Keep what you got! I don't disagree that the TLD's are sweet for the $$.. BUT, the aluminum framed internationals are more rigid, and durable.. yes, they are a little heavier, but unless you are holding the outfits in your hands all day while fishing, who cares? the rod holder won't complain, and when you pick it up with a fish on the end, the few ounces of extra weight will make zero difference.. trading down to save a few ounces on this type of reel makes no sense at all to me..
