Daiwa Zillion or Shimano 51MG


Recommended Posts

I have both Shimano and Daiwa reels and have experienced zero trouble with both makes to date. I have the older Curado Superfree and a Daiwa Alphas. Gameover, another reel you might consider is the Daiwa Alphas Type-F (Freshwater tuned version). This Type-F, freshwater version Alphas has 2 more ball bearing at handle and make the total to 8+1 to offer the smoothest cranking, and also reduced some weight from the original Alphas. Of course it depends what you want the reel for. Since I fish ultra clear water it works great and is light enough it does not wear me out casting. The small body reel Alphas-F targets finesse fishing. In the technique, anglers use 6-12lb test lines, to fish at water with many anglers. The reel also serves well for pitching and flipping with 20-30lb test lines, as the super low profile body offers the comfort in palm, as well as the light weight help your wrist.

I hear good things about the Zillion and 51MG also. Now that there are so many good reels on the market it makes it hard to choose on us finically challenged bass fishermen..

Before you jump on the Chronarch consider in getting an the import Metanium XT:

1.- You get 84 mm handle instead ob stock 80 mm

2.- half ounce lighter

3.- clicking tension knob adjustment

4.- 70 dollars LESS and free shipping from GinRinPeche e-bay.

And it 's basically the same reel.

I made my decision, im going with the Shimano Chronarch B (CH101B). Its going on my Loomis IMX PR844C. Thanks for all the great info and suggestions guys.

Congrats on the reel. You must have found a new job quickly.

If youd a read the thread youd know where its coming from, you and fourbizzle need to get off my back all you guys do is spam threads I make and/or reply to trying to act like you know just so much about me when you know not a thing, for the last time grow up.. go learn how to fish or something and stop instigating with me.

Sometimes a person has to deal with the consequences of being less than truthfull.  In my estimation you have gotten off easy on these boards, and are continuing along unabated as if nothing has happened.  I will continue to gently remind readers of your posts, that you are less than honest.    As far as learning how to fish is concerned...  You are right, I don't have nearly the accumen that you do when it comes to speaking intelligently about various lure manufacturers, model numbers, material specifics etc.  I don't quote company add copy when talking about lures either.  What I DO, however, is share dozens of pictures of bass with the members when I have a reason or opportunity to post one.

The Zillion is a re-vamped version of the old TDZ series reels

Really???   Only six ball bearings in the zillion vs 11 in the TD-Z and a weight of 8.6 oz's vs the Z's 6.2  

Are you sure you didn't mean the Steez?

I handled a Daiwa Zillion and in NO WAY was it comparable to the "old" TD-Z

I own 4 TD-Z's.  I hope they last forever.
