Anybody got one ?

 

Not that I "need" one but for whatever reason it caught my eye, it's very reasonably priced too ( 2,600 Mex vs 3,300 for a Tatula ) and looks nice.

You can stick one of those 10 gram DIY spools in it to make it a budget finesse caster I guess.  You might be able to get the spool and reel for $100 us assiming the reel can be had for $70.

Hmmmm, why would I want to do that ? Got 3 Pixies, Alphas Type F, Alphas Itö, Alphas R Edition, 2 TDZ 105H, Zonda 68, SS SV, Scorpion 1000 Mg and Chronarch 50 Mg, those are plenty finesse baitcasters; btw, 2,600 Mex aren't 70 US.

So......looks like a $100 reel here costs you $140 US in Mexico.  Is that correct?  Sucks if that is the case.

 

BTW, specs say a precision machined aluminum frame, but doesn't mention side plates so I assume they are made from something other than aluminum...or any metal.  Have alternate materials reached the point where we don't need to worry about flexing/alignment?

Yup, import taxes ( 17% ) and sales tax ( 16% ) rise the cost heavily, the only good part is that in orders above $100 from that vendor I get free shipping, incredibly enough, I have purchased even more expensive reels from Japan and not paid import taxes.

Yeah, I know, the funny thing is that I haven't felt the need to purchase reels in at least two or three years, my last purchase was a SS SV.
