Just because a reel is heavier or lighter doesn't inspire confidence in me. That old 308 I could bet the farm on, flawless little reel, well flawless in my mind!
    The point is when you make 2000 casts a day every gram matters. If you have never had a top of the line JDM reel you have no clue how well made they are.

    To be fair, Shimano Soare Ci4+ 500S is 2 g lighter... With that said, 500 size has been removed from the new Soare XR. Speaking of which – looks like it will be one sweet reel for a decent price.

    That's true...have to admit though an 11 bearing reel at the weight of the Zenon 1000 is pretty impressive and while I have never had a Zenon in my hands no doubt in my mind it is a better reel than the Soare. I had my mind set on the Zenon 1000S but since they just teased with the video of the Presso 2021 reel I will have to take a very serious look at it.

    I can't compare the two, so I won't speak to that. I was of course speaking only to the weight. Have been using both Vanquish 1000SSSPG and Luvias Airity 1000S-P, and trying Zenon 1000S is not high on my list, but that of course can change.

    Since we're speculating though: in that video the body of the new Presso looks a lot like that of the 20 Luvias.

    Your right I don't, never had one of those reels. But then I have never known the first person that makes 2000 cast's a day, I think that just over 4 cast's per min on 8 hrs of fishing!

    Don up until about 5 years ago I would fish 5 days a week….sunup until sundown. No telling how many casts I would make…..the point is I cast a lot. As I have aged I am down to maybe 3 days a week and 4….5 hours on the water max. Since I only cast and retrieve I want to keep it as light as possible. I would never buy a reel just because it is light…it has to be high quality and light. I’m laying here in a hospital bed with a new left knee…already have a new right knee and hip…got a spinal repair last year…..both rotator cuffs repaired….and carpal tunnel surgery on both wrist. If all goes well my fishing time may increase…my hope anyway. But regardless I will keep my my gear as light as I can….just makes it better for me.

    Regards

    Shoot….if I had a Vanquish and an Airity I don’t think I’d be looking at the Zenon either…..LOL.

    What was the last run of the Presso reels 2017 or 2018? Speaking of the Presso 1025 Limited to be exact. Are there any rumors of when if ever they are going to make a new version ? Scott

    I am all to familiar with a couple of those problems and don't envy you at all. left roto cuff had to be repaired, left knee replaced and right knee on the way out now. But with these little rods and reels we are talking very few ounces! If an ounce makes a difference to you I think I could understand it. When I tore my roto cuff I couldn't lift my arm up to put the truck key in the ignition. Recovery took quite a good time better than I was told. I could not have made one cast a day at that time but, those are special case's! Separated my pelvis in a horse wreak and cracked the back of it all over, can't get my leg's up enough to get on a horse anymore and trouble going up and down stairs but again, special case! To get down on weight in pretty much anything takes compromise's. But then no idea how much to get down a mere once or two. But if that light is what you need to keep going I think I'd look for it also! With you problems I just couldn't see you casting 500 times a day let alone 2000!
