IXA and ZPI parts, do the colors match?

Anyone know how close of a match IXA's "light blue" and ZPI's "blue"? They look like a near match in pictures.

In my personal opinion no. ZPI is a darker blue. Here’s a pic of 2 side by side. The further away from the pictures the easier it is to notice.

Definitely not. Usually have to stick with one manufacturer. Sweet Limited by the way!

No worries. There needs to be more pics on this site, and it's much easier to see when the reel parts are side by side. 8-)
