Reel question

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi guys,

 

I would have a few questions about the Christmas reel 'Overlord 87':

- Can anybody buy it at Christmas?

- How much stars does it have in the shop?

- Are the repair costs above or below compared to Megara or Tagara reels (approximatelly)?

 

Thank you,

Zed

I just would like to know it, because I can't decide whether to buy a Megara now or wait for the Overlord. It seems to me now that the Overlord would be better.

So if somebody has one please let me know if it worse to wait for it, or if there is any condition to buy it on Christmas.

 

Thank you,

Z.

Overlord is a little worse Tagara, but it can take much more line and the mech is stronger.

When it is Christmas does anybody can buy Overlord or there is any kind of condition?

Do you remember how much stars (4? 5?) had it in the shop?

Thank you,

Overlords max drag is 24,5 kg, Tagara has a max drag of 26,5 kg. So its weaker when fighting a bigger fish. Eg. grass carps around a trophy size (26-28 kg) will spool the Overlord pretty easy but they will have some trouble spooling the Tagara.

Overlord holds more line and although the rated drag is lower, the mec max drag is higher than Tagara.

Overlord - 24.5 kg rated drag - 80.5 kg max drag

Tagara - 26.5 kg rated drag - 63 kg max drag

It seems to me that the Overlord is stronger reel after all, since you are not interested in the 'rated drag', since it shows only what the 'manufacturer' guarantees, e.g.: if you put a 30kg line onto these reels and set 29 stregth the lines will brake. Because the actual strength of these reels are more than 24.5 and 26.5.

So the real power is more close to the 'max drag', I think.

 

Bests,

Z.

You are overthinking this. Overlord is simply weaker than Tagara. End.

Just to point out here, the max strength of the reels on these sheets are not official RF4 numbers.

Well, since you have both, I accept your opinion, thanks!
