I beg to differ. It goes best with a 2003 Pixzilla. :big grin:
They never made the orange in Lefty. :?
There is always this option.

Even if Daiwa never made a LH orange pixy, you can always use the side plates from a TD Sol and you make your own Orange amber Pixy in left hand retrieve

I love that rod =D>

You guys are killing me. My daughter thought it went best with the Sol... so maybe that will be my excuse. LOL! :big grin:

Looks pretty slick. What do you use your new rig for?

Thanks guys! I think I am going to make it my small Neko and wacky rig combo. Sometimes this summer I will try to drop shot with it.

Lovely looking combo. Always liked the offset reel seat with a round reel. If Daiwa could do a 50 size I would be all over it. Maybe try the new Millionaire CT SV. Shoild just about disappear in your hand but still offer a very firm hold.

Sweet looking rig for sure. If it were mine, I'd spool it up with some 6lb cxx and throw little crankbaits with it.

I've heard of the Pixy reels , but never the rods. Were they matched BFS systems?

Yes they are. Color matched too if you can get the rod and reel from the same year.

Your reels are beautiful. My almost orange pixy is an easier option. I have to give Radu Andrei credit, his reel gave me inspiration.

If you don't want to pay for a paint job for the sideplates of a pixy or rob the sidplates from a sol, there is always the spruced up sol option.
