Re: Need opinions upgrade daiwa alphas air bearing.

Pretty sure alphas air comes with quality stock bearings, but i've never seen em so i dunno. If its just stock bearings you'd get inside a pixy, etc, then yes, Air BFS are great, especially for the ultra light stuff. Air BFS are metal so they're nowhere near as noisy as the ray studio ones.

Re: Good jerkbait that’s better than a 110 or pointer?

For the last few years, every time i don't use a vision 110, i ask myself why am i wasting time. All the squadminows, reranges, shadow rap shads, etc are a no match for the vision 110's.

Re: Is the Steez SV TW currently the best low profile bass reel on the market?

Daiwa fans don't hold to their older daiwas as much as shimano fans? WH :laugh1: T? the pixy and the tdz platform is significantly more popular (on this forum that is) than any older shimano reels, even their masterpieces such as the conquest 50 and the conquest dc's.

Re: Scorpion 1000XT vs Alphas SV 105

50E platform is more comfy to palm than the pixy/alphas platform. But the casting distance is much better on the alphas.

Re: Used SS SV or Tatula SV TW

I would go with the SS SV any day. Palms better and is just a downgraded steez which is much better than any kind of Thailand made tatulas. Plus the overbraking on the SV spool of the SS SV isn't a bad thing for someone learning baitcasters.
