Not yet, but that might change. Only thing is, this Alphas CT/Steez CT spool is narrower than any other Daiwa spool. Might be problematic for the Chinese mfgr's to replicate, because all the other Daiwa spools all match and share a common width. It really depends on the CNC machine and it's individual limitations.abbor wrote:This must be an ideal candidate to tune for lures 1/16 and less.

Nothing at 30mm yet. There may be hope in the future, as there have been aftermarket spools introduced for 32mm spools (SS AIR, T3 AIR, SV Light)abbor wrote:This must be an ideal candidate to tune for lures 1/16 and less. Any Air style or even lower weight tuning spools available yet?
Nothing like some basement casting!Pastrmka wrote:Short review, I've received mine but didn't fish with it (its 20 degrees outside). Reel is very well made, with tight/solid retrieve, for comparison I have SV Light which is a bit looser feeling when cranking. I did some casting in basement with wacky rigged weightless 5.8 inch flick shake (around 5 grams) and you can really sling it, even more than with sv light. I'm able to hit opposite wall of basement, around 30 feet which is not bad considering basement ceiling is 6'10" tall so lure is flying in straight line. Anyway, can't wait to really test it once weather allows.
Not yet, I imagine they will be a Bassmaster Classic release. I hope Daiwa doesn't wait until ICAST.BRONZEBACK32 wrote:Are these available in the states yet?

I tell myself that every year but...I then list 2 Steez SV TW for sale to fund new toysDirtyD64 wrote:I bet money with the tech today, we will see spools for just about any reel that comes out (assuming there is the potential to make money). Thing is, these new higher end Daiwa spools will eventually reach a pinnacle, right??? I mean as it stands now, you really don't get much better than the ZPI M/PG or G1 1012 SV, for general purpose fishing that is. I figure BFS options will appear more as its popularity increases, but I have hesitated spending $100-140 on a spool because my current Steez A/Zillion SV TW spool gives me about all I would ever need. I really think I could have that reel/spool combo for every rod with just a few different ratios and never need improvement again (I know how that works though, already eyeing new stuff).

Daiwa tells us that we will have them for the Bassmaster Classic. The Tackle Trap will be there, set up at booth 518 in the main expo hall!Hobie-Wan Kenobi wrote:Not yet, I imagine they will be a Bassmaster Classic release.

I don't usually mind spending a few bucks on high end gear but some times I feel like these prices are a bit much...
