I was looking at these yesterday. The USDM version and the JDM version. It looks to me like the USDM version is a better looking reel with a better looking drag star. If I had $300.00 to spend right now, I would be tempted to buy my first Daiwa.

I am only addicted to Conquest 50's. LOL

 

Trust me Hootie, I do not have the money! With Christmas next Thursday, I don't think my wife is going to front me any more money considering a NRX802C was delivered yesterday.

I hope they come out with an updated version using the TWS they are using in the Tatula, and now the Zillion.

They have a T3 Air, which is their top of the line bait finesse reel right now.

 

PX-R is getting discontinued so its going on clearance :). It's still an amazing reel on one of the most beloved platform of all time, so I think its worth getting.

That's great John. Hope you got a good deal on the NRX.

I agree with it being worth getting.  I bought one at the beginning of this year and never once regretted my decision.  While the T3 Air looks like a heckuva reel, there's still something special about the Pixy frame that makes me hope they'll try to introduce an updated version on that platform.

They are making Alphas SV soon, really excited to get my hands on those once they come out!

This reel should never have been $500 in the first place. The PX68 has been available for 350 and less from japan for years.

I saw that,  but I just don't see a need for the reel in my aresnal.  Maybe, I am wrong, but seems like a lot of money for a reel, that I could get spinning gear to do.  

 

I got married a couple of months ago and my groomsmen got me a $250 gift card to TW so, I am tempted, but just can't see it.  I'll probably just stock up on lures so I can be set for the rest of my life, hahah

Right BUT most people dont know crap about the JDM market...Hence all the crap they sell at Bass pro geared towards 95% of the fishermen..

I give anglers a little more credit I suppose. Anyone who is in the market for a reel costing $500 is probably going to be doing some research.

you would think, but people still buy overpriced stuff at BPS...

the upper end market is not as big as you think...

shoot BPS doesnt even carry the Pixy OR the Tatula Type R in the stores...

And since the release of the Pixy in 2002 I have not owned a spinning reel as these things can fling a small bait with the right rod no problem..

Great deal on a great reel, even better buy the gift card for 10% off and get the reel for $270  :eyebrows:

 

Had to stop myself from getting one, ive had 3 or four now. If i wasnt on such a tight budget i would of probally grabbed one.

So, what is the application for these reels, finesse, shakey head?

Micro jigs, neko rigs, really small hard baits... so yup anything small that you want to cast on the baitcaster.

I think the answer is that as a Pixy derivative, it can indeed handle lighter baits. BUT, as essentially a "from the factory" Pixzilla, with a multidisc drag stack good for about 9 pounds, it will handle much larger baits and fish. You're really only limited by the spool capacity for your chosen line...

 

I do use mine for lighter baits with 6lb test line but that's a chosen application - not a limitation of the reel.

Oh man, what a great opportunity. If it were other times probably I would have jumped on the deal in an eyeblink, nowdays no more.

 

A list of NIB reels I have.

 

1 Airy Red Pixy

1 Chronarch 50 Mg

1 Citica 200 D

1 Citica 200 E

1 Citica 200 G5

1 Alphas Type F

1 Daiwa SS SV

 

Yup, not to point out that I still have a few reels that have been used only once or twice.

 

So nope, no PX-R for me.
