Alphas sv or Alphas air

Reels are the hottest topic for TackleTour. Everyone wants to know what the latest and greatest is and how they compare to the old guard. What's the best for light stuff, or what's your suggestion for heavy cover. Do we really need different retrieve ratios? It's all in here.

Alphas sv or Alphas air

Postby faheem96 » Tue Apr 10, 2018 11:15 pm

Should i get an alphas sv or air? If i get an alphas sv, its cheaper and i can get an aftermarket bfs spool while the alphas air is a bitit more expensive. I can get two spool for alphas sv while alphas air only has one for roughly the same price. Im into bfs fishing.

Alphas SV. You'd be shocked what the stock spool can do with better spool bearings.

I d say the Sv. I use mine for tossing metal knife jigs 10 to 14g and the distance is ridiculous.
Just swap the brake ramp to the white one, the stock one is black. Also add a stiffer spring.

If u get the air ur stuck to the air spool only.
If u get the sv u can get the rays diy spool for bfs. Allowing u to dual purpose the reel.

Another vote for alphas SV. More versatile, spool options, etc.
(That new alphas air stream is pretty sexy though, if you can find one =P~ )
