No way, it's going to be around Alphas Air money. MSRP is only 35000 yen. Aldebaran is 46000


That's not bad then. I'm not sure where I go my number from.

Yes both mine. One will go to a great friend of mine. The other will stay in the lineup, once its converted to ZPI mag braking.

Those look really nice, mint condition? The lefty looks like the knobs haven't even been touched! I just purchased a slightly used V2, should be a fun reel.

A few battle scars, but overall nice. 100% complete too.

Very nice Booty! Is it the same DC breaking profile as the Current Met DC? Anything jump out to you about the reel as a strong plush or minus?

Thank You for the Woodrow Wilson! I've been eyeballing this sucker hard. Keep us posted once you've taken her out for a spin.

Seems very well made, trademark shimano smoothness. As you can see the spool was modified to make it a 100 capacity. It seems to be a similiar IDC5 as the Met DC. Outside dial has the A, then 4, 3, 2, 1 for the lure weights. You have to remove the sideplate all the way to change the line setting. Ive seem a couple of videos on it already, makes the DC whine. Spool is 18 gram. Wont be able to fish it till this weekend. I hope it cast better than my other Scorpion DC

Nice! Nothing wrong with a few marks, makes it easier to start using them!
