Can anyone else expound on the differences between the Z-Rough and the Z-Preme, other than cost?

The z rough is no frills is all - minus the box and an extra spool.
The reels are exactly the same
$939 bucks or $1200.
Email Rob if you have questions.

An extra spool goes for $300 - which explains the price difference.

I could be wrong but isn't the finish different on the Rough ??

The finish: The machined aluminum frame, spool, rotor and foot are coated (Z-Coat) with a special military spec. finish altered slightly to our own specification. It is ultra hard and has five times the corrosion resistance of other high end reels in the market.

The z-preme

So I bought a Penn 705 on that auction site and a bailless kit from penn parts.com and for 75 bucks Ive got a MP reel... Which by the way I freaking Love... Not a single wind knot and the learning curve wasnt all that bad, even in the dark... I 100% reccomend anyone thinking about going with an MP do it... Thanks to all the advice from this thread, I have a reel I would have never thought to buy that I absolutely love... Thanks guys
Now on to the big question... where in the hell can I get a bailless kit for the 710 / 711??? Nothing on penn parts and I rarely hear these reels mentioned anywhere

Try Ebay for the 710 kit Bryan. sometimes theres a few of the buy sell merchants put up individual penn parts for sale. The price goes way up however.

The Zeebass
The supreme kit is still available. And a semi automatic bail is available this December.

I made an inquiry to Rob asking about the issue with sand getting in under the drag knob on some reels and whether the left handed reel / kit will be available.
Rob says that they are refining the left hand reel over the winter months and plan to have them at the upcoming shows.

"The drag knob can be filled with rubber plugs that I will make available. This will eliminate the sand issues. The new spools will not have holes anymore"

Has any Z owners filled in the holes in the drag adjustment cap. I've heard of it being done but never seen it done. If anyone has done it do you have any pix you could post.

Some guys filled it with RTV black silicon automotive adhesive. I was considering doing it with mine but instead just rinse it after each use because you have to rinse it anyway. The reel is skirted but you have to rinse out any skirted reel.
Rob has made a gasket available.
