic changes that made them so unique, I don´t see that anymore = no longer desirable for me. 

The last Megabass reels in the Alphas platform I was willing to spring the cash were the Zonda Rosso and the Zonda Hedgehog Custom ( to complete the Zonda 68 collection ), but by the time they were available I was no longer purchasing reels, my last purchase was a SS SV ( that´s still in the box ).

Looks like once again they've went with that ill-conceived clear plastic side plate.

Reminds me of that silly gear box to demonstrate oil that you see on the counter in auto parts stores.

New monoblock. Looks like they went back to the weird looking CCC on the original monoblock. Not sure yet how I feel about the brown on the palming side plate.

The only megabass reels I've ever liked the look of were the Ryoga based ones. I would like one of them, though would never want to pay the price for it. Generally I dislike their reels appearance and their rods are really unappealing with a ridiculous collection of parts thrown onto the blank. No where near how I like to build my rods, which are very stripped down.

Could be, knowing Megabass it must be special, like farm raised rhinocerus or something like that.....:lol-045:

Your post has nothing to do with the discussion.

That post was funny, I laughed out loud.  You guys are all commenting on super high dollar reels and he throws that post in there :)
