I've found all three in the 2-350 range on ebay (new/used).  I need a nudge to pull the trigger on the Revo LTZ racing, Alphas SV, or 16' Aldebaran BFS.  Please give me some first hand feedback on these reels.  Thanks.

The alphas sv is fantastic and great for medium to bps fishing.  They have a lot of mods available along with a 3 or more gearsets.  They palm the best imo and should be new right around 220 shipped.  I got the 7.2 but the ipt is not fast.  I love it for Sammys and jerkbaits on an avid 66mf

Sweet.  That's one for the Alphas.  Btw, how long have you had it and how's the thumb clutch treating you nowadays.  I know with my Revo 3's (cranker and jerkbait setups) the thumb clutch gives in sometimes which requires a harder press.  But that's just around the end of the season.  I usually replace all three springs (slide cam and bunny ear springs) in the winter.

My sol is 6 years in my possession regular cleaning no issues 3 additional alphas ITo,s 4.5 years no issues and a sv 1 year no issues.  The only issues I have had are the clear side plates on the ITO's a known weak point and the spring going back in on the sol but I don't recall the name.  There are several artices on this as well.  Overall supper happy with them.  If I could ask for one thing it would be more drag.
