Bearings is really small,only 0.5g...,so 4.9g and 5.1g (15 and 29)
KTF havier mostly on axis ,of course...but this new Avail gets less inertia ,so-starting easily and need a less brakes to stop.Also it's more comfortable works with low weight.-1g lures and even less...

Dang. I can do some crazy casting with my KTF spool. Couldn't imagine an even more capable spool. Imagine porting that bad boy.

And plus...29 spool have a good space to put 8-10-12 lb fluoro, and work well with it! I was tested in pair with Z-Pride13, on 8lb and 10lb fluoro,and Ald BFS+29 cast small jerks (1/16 and 1/8)with both this line more comfortable and a couple yards further...(1/16 go to 20 yards -no issues)
Yea,Avail did nice job! Last time Iwas so exciting,when used 2518 honeycomb for Abu 2500...
I hope,very soon we'll see more nice spools with new light axis...bye-bye stainless steel :lol:

I just don't see why the axis weight matters so much. How is the 1615 spool compared to the KTF specifically?

Are there any restrictions with 29 spool when it comes to using braided lines, as far as I can see no restrictions on stock spool

I've used braid on a lot of BFS reels, with the Aldebaran BFS KTF spool being one of them. As long as you're not punching or using them outside of their intended use, you'll be good. I think the Avail site says something about braid so, you'll be good

No,I don't see any...If some may happen,they're say like this:

"We are developing target of regular size fish in trout fishing such as management fishing spot and mountain stream. It is not suitable for intense fishing requiring mainstream large trout or bus fishing equal to or greater than the equivalent.
If a lot of thin nylon lines are rolled up than the line with the notation on the line capacity, there is a risk of spool breakage due to swelling and contraction due to the water absorption characteristic of the nylon line. Please be careful."

That's about Microcast Spool AMB 2518 TR...and coz it's honey comb...a full body spools(no drilled or honey c) is match more strongest .

"The bearing mounted on the shaft part of 16 ALD 15R is 740 ZZ size .

Please note that the size is different from the bearing which is incorporated in the original spool.

Bearings on the side of the paring cup are not changed to genuine, 730 ZZ size (inside diameter 3 mm × outside diameter 7 mm × thickness 3 mm) will conform. ⇒ SHG-740ZZ"

I run 10lb power pro slick to a leader 4-8lb mono/ fluoro depending on presentation. Have not had your issue.
