Just wondering if anybody here has used the Banax 1500 TM, if so likes and dislikes of said reel?

Not that model but I fished Banax reels for several years and don’t have the first complaint.

I have the 1000 for deep dropping. I know that one just came out this year. Anytime I I have had a question or needed help with something James has answered the phone. The best customer service I have dealt with. I am sure if you call and talk to him he can answer any questions you may have.

I see on the THT the one guy is selling them for 1395.00 and I have looked other places and found them fir 799.00 that's a big price difference.

I know if you buy from eBay or other places you don’t want to deal with any warranty issues. Also frigate sales on the hull truth knows the serial number of the ones he sells and he will not warranty ones he did not sell or fix those ones. I sent mine in and he turned it around in one day.

I have heard nothing but good things about Frigate Sales and the warranty he provides with the reel, but have you used the 1500 TM yet?

I saw a side by side comparison of the bantax and diawa and the bantax had much bigger bearings and drag system as well as gears. Looked stout.

I have not used the 1500. Are you targeting swords? If not the 1000 would suffice for any deep dropping minus the swords. That is the reel they came out with as a entry level swordfish reel. If you are just deep dropping the 1000 should suffice.
