I ended up selling my centrifugal brake Lew's - easy to sell for almost what I paid in the current market.
Still like my mag-brake Super Duty, and added a second.
I've switched over to Daiwa SV reels with aftermarket shallow braid spools for casting light lures beyond 100' with Zero backlash.
You can buy small-spool-diameter Alphas Air ready to go, but the larger diameter 1000 size reels are best for distance.
Tatula, Zillion, Steez (if you want the top).
If you go the aftermarket braid spool route, Ray's Studio makes the shallow SV spoo
l that covers wide lure weight range
(unfortunately, looks like no one in the world has stock of aftermarket SV spool for Tatula)
If you want to throw down to 1/16 oz on a baitcaster, Roro-X
is the spool.
This Daiwa Zillion with Ray's SV BFS spool is loaded with 120 yds 27-lb X-braid (PE#1.2)
shopping Japan, you can get a Zillion SV-TW delivered in a few days for $300 - the stock spool is really good for 12-lb fluorocarbon.
But the lightweight braid spool takes it to the next level.
you set the mag adjustment for wind backlash and the lightest thing you're going to throw, and the moving SV brake rotor takes care of start-up centrifugal forces on all the heavy stuff.
I've fished this 3 trips with never a backlash, and last trip, was casting 1/8 oz across the width of Little Cut (had to be careful to keep my cast out of my friends)
