FWIW, they gave the bushing different names on the TXZ.

If they used the original TX design and swapped the bushings it should be a more solid reel than the Z. Are they actually different frames or just hte same frame with different paint? Really don't know. I do know that the TX I own does feel slightly different than the Zs I own. Both are good reels but, IMO, the TXZ should still fall into a $250-$300 price point.

If I were you I would got to my local fishing shop and put hands on both of them. Anglers Anonymous in Katy has both of them in store right now.

Then either you didn't actually talk or ask the guys working there about those reels or you went to a big box store where they don't know jack about anything.

But from my conversation over a month ago with Steve at Anglers Anonymous, yes the internals in the TXZ are upgrades from the Z. The guys at AA can tell you exactly the differences and whatnot. I heard them all a month ago and don't remember exactly except that they are supposed to be better.

The part numbers on 13 website don't match up for further verification.

Spoke to my guy at 13Fishing. He said the TXZ uses CZB Comp bearings and not the CZB found in the Z reel. Larger handle, deep spool and a few more internals more designed for salt.
