My mystery shimano reel

Recommended Posts

Hey all, this is my first post and I need the help from all the reel and shimano junkies out there,  recently bought this shimano reel as a fishing challenge. I didn’t do any looking into for this reel and since buying it I haven’t been able to find much about it. I was wondering if anyone has used one or owns one and could tell me anything about it, it’s a Shimano scorpion metanium XT. From all I could find I guess it was made from 99-04. 

Thanks all, looking forward to hear from you!

Should be a fine piece of kit IMHO. I have a JDM Scorpion DC that I love.

It is the Japanese version of the Chronarch 100SF.  I have one that is essentially NIB.  They were a great reel at the time and still are today.  Find an old school G. Loomis MBR and match it up and you should be in business!
