Shimano 14Scorpion HG
« on: September 09, 2018, 07:14:00 PM »

I got this reel a few months back to play with. Not being a fan of what Shimano has been producing recently, I decided to grab one of these since I found it for a good price. I played with the Citica I to get a feel for the platform, and am glad I grabbed the Scorpion, as its a really refined machine.

I havent dont anything to the reel, I just wanted to fish it straight out of the box. Lets be honest, its a JDM counterpart, so its already got the better spool bearings. The only thing I did was change the silver handle  (which didnt match the rest of the reel) to a black one. I spooled the reel with 50lb Maxcuatro, and its a swimbait slinging machine. Very smooth on the retrieve, and a simple swab of oil on the brake pipe made it a rocket to cast.

So far Im pretty happy and impressed with the overall looks and performance of the reel. Drag is smooth and tight, no slop in the mechanics, and feedback is very snappy.

Looks awesome! The monkey is around the corner... I keep feeding it "smalls" to keep it content, but one day it's gonna want a JDM reel.
