I was just thinking this morning about my first baitcaster, a Diawa Millionaire I purchased almost 40 years ago.  Back then (in yankeeland) no one was using baitcasters, but I was a BASS and tournament junkie so I spent a fortune (at the time, $54) for it.  A thousand backlashes later, and I knew I'd never go back to spincasting.  I see that they actually have a modernized version and it's very tempting.  The only thing holding me back is that it takes about a million yards of line to fill it.

 

Anyone use the Millionaire?

The first bc reel my dad owned was a millionaire 5B. His second one was a 5HS which he bought a couple of months later. I remember that 5B being a workhorse.

The Ryoga holds less line.  Maybe you'd never consider going back to a Millionaire after using one.  :D

They actually make 100 size Millionaires, I think they are JDM only but definitely bass size. They cost a little more than the standard Millionaire though.

I see that I spelled Daiwa wrong.

I'll bet I would fall in love with the Ryoga if someone with more money than me gave me one.  I don't think I would spend that much money on a reel even if I could afford it.
