I have several Metaniums and they are nice but well over $300. The best reels I have for under $300 is the Chronarch 150, I think they are around $280.

Have yโ€™all ordered any of these? I just looked at them and was curious if there are any issues ordering from Japan? Sweet deal if legit!

I have bought about 10+ reels from Japan last few months and they are surprisingly fast if you order one on Monday it will be here by Saturday. Never had a issue with it.

I got mine at Cabelas Ft Worth. I think it was about 279 closeout , right place at the right time. That was about a year ago and if I'm not mistaken mine is not the latest and greatest mgl. It is awesome , did not know what a really nice reel felt like until that one.

EDIT ....mine is a Chronarch not metanuim. Sorry about that.

I, personally, can justify spending up to $150 on a Revo SX. I can't justify spending much more than that. I can't imagine any $300 reel being twice as good as many $150 reels out there. I've tried a handfull over the years, but have decided, I'd rather have 2 Revo SX's than a single $300 reel.

I used to think the same way until I got my hands on a Bantam MGL. Now I own 3 of them and slowly weeding out my $150-200 reels to replace with more.
