I had that GLX but the reel seat came loose. I'm sending it in the warranty replacement and I'll be getting an 852S in return. Same specs, just a few inches longer.

Re: Alphas CT 70 in stock at Digitaka!

i could be wrong but i think the new alphas is the same frame and size as the older generation alphas, but the spool is smaller? someone will have to correct me if wrong on this just what i have read about the reel. Correct, but the similarities stop there. With the smaller, narrower spool, a lot o...

Re: Drilling an Avail 16ALD15 Spool

There's a really old thread on here where the guy used a computer program to equally map out the more spacing and printed it out to use as a template for his drilling. I'll see if I can find it if I have some time to dig today. Minimal pressure, super sharp drill bits, and stepping up the hole size ...

No problem, its an inexpensive blank, but performs better than expected in all respects. I wish they hadn't changed the HM blanks. ](*,)

Mag-Light 2 piece blank...?

On the off chance I decide to have a custom rod meds for my Alphas CT SV, I'd like to use a 2piece blank, preferably something with a light tip to throw 1/8 oz total weight lures, but also able to throw 1/4 oz and fight 3-4 pound trout without feeling overloaded. Any suggestions? Rod length around 6...

Re: Replacing a reel seat

Functionally you can, but going from the butt end of the rod poses some challenges as I understand it. Your best bet is to post this in the custom rods section of the forum. One of the hurdles I can see is that you'll need to fit the seat over the butt which is larger than where the seat will end up...

Re: What’s your Finesse spinning rod?

I have a couple:

7'6" MLMXS Tatula paid with a '14 Daiwa Caldia 2506
G. Loomis GLX 852S paid with a' 12 Shimano Twin Power 2500S

These are both newly acquired over the winter so I can't tell you how either of them fish yet.

Re: Alphas CT 70 in stock at Digitaka!

Does someone mind explaining the spacers to me? Are the orange spacers attached solidly to the frame or they are sorta loose? And when you remove the new alpha spool, do the orange spacers fall out too? I want 1 too but.... Thx in advance. I got mine yesterday and took it apart. I didn't try to rem...
