I think the bodies are pretty much the same but the spool sizes are very different. The xsbs come with 6000 and 10000. They go to 14's on the black mags i think

I've decided to take my mates XSB's as a swap for my 12000 XTA's. Beautiful looking reels but staggered at how small the mags are.

Gutted really but they are as new, nowhere near the build quality though. Are all the mags the same size as the XSB's?

XSC for me, nice and shiny to match me stainless look alps.... too blingy for most though, had them on my FMJs years ago.

Yes had line issues with the mags but that's normally me putting too much line on especially with the thick mono we use.

These high end shimis are a thing of beauty as far as im concerned, slow oscillation, mega cranking power and perfect line lay, well impressed

Thanks gents, seems both reels have a bit of a following still, here's a question, can you still get parts for the XSB's or are they discontinued now like the older techniums?

The older XSC is much more user friendly , Iíve had a set I sold to a mate as I just had collected too many reels , the older XSC is probably the best of the best in my opinion of all the Techniums
