What's the little lever over the handle on the not-so-low low-profile reels?

Dang, that TD Z Ito is dead sexy....

And what's wrong with bein' a lefty?   ;) I can't reel one of those things with my right hand, have to flip it over and reel backwards.  ;D

I feel like I need to go to FTA - Fishing Tackle Anonymous. ;D

What is the knob material on the TD-Z Ito and millionaire?

Compressed cork covered in clear plastic.  Daiwa sells those grips.  I have a few on some of my reels.  They look great!

I don't like the bling and they are are the wrong brand!    :;)

Seriously, I prefer the polished chrome.

Here's the side-by-side comparison of two VERY comparable reels:

I like the chrome ones too.  If I knew Robert was out looking for his favorite lefty's xmas present already,...I would have dropped a few hints.  It's ok though, seems he knows what I like (the TD-Z matches my Comanche)

;) ;D

Micropterus............you be one funny dude.

Keep it up and you'll qualify for mook status.

Here's the side-by-side comparison of two VERY comparable reels:

Mr RW.  I have great respect for your opinions but how can you possibly call two reels with nearly a three ounce weight difference.

VERY comparable (emphasis yours) escapes me.

Not even close dude.   We're talking the streamlined precision of a Ferrari v. the obese luxury of a Sedan de Ville.

Robert,  I want that Type R and I want it NOW!!!!!!!!!!!  (Impulse control anyone?)

Please provide purchasing details.

I have no doubt those are great reels, but i'm not in love with the colors either.  The grips are very cool though.

Weird review... 9.00 vs. 9.08 for the Calais, but the Calais didn't get any deduction for being a brick.   9.1ozs!?

I'm becoming a big fan of japan reels....I like the bling bling on those things...

I just don't like the price tag on them.

The TD won with 9.08. The Calais had the 9.0.

I'll pass.

Those reels look like a bread box with a handle on them.

So what's the deal redline? Did you buy them or what? It's been about 11 hours since you posted some new $15,000 fishing gear purchase.  ;) You know you want to.
