When your new rod inadvertently matches your new reel 😗👌
19 Daiwa Alphas CT SV x MajorCraft Benkei 672-L/BF. First time ordering JDM gear and I couldn’t be more pleased with the process. Reel from Amazon Japan and rod from Digitaka. Got a free lure with the rod purchase, too!
Is it possible to order JDM Tackle in the US from Amazon Japan?
Yes, for sure. I have a Daiwa Alphas CT SV coming for $161 from Japan Amazon right now that you can’t get in the US under $260. They also usually show up within a week unlike ordering from China.
I'll have to go with the Daiwa Alphas CT SV. It's small, light, has ample drag power, and is a super versatile piece of gear. Mine has had an array of fish at the end of the line; stream trout, big perch and bluegills, monster Lake St Clair smallies, Detroit River walleye, and a few decent pike in the mix.

Daiwa Millionaire CT SV vs Shimano Conquest BFS HG
I own a pair of the Alphas CTs and they're my favorite reels, but they do need a shallow spool to cast below 3g. In one of mine I have the SLP Works SV700S spool ($120) and the lowest I've tried casting was 1.6g which worked wonderfully from my Major Craft Finetail 5' L. For out of the box finesse, the Conquest will be much better than the Millionaire. The Millionaire will need a different spool to cast as light as the Conquest. If you were to pair the Millionaire with the SLP Works spool, you're looking over $500 in total, making the Conquest a better value in the long run.

Looking for advice on baitcasting setup for light lures
1/8 to 1/4 range I'd look at the Daiwa Alphas CT SV and pair it with a JDM Daiwa Bass X 64LB-Y. I have this exact combo and it works great for everything from crappie jigs and small Pop-Rs to smaller cranks and weightless trick worms. My favorite bait to use with it is a 1.5" paddle tail grub on a 1/16 ball head jig, total weight comes in about 2.8g.

Looking to buy a finesse/light gear bait caster...
4th to Daiwa Alphas CT SV...I got mine from eBay for $200 (free shipping from Tokio, JP). This reel weights only 170g, which is great if you want to build a really light setup.

First non-Daiwa baitcaster
You don’t have to put any power into the cast to cast a good distance with the Alphas CT SV. Personally I definately prefer the more free, light and effortless feeling over the more rigid and tight feeling Shimano offers.
