Re: $100.00 BFS Challenge

Lots and lots of stuff made and assembled in China. Even a good portion of the good stuff. Really nice write up. That's dedication for sure 8-)

Re: Pixy vs alphas bfs reel

Between the alpha air and ASC would you pick the ASC for the 6'4" UL if you were only going with one setup ? Yes, but I also wouldn't ever throw anything over 1/8oz with it. Also, I slowed my ASC down with 5.8 gears as I use that setup for spoons and hardbaits. If you stick with 5# or less fluoro o...

Re: Pixy vs alphas bfs reel

I'm sure you guys are tired of me by now but one last question. Kind of hard to answer unless you have tried them. I've been digging up as many old posts as I can on them. Kind of seems silly to spend the money when the ASC can be had for around $250 and the Alphas Air used for $200 or less. -How d...

Thanks, got the knobs and spool from you so and saw an old picture of your reel before hand lol. Just missing the red drag star.

Do you think red knobs would look better or stick with the white?
I like the white myself, especially with that stick.

Re: Isn't it crazy that some Daiwa platforms are almost 20y old and still in production?

I agree with Cal and Maverick. The Alphas is just a great platform that people really enjoy. No need to change the footprint, just keep dumping newer, better tech in it. I'd like to see a new frame as well, but I also feel the Steez SV TW was the money shot. With so many tuning options, we can all s...

Re: Pixy vs alphas bfs reel

Chris - I don't think you're going to see a whole lotta difference between the 70 and Air models. Maybe with a total weight of less than 1/8, the Air might get the nod. The SV Light Limited is right in that wheelhouse as well. They will all handle 1/8 plus small plastic on the right rod.

Re: Pixy vs alphas bfs reel

If you're keeping it around 3/16 oz and not much lower, I'd just stick with the Alphas SV you have. If your intent is to go lower, grab the Alphas Air. PX68 is a really nice reel, but spool tech is dated. SV is going to give you much greater control, and from my experience, the PX68 can get moderate...

Re: Sensitive Moving Bait Rods

That’s why I went custom I read reviews (opinions) and tried different brands but at the end of the day my jerkbait rod is an Otterrod custom spiral wrapped that is tried and true for me. Same here. I fish jerkbaits a lot and had Otterrods build me one a K2 blank spiral wrapped. It makes fishing a ...

Did they order it in for you? I'd like to hear more about it after you've fished it.

Re: Lets see all them Daiwa's

With all the many different rods on the markets these days, I stick to custom. Unless there is something I feel I can't live without. With the customs and matching reel, I can't really justify selling them to acquire something else. Plus I know what I'm getting, rather than running down the buy and...
