i was excited about the new Freams 2011, it was interesting to see the big D putting in so much into their entry R4 model. Features i like:
- Zaion material construction, making the reel light
- Drag Specs
- Air rotor, reduced weight, looks great! (i would like Daiwa to come up with a new Branzino utilizing the air rotor.. non magseal or silly-con seal pls, unless its easy to self service)
Like some inputs:
1 Can someone kindly post the schematics of the new Freams or the link to 1?
2 Spool - is there a white color bush below the stack of UTD drag washers? (tot i see 1, not the bushing on the shaft)
3 Frame - The silver chrome Engine Plate, do you think its functional or just cosmetics? The Certate, Saltiga engine plates have screws holding the engine plates, supporting? the bearing to the body, the freams?
4 Silent Oscilation - built in?
5 Price point? Good or look elsewhere for a better reel at its price?
your thoughts about the 2011 MiC Freams appreciated.
