My first 2 JDM reels have arrived

Recommended Posts

Well its been a long time coming. I have always wanted to give the JDM reels a go and just see what there all about. So last weekend I set out searching on this site and asked a few members some questions behind the lines and decided to go with a Daiwa Airy Red Pixy and a Daiwa Alpha (purple) as my first 2 JDM reels.

Excellent choices!!  You're gonna be suprised how far they cast.  I can almost empty the spool on my Alphas with a 1/2 oz. trap. :o

The purple alphas (besides being a great reel), has absolutely the best paint job I've ever seen on a reel.  It's not only the most durable paint job, but the pearl coat is just unreal...it has a super-fine bronze/gold fleck in the pearl coat..  It is extremely durable, too.  The Pixy will impress you the most though upon initial use.  Nice reels...

Congrats on those beautiful reels! 8-) You do what I do with the line except I loop it onto the reel foot.

What rods did you have in mind for them?

I'm not a big JDM fan but those are some nice looking reels.

Good catch.

One word of advice, if you want those reels to cast like a dream you need to oil the spool supporting bearings every trip or two, a drop of oil and they are ready to go.

I 've had the Alphas Itö since mid 2005, the Type F since mid 2006, first Pixy since mid 2005, second Pixy since late 2006, about 2 months ago I got my 3rd Pixy.

If didn 't think so highly about them I would not have purcahsed so many.

This has to be the same stuff they used on the Daiwa Tierra spinning, you described it to a "T"

Good luck with those!!  My boat is red and my custom rod(s) color scheme is purp/blue on black blanks,.....I want them both also!! lol
