Does anyone make a blue colored finesse spool for the Alphas platform?

What blank is that you're talking about ? I'm asking because I am also looking for a blank for a BFS rod for chub and perch and any advice is welcome. The reel I already have is an Orange Amber Pixy.

I am not sure they still make them in blue, I have been checking ebay and aliexpress every month for like six months now and have not seen one in blue for the Alphas or Pixy.

It's a St Croix Legend Inshore UL/M casting rod I bought from the classifieds here. I got it in my quest for the "ultimate 1/8oz inline spinner" combo. The rod is perfect and my PX68 w/ Ray's spool works great, but I want a reel that looks better on it.

I just have to say again how beautiful all of these reels are congratulations to all who have been posting to this particular post as I said definitely makes me wish I didn't sell mine but then again I'm super stoked on my stable too so carry on carry on 8-)

Nice work, Forrest!
Try not to let your mind wander. It is much too small to be outside unsupervised.

Maybe.. I have a couple orange ccc kicking around somewhere.. I liked the simple look/mods on these reels for some reason.. TDZ handles, compressed cork knobs, 7.2 gears and the SV spool so far. I need to get the fast worm shaft yet..

Thanks for the compliments!
