Ive been thinking about getting one of these for swimbaits and was wondering what experience you all have had with them or should I save up and get a Luna? Ill be throwing 2+ oz baits with it.

ive got a smaller one, and has been really good to me for the 4-5 years ive had it. smooth, easy drag, and casting distance with this thing is pretty darn good. only bad thing ive had with it is the handle pads arnt great, i put some of those pro grips on it and it feels a lot better.

here is a link to a pretty in depth review on this reel:

I have a CV-Z 253.  The only thing was that I had to upgrade the drags on it to get some more power out of it.  Like KY said, they cast great.  I use mine for Z-plugs, Hudds, In-line Ospray's, 8" Lunker Punkers, my 2x4, pretty much every full size swimbait I use.  You'll be happy with it.  There are a couple of big bait guys on here that really like the Luna.

Which Milionaire are you considering? There is a world of difference between the Millionaire S and the CVX, CVZ models.

I have no clue what those are :-[. Ill do some research and post in a few minutes with what Ive found.

The CV X is looking pretty good. 159.00 is about as much as Id want to pay but at that range Id be close enough to getting a Luna.

Oh. I must have read an old review. Ill probably just suck it up and get a Luna. I dont want to have to buy a better reel in the future.

The CV X and CV Z are discontinued. The Luna replaced the CV Z and there is no replacement for the CV X.

The St. Croix Avid casting reels are CV-Z's in the CV-X colors.  You can still get them direct from St. Croix.
