  2. Hello Fellow raiders, I have a choice of Either a Alvey 500BC or an Alvey 475A reel to use on my 12ft Diawa Thunder Stick Blackfish rod. About 15 yrs old still like new So I am soliciting a general Consensus on which would be the better choice. I have fished for Luderick for about 43 yrs. Mostly from rocks sea walls and sometime from a boat. But in this instances I will be targeting the rocks. So in advance thank you for your time and wisdom. Cheers
