    I have a 2021 Luvias Airity FC LT2000S-P that I got in February when they were first released. Although not an exact equivalent, I also have a 2019 Ballistic FW LT2000SS-XH that I picked up last September. I swap them out frequently on my Lunakia 610 and my Tenryu Rayz Spectra 61LL. I'm a weekend warrior, not an everyday fisherman, so my experience is still relatively slim with these rods and reels.

    I bought the Luvias Airity in part because I wanted to experience a more high-end Made in Japan Daiwa reel. I love my Ballistic FWs. I have them in the 1000 and 2000 size. Although Made in China, the Daiwa quality control is there, and I could not be more pleased with the Ballistic FW. And so far, I can not tell that the Luvias Airity is really $250 better than the Ballistic FW. The Airity is a wonderful reel, and I do love it, but I don't know that I will spend that much again.

    I am looking at larger size reels to go after bigger trout and smallmouth, and I think I might get the 2020 Luvias (not the Airity) if I don't get another Ballistic FW.

    This new aftermarket handle from SLP works should look great in combination with their EX LT spools and Zain knobs:

    SLP-WORKS : SLPW 40mmカーボンライトハンドル ゴールド - Web site

    And with that gold accent on the main gear cover in Luvias Airity... Might just have to take a punt at it.

    According to digitaka, the Abu Garcia Zenon is made in China.

    Abu Garcia Japan does not have any gear that is made in Japan. All their manufacturing is in China.

    Thanks for the info. JDM Reel Thread #2 I wasn’t quite sure and gave up after watching a few YouTube videos.
