SHIMANO Metanium MGL

Thinking about purchasing a SHIMANO Metanium MGL.
Should I stay away from the Japan Model, and buy the US version.

Or are they the same reel, my main concern would be parts for the long term.

The price difference is 80 to 100 more for the US version.

Stick with U.S. version. You do not gain anything going JDM, but you will lose out on service and parts. Shimano does not support JDM reels sent to USA.

Actually it does have warranty in the US

The Metainium Is sold in the states. It has full warranty through Shimano USA. check Tackle Warehouse. If I can JDM cheaper i'd buy it in a heartbeat. JDM used to have a few upgrades the US version didn't have. I bought my Bantam MGL from Japan Tackle because it was $20 cheaper even with the $20 shipping cost. Just FYI.
