In testimony to the amount of effort that went into this reel, the Megaroyal Plus was in design for a full two years before Cabela’s felt ready to bring it to market. The series has left- and right-handed models in the 100 size, and a larger 200 size (20-pound-test line class) available only with right-handed crank. The 200 also features a spool clicker control. The line guides and spools, parts that undergo perpetual line friction, are coated with titanium to make a smooth, abrasion-resistant surface. The MRP 100 we used was not among the lightest, but the reel exuded toughness, cast well and was super smooth. It’s a high-end reel with a good price and a 60-day return policy.
