Daiwa Alphas Sv Gears Compatible W/ Older Alphas?

Recommended Posts

I just recently bought an alphas ito and was looking into replacing the stock 5:8:1 gears with pixy 6:8:1 gears. But now I am curious if the 7:2:1 gear set from an alphas sv would work. Does anyone happen to know if it will work?

Yeah, but you need the pinion yoke as well. I think that's it; you need something extra besides the gear set.

Good question. I don't know the answer but my gut tells me they would as most of the internals seem interchangeable. I have the 6.8:1 gears in mine and love them. Very smooth, strong, and well worth it over the stock gears.

I would email Japantackle and ask Jun if they fit before taking the plunge unless someone can 100% confirm propper fitment.

Awesome! I will email him tomorrow and post my findings here incase anyone else is wondering. I would also like to throw a set in my px68!

You can swap 6:8:1 px-r gears into the alphas. It only takes you from 24" ipt to 26" ipt though.

You need the following parts...

Px-r Main gear

Px-r Pinion gear

Daiwa #1 carbontex drag kit

Not really needed but you can also pick up the px-r 6:8:1 worm gear and the worm gear bearing upgrade. It's only money,right.

There are no gear swaps available for the px-r that I'm aware of. Which means there aren't any available for the alphas except px-r gears.

Here is the answer I recieved from Jun at japan tackle;

Hi Michael,

Thank you very much for email.

Unfortunately, Daiwa doesn't sell the gear of Alphas SV, and I may not offer you 7.2 kit. Sorry.

You will need to change drag washers. Yorks are the same.
