Daiwa Alpha 150

So my son was looking at getting another Daiwa reel, his main two reels are the Tierras. He wanted to get an Alpha I assume a 103 or a 105, he got the numbers mixed up and bought a very nice 150. He got it yesterday and was a little disappointed, I think this is the JDM TIERRA. Other than the swept drag star and handle everything looks identical inside and out... is this an accurate assessment?

By identical I mean excluding the paint differences.

You are correct. It is basically the Advantage 153 HSTA, with the good smooth knobs.

I bought one of the Tierras from him, I already upgraded the drag, bearings and added a Zillion drag star and handle..so I guess it's mine again... the 150 is a good looking reel...
