I finally found a reel to put on the Daiwa AGS MMH.

A match made in heaven. I was getting really good distance with 1/4 oz speed trap cranks, and burning them back was effortless.
The combo looks awesome =D>

Trying to capture the burgundy in the rod and reel. The two are nice together. Scorpion 1000XT with Yumeya spool and Kuying Teton 662L. These rods used to be $50. Now they are like $70+.
Perfect color matching =D>

Is that a Major Craft Finetail ?

Re: Speaking of Pixies

Unfortunately I could not immediately weigh the 2 spools without bearings because I no longer have a Red Pixy. Finally I found this reel at a friend and asked him to take the bearing off the spool and weigh it: https://i.imgur.com/O6GnV2n.jpg https://i.imgur.com/f1BmAu0.jpg I also removed the beari...

Re: Speaking of Pixies

KTF did not modify the spool in any way. The standard (silver) spool that comes with the Airy Red has an R+ tuned inductor, which weights 14g. The older GIGAS made black spool that came in the silver/orange/yellow pixy is 15g and does not have an R+ inductor. The only thing KTF did to those limited...

Re: Speaking of Pixies

I'd love to see the difference between the stock Airy spool and the KTF. Would either of you be willing to snap a few shots for me? Thanks in advance! :big grin: From outside both spools look the same. The difference is in weight and the IXA ceramic bearings on the KTF spool Oh, I see. I always tho...
