It's nice, but somebody put the handle on the wrong side.  :)

There is at least 1 JDM Revo in the States.  Not the one Raul has shown us, however.  Somewhat less, modded, shall we say?

I suppose they must also have them with the handle where God meant it to be.  :)

Thats a bad looking reel right there... so how much does 55,000 yen equate to be in US? lol

The spool and handle are nice, but other than that is just a revo (not that there is anything wrong with that  :))   The Pfluegur guys should be excited as well....those aftermarket parts probably fit their reels  :).

C 'mon Natural, saying that it 's just a Revo is like saying that a Mörrum SX AE74 is just a 1600C Mörrum.

Well, at least this one is 300 bones less than a Mörrum.  :)

Au contraire, mon frere.  Some of the bearings are upgraded, the drive and pinion gears are upgraded, two other gears are upgraded and one other thing that is slipping my mind at the moment but it's shown on the video.

Yup, it 's like your stock Mustang vs a Roush or a Saleen or a Porsche vs a RUF. :)

And the braking system is improved to what?  

I'll say one thing, it looks like the spool can't hold much more than 60 yds of line or so.  Just less backlash to pick out.   :)

I concede.  I didn't look it up; just commenting on what I saw.  Upgraded gears is a suprising mod; most spin-off reels just sport an upgraded spool, handle, and paint job.  Still not worth $500 bones, but those crazy japanese will pay it though.

Uhhhh, let 's see

Daiwa Zillion limited edition $300

TDZ spool $80

That makes 380 ........ man you getting close and that 's without the handle and the cork knobs.

I should say 'I' wouldn't pay $500 bones for it, but from a manufacturing standpoint....fabricating gears and such isn't easy or inexpensive work, so they aren't out of line asking that for it in today's market I suppose.

The Japan limited thing is out of control IMHO; the Japan limited zillion has a $280 handle!
