Few Daiwa baitcasters are as loved or have such a revered reputation as the Zillion. November sees the latest version of this famous reel hit Australian shores. Want to know more about the new pimped Zilion then check out the Daiwa Australia page, or if you want to see the reel in action and hear was the US bass pros have to say then take a look of the clip below.
It’s no secret that I love my Steezes, and the Steez baitcaster has been my favourite ever since I used one, and while I’ve had and used plenty of others Daiwa baitcasters (T3, Alphas, PX 68, Tatula, Zonda, Zillion, TDZ, etc) my thoughts generally come back to Steez, and what ever I’m using generally gets compared to the Steez in terms of looks, feel and performance.
While I love the Steez dearly the one thing I always felt was missing from the Steez family was a slow speed model. A slow speed baitcaster I might add has been hard to get in JDM reels in recent years since Japan developed a taste for hi-speed bait finesse reels.
