I had the Viento for at least 4 years and had a Megaforce for a while. I had the Viento on every rod and thought it was a good reel, but I never found a technique that was really improved with the twiching bar. The Megaforce is a little faster reel and I found that if you rapidly press on the twiching bar, you could make a soft body frog walk the dog perfectly (the Viento was too slow in ratio for this). Unfortunately, the Megaforce is not as good of a reel as the Viento is. Therefore, if Daiwa made a high ratio reel at the same quality as the Viento, then you would have the perfect soft bodied frog reel, but as it stands now, the twitching bar is a novelty.

I had the Megaforce for a while and it's an awesome reel for 60 dollars. Casts great and is very smooth for a 60 dollar reel, but the twitchin bar broke on mine making the whole reel unable to be used. All the twitchin bar does is add unnecessary weight to the reel.

I serouisly advise you stay away from this reel. I had one and the twitchin bar brake so I returned it. In less the a week the other one broke. I've also seen to other people at our local dicks return there's for the same problem. It also has a VERY WEEK DRAG! Your a ton better off lookin on the flea market here or on ebay for a used Citica 200E for 80-100$. You proably could find some new for 100$.
