Well....I have a TWS Zillion. It's a year old and starting to show signs of severe use. Gears are getting sloppy and the spool release sometimes doesn't release completely. ....causing a horrendous grinding noise on a cast. Sometimes it just pops back like a flipping reel and the bait zings right back at me. Lol.
Over all, the TWS part is a huge success. Gonna get a few TWS reels on my next allotment of reels.
Tatula rods? Awesome for the money too.
