"Better" in which aspect ?

Sol vs Alphas .... which Alphas model ?

Lets 's point some characteristics of the Alphas model by model so you get a better idea:

Alphas Type F

Weight 6.2 Oz

Cold Forged Handle

8 bearings ( 6 in the reel, 2 in the knobs )

Mag V

Painted finish

Alphas

Weight 6.4 oz

Cold forged handle

6 bearings ( same as the Sol, but these version has CRBBs )

Mag V

Painted finish

Alphas Itö

Weight 6 oz

Cold forged handle

6 bearings

Mag V with Type R+ inductor

Polished aluminum finish

Alphas R edition

Weight 6 oz

Carbon fiber handle

8 bearings ( 6 in the reel, 2 in the knobs )

Mag V

Painted finish

The Sol is not better than any Alphas, the Sol is up par with the Alphas.

thanks. i could see the bearing were an upgrade over the sol and a small weight difference but not knowing a thing about the alphas i had no idea where the butter met the bread.
