For $928 its all yours. I read the manual and apparently this reel is so incredible that bass only :)over 8 pounds magically appear on your hook regardless of the bait choice on every single cast. I think I will pick one up for myself.

I do believe we have unlocked the secrets of bass fishing. And here it was in Japan all of this time.

Over 7 oz, too heavy and too bulky.

Very nice looking reel though.

If 7oz for a round reel is too heavy for you, then you need to lift some weights. And it may not be a Steez or Core but I would rather have it than either of those if I needed something that could actually hold a substantial amount of heavy line.

The average for most low pro bait casters is over 7oz! I am amazed by people who think that 1oz matters in a reel!!! Guess they can't all be Steez or Cores!

It's kind of pretty but it doesn't do anything for me, and I hate the handle.  Sure does look solidly built though.  Is there any plastic on or in it AT ALL??

That = Pretty.

I = Poor.

Does this come with a warranty?

if it's JDM then probably not

most JDM stuffs warranties are only valid for use in japan

Looks cool but I would rather have an ito monoblock, or a ize millionaire.

This is another, even more insanely priced version, of those reels. Based on the original Daiwa Millionaire, which Daiwa, in their infinite wisdom, discontinued.

I have three Millionaire CV-X reels, which I really like. I've been turning mine into my own version of these more expensive reels.

The original reels had three bearings plus the anti-reverse bearing. I removed all the bushings and installed new bearings; outer pinion gear bearing, drive shaft bearing, two bearings on the level-wind, and added a 4 bearing TD-Z handle. 11+1 bearings now. Also installed Carbontex drag washers, and lapped and polished stainless drag washers.

Got the Dremel out and polished all moving and contact points. Tackle Tour did an article on super tuning a SOL. The Millionaire internals are virtually identical, so I just followed their directions.

These three reels are smooth, quiet, long-casting machines.

Did all that last winter while the water was hard. The only thing left to do is this winter's project; install light weight GIGAS spools and new spool bearings.

I'm hoping for a bit better casting performance after the spool and bearing upgrades.

I'm betting mine perform nearly as well as the high dollar JDM versions. They just don't look as cool, and are still quite a bit heavier. They are also considerably cheaper.

I think they originally were 9.5 ounces. The TD-Z handles are magnesium, so I saved some weight there. By replacing bushings with bearings, I added some weight, so it's probably a wash. They may even be just a bit heavier.

Next project; super tune my Fuegos.

This is a fun thing to do in the winter.

Com'on Dan and Dink, its not all about weight or line cap., sometimes its just about personal preference.  I just like the low profile reels better than the round style.

Upgrade the retrieve ratio to 6:3.1 and you'll have a really monster!

That's fine and all but don't you ever throw heavy line? You can't throw a swimbait on a Core or a Steez.

Those aren't real swimbaits. I understand that you don't need a reel with high capacity because from what I gather you fish local ponds, correct? So you probably don't need a whole lot of variety as far as what types of lures and techniques you need to use. Those of us who fish different bodies of waters, including large bodies of water, need to be able to throw different techniques and baits, some of which are easier to throw on a big reel with lots of line capacity.

That reel only holds 70 yds of 14lb line.

Flipping, pitching....sure. Throwing a spinnerbait? Sure, why not.

Throwing a swimbait with that reel and 14lb line = FAIL. I would say you could probably get away with it using a fresh spool of line (maybe, and not throwing it very far), but after a couple break offs or re-ties, there just wont be enough line left.
