Pixy vs. Sol vs????

Recommended Posts

Well, I need 2 baitcasters for 6-10lb line. Do I need the Pixy reels to throw 1/8-1/4 oz lures with 6-10 lb braid and 6 or 8lb mono??? I do have a Sol, but I'm really attracted to the Pixy, but then again, I can get Sol's for $160. I will consider other options, but, they MUST be small framed and MUST be under 8oz.

Nothing finer than a tuned Pixy, aka Pixzilla.

The Sol and Alphas are great reels, the Alphas Itö is even better, but compared to the Pixy for light line & small lures it 's like comparing your everyday drive to a F1 car. I wouldn 't recommend the Presso, it 's for even lighter line plus it only has a 70 mm handle. BTW, I wouldn 't recommend 6-10 lb test braided line either, it 's as thin as a hair and it will break easily if you rub it against a rock, you want 6-8 lb diameter then you 'll have to go higher, 20 lbs braid minumum.

Yeah, I just found that out about 6lb braid. It doesn't work on the Sol very well. I think I'm going to put it on the spare spool for my 8025 and use it to throw little cranks for Crappies and sunfish. I like 10lb braid on spinning reels, and I'm going to try it on the Sol. I want to know how it works, good or bad. I do have plenty of 6-20lb mono and 10-20 braid, so I can spool up what is needed.

Thanks for the input so far, my rebate check might have to go for 2 Pixy's.
