2016 Loomis GLX 894c Balance.

Have any of you guys tried or compared the newer GLX 894c rod vs. the NRX 894c for balance. Just curious about how much better it might balance after the 2016 re-do. Not that the NRX 894c is that off on balance. Thanks guys

Daiwa alphas sv level wind bearing spacer?

To the guys that have done the level wind bearing upgrade from the bushing on the alphas sv, does it take a spacer with the bearing like the px type-r or other pixy's? Or just needs the bearing?

Steez SLP Works 105 SV Spool 10 grams?

Hey guys, can anyone confirm the weight of the SLP Works 105 SV spool? Websites are saying it weighs 10 grams, I'm curious, because, I know my alphas 105 SV Spool weighed 13.5 grams. I'm thinking if the steez 105 sv spool weighs 10 grams it ought to cast and pitch awesome.

Re: NRX 894c

Also, how's the balance compared to the 873ccr? I will be using a Steez reel, not that I am real sensitive to tip heavy-ness, just curious. I find most of the NRX rods to be so light it doesn't matter.
