Default Difference between TIagra 80W and 80WA

Can anyone answer this one? Is the only difference the two the handle. On is ergonomic while the 80W is just a normal handle? What else?

The A series has improved bearings. A is for anti-rust from what I've been told. Also, the handles are greatly improved and it appears that the anodizing is thicker or better. That is why I'll take Shimano over Penn ANYTIME!!!!!!!

I do own the Penn V series, but I like the Shimanos fine except for the stupid hydrothermal drag adjusting piece of shit.

The post you read above must have been edited by our new moderator who will, this weekend, be subject to severe abuse.

You got that Fester?
