Anyone have/use these reels?

Recommended Posts

Redlinerobert turned me onto this site and I wish he hadn't because now it's gonna cost me money.  I haven't done any research on these 2 reels yet but was wondering if anyone on here has experience with them.  I'm curious about them and considering buying one and teaming it with a Megabass rod.   Thanks for any input.

The Zillion is a great looking reel but seems a bit heavy for the money.  The Mg is sweet but is it worth the extra $ over the US model??  I'm looking at the Daiwa Alphas for myself.  Pretty light, pretty good value, pretty color.

I recently bought a pre-loved Metanium from Robert with a tune-up from

ReelMech. It's MUCH lighter than my Calais and comparable in terms of

smoothness. Since it's already "broken-in", I'm pretty sure it is what it is.

My rating is a Dead Solid 10.

My HLC just came in.  Absolutely without a doubt my favorite reel from ALL the reels that I have.  I'm ordering an EverGreen Amazon Flip for that reel.

Sorry for the added expenditures buddy. ;)

It could have been worse ...... you could have convinced him to buy a Lambo.

That is actually a decent price on that reel.  I would do it if I were you.

I'm very curious to hear your reviews on it.  Congrats on making a choice.  Let me know how it compares to the HLC as far as smoothness and precision go.
