Jimmy Z, Howz it compare to the "old" Ming Yang CL series of reels?

These look to have a lot of plastic (nylon?) in them where brass is usually used. 

Do you think they will be long lasting and reliable?

kinda like the diff between ming-yang's CL-60 and an abu 6500.

if I remember correctly,the MY holds 210 yds of 20lb mono.

You got it. This is a good size, IMO, for this thing we do.

The parts that are non-metal, the idler gear, pinion keeper parts are pretty much the same in most reels of that caliber. I like the brass idler in the MY's, but it is heavier than the plastic. Both or decent and work well, IMO.

This Chaos reel is relatively new. It worked well this Fall, but only time can tell for sure.:howdy:
