    USA Alphas R-Edition F/S

    Got some stuff I want, so this one is reluctantly on the chopping block. The reel is 9.5/10 cosmetically, with one mark on top edge of the gear-side plate. It is flawless except for that. 9.5/10 mechanically, and only because it's used. It has carbontex drag, a black cc cap and a drag star from a Megabass Zonda 10R (black and gold). The box is included. REDUCED TO $210 tyd in the lower 48, payment via postal money order (or personal check, if I know you). Any price drops will also show up in the later replies I make, as a kind of price history as it has dropped.
    Thanks for looking,
    Tim

    I can send more pics, but the reel is perfect except for that one spot on the top edge of the gear-side plate.

    FWIW - I know the history on this reel very well. A local golfer went in the tackle shop and bought two of the “best” finesse reels the shop had - this and a ‘04 pearl yellow pixy back in the day. He thought he wanted to become a fisherman. The reels were both used once... and he decided golf was his thing still. I snagged both reels from him and held on to them for years in their boxes on the shelf. Tim and I discussed this reel on several occasions and I finally parted with it in a trade as I never used it in all the years I owned it. The small mark on the reel happened when the original owner was storing the reels after he decided fishing wasn’t his gig.

    In summary, to say this reel is “used” is quite a stretch, but a very fair evaluation from Tim. Buy with confidence as Tim is one of the best around and the reel is legitimately more “like new with a small blemish” rather than “used”.

    Thanks, David. To be transparent, I did use it once for about 45 minutes at a nearby pond.

    The exact model of this reel is the Daiwa Alphas R-Edition 103R and it has a 5.8:1 gear ratio. If you haven’t used an Alphas platform reel before this is an gorgeous example to start with. I’ve got three variants of the Alphas and they are one of the best all-around reels Daiwa ever made. With the Carbontex drag Tim installed in this reel it is about as good as it gets from Daiwa without spending twice the money.
