Re: Light braid

Smackdown is pretty good. Too bad it has a tendency to easily break with lower lb tests.

Re: Foregrip or no foregrip?

Trim them reel seat threads and no foregrip. Some really nice foregrips and lock down hoods sure look pretty, but I generally only use them on moving bait sticks. I fish with just my pinky behind the trigger, and my pointer finger on the blank - weightless plastics, bottom contact, etc.

That feeling you get when you pick up a custom painted, well tuned Alphas (for a great price), then find another Alphas with a Megabass Zonda BFS spool for $140... \:D/ :big grin: :mrgreen: :shock:

In how many pieces Adrena's come? 2 or 1?
Japanese website states every model from 1611M+ and longer comes in 2 pieces.
Does the handle can get separated from the blank?
Both options are available

Re: Handle knob problems

Are you sure there aren't any thin shims on the knobs, handle posts or bearings? They can be hard to see sometimes.

Re: Millionaire CT SV reel

I still think that is such a shame because my Luna 103 + SLP Steez 105 spool is killerrrrr for crankbaits and the like. It took some upgrades besides the spool to get it there and I was hoping the CT would represent something similar out if the box. Of course, I wouldn't want to go below 1/4oz with...

Lots and lots of stuff made and assembled in China. Even a good portion of the good stuff. Really nice write up. That's dedication for sure 8-)

Re: Pixy vs alphas bfs reel

Between the alpha air and ASC would you pick the ASC for the 6'4" UL if you were only going with one setup ? Yes, but I also wouldn't ever throw anything over 1/8oz with it. Also, I slowed my ASC down with 5.8 gears as I use that setup for spoons and hardbaits. If you stick with 5# or less fluoro o...

Re: Pixy vs alphas bfs reel

I'm sure you guys are tired of me by now but one last question. Kind of hard to answer unless you have tried them. I've been digging up as many old posts as I can on them. Kind of seems silly to spend the money when the ASC can be had for around $250 and the Alphas Air used for $200 or less. -How d...

Thanks, got the knobs and spool from you so and saw an old picture of your reel before hand lol. Just missing the red drag star.

Do you think red knobs would look better or stick with the white?
I like the white myself, especially with that stick.

Re: Isn't it crazy that some Daiwa platforms are almost 20y old and still in production?

I agree with Cal and Maverick. The Alphas is just a great platform that people really enjoy. No need to change the footprint, just keep dumping newer, better tech in it. I'd like to see a new frame as well, but I also feel the Steez SV TW was the money shot. With so many tuning options, we can all s...

Re: Pixy vs alphas bfs reel

Chris - I don't think you're going to see a whole lotta difference between the 70 and Air models. Maybe with a total weight of less than 1/8, the Air might get the nod. The SV Light Limited is right in that wheelhouse as well. They will all handle 1/8 plus small plastic on the right rod.
