Re: Alphas spool options

I like the Zonda spool for heavier weights also, though it casts well even with lighter stuff (with 15# braid). The SV spool does handle lighter baits better, with virtually no backlash.

Re: Kastking reels

Bass Resource and Glenn, what a joke! He suspended me about 2 yrs ago, said I sold too much stuff there. Funny thing is, I never sold a single item as a result of that forum. 3 of his own moderators went to bat for me and he lifted the suspension right away lol! I have bought things there, though. A...

Re: Crankbait reel

I have 2 SV105SH's in my line up that I use for jerkabits and weightless senkos. Would you guys pick the Alphas SV105 over the Zillion SV TW for the task at hand? I'm very partial to my 105, so yes, I would personally prefer an SV105 for your intended purpose. And I have 2 Zillion SV TW reels myself.

Re: Crankbait reel

Not to mention, the Alphas platform fits in my palm so well. It just seems to disappear in my hand. 8-)

Re: Crankbait reel

I will cast a dissenting vote here...the Alphas Variants are hard to beat down to 1/8 oz. and they are forgiving even in the wind (not to mention, they are nearly indestructible). The 5.8 gear ratio of the Type F and OG purple people-eater is just right for cranks, too, IMHO. And they can be had in...

I have a couple of customs built on them. I like them very much. As light as anything I've used and very sensitive, to boot.

In the corner of each post, there is a triangle with an exclamation point. That is a "report post" icon. Click there and you can let us know that way.

Re: Anyone tried DIY spools? $29-$40 BFS spools!

Is the MX really that much nicer than the Ballistic? The T3B is a nasty reel. I like the flip up hood, spool compatibility and Magforce 3D of the platform. $129 brand new for a T3 MX is tempting if it's not horrid like the T3B. I had both. Yes, the MX is an entirely different animal. I burned rat-l...

I bought a reel from Kevin. It was as-described and was shipped fast. Great communicator, too.

Ditto, and the Legalis is the only reel listed with an aluminum frame. I have the 2500 and I think its a very good reel, especially for the $45-$55 price tag on many of the budget/auction sites.

According to a friend, it will throw down to 4 grams easily. He hasn't tried lower due to the rod it is on.

Re: Changing a 1 piece rod casting rod into a 2 pc.

Mattman made a NRX SY822 into a 2 piece rod a few years back. Might be wrong on the model number, but it was definitely a NRX.

Re: Anyone tried DIY spools? $29-$40 BFS spools!

I think you mean the outer race Tim. The inner race, balls and cage all spin on cast and retrieve. Either way though, that's still a pretty light spool for $50 and not being made of magnesium and not having an aluminum spool shaft. Yep, I must've just mis-typed. :oops: And yes, that's still plenty ...
