Are these reels identical other than lugs, handle and drag?

I've emailed them and waiting for response. If you guys know please chime in.

Alutecnos 12, 40lb of drag, 27.5 oz.
Alutecnos 20, 45lb of drag, 35oz, more comfortable handle.

Both reels are build like a tank.

Are they same size reel and frame TJ? What about line capactity?

They look the same other than minor cosmetic difference and drag. I cannot find good references for the line.

I wonder if they have option to get lugs on the 12 or will I have to buy a bracket.

I do not see an option for lugs add-on on Gorilla 12, you'll need bracket

I have 2 of these and they have the smoothest drag , fine CNC details as
well

I have the 12 and it's a great reel. There is no option for lugs, but you can put the large comfortable 20 style handle on it.

For jigging I recommend 12 as 20 is too heavy and 12 has enough drag and line capacity for any tuna under 200 lbs.
