I've always liked the hidden purple plate on the backside of the magnets on the Zonda reels. I think it reads "MEGABASS MAGNERIDE BRAKE SYSTEM"

Looks good LowRange!
Thanks. My whole venture into tuning an Abu ended up costing a lot more than I anticipated but I had fun long story short:

I picked up a used Fanatista Deez rod from bass.co.jp because I was actually after a new Jackson Super Ttricker they had and they can ship two rods in one tube for the same price. I then used this as a excuse to pick up an Abu reel to throw blue colored tuning parts at. I always wanted to tune up a Revo with ZPI parts. There are just so many parts for those reels.

I ended up with a used 3rd gen Revo Elite IB with the dual aluminum side plates and chrome finish. I went with this one to see what the high end Doyo Coba platform is all about. I've been curios about high end Doyos for years. I threw both aliexpress and hedgehog blue parts on it and found a blue 12 gram Abu Deez IVCB spool in ebay as part of a kit with spool and tension knob. I just needed to convert the palming plate to the IVCB centrifugal race from the factory Doyo dual brake and I was done.

This lead to finding a 3rd gen MGX for a little under $100 from bass.co.jp to rob the centrifugal race out of which seemed like a no brainer. Now I can use some of the parts I had laying around and pick up an aliexpress spool too to convert the MGX into a BFs reel on the cheap. Well that did't quite work out as well as I had hoped and I had to spend an additional $100 for one of the last purple Avail spools that will fit this narrow frame 3rd gen reel. I guess there are both narrow spool and wide spool 3rd gens. I ended up $50 over budet on the MGX and it is still not done but it looks good so far. The Elite IB IVCB turned into a money pit but it was fun and I like the reel and rod a great deal.

I try to stay away from these as they can get addicting way too quick but I saw this one and just had to have it this one's called Purple Rain and it matches perfectly with my purple hyuga's and reel setups 8-) such a playful fun little colorway I'll try to get some shots of it in the sun but I'm like a vampire early this morning and don't want to quite get vaporized by the Arizona Sun :lol:

Can't get enough of that Hyuga and Daiwa purple together. I'm really thinking about picking up another Hyuga. Still holding out for re-release of the Levantes.

Got the $58 T3 MX in from bass.co.jp. Stole the purple parts off it for my SS SV105.

5 stars. This is some of the best/cleanest custom work I’ve seen.
