DAA Alpha X Holster, 3 x Alpha X Magazine Pouches, and Premium Belt Combo Kit by Double Alpha Academy
Double Alpha Academy - Alpha-X Holster
In recent years Double‑Alpha Academy's competition holsters have been setting the benchmark for advanced design and cutting-edge performance. The Race Master Holster has become the go-to competition holster worldwide for many top Champion shooters in our sport.
Double-Alpha is known for not standing still, and over time the Race Master Holster has been improved. Upgrades and refinements were made to its hanger system and more recently, to the patented insert block, making it magnetic and improving its performance further.
And now, over the past few months, DAA has been working on the next generation holster.
We are very proud to introduce the Alpha-X holster!
The ALPHA-X was born of years of experience and market feedback, looking to take the Race Master Holster even further, creating a new fresh, striking look and adding several meaningful performance upgrades.
New Ball Joint and Lock-Up Mechanism
The ball joint of the Alpha-X offers a wide range of motion, allowing you to position your holster at just the right angle. This holster uses a much larger ball joint and a pressure lug lock-up, which locks the ball firmly without marking or damaging it. With this system even the smallest adjustments are always possible.
The ball joint is now located higher up, closer to the center of the holster. This reduces the torque and forces applied, contributing to the solid rigid feel of the holster.
A large easy-to-reach one-screw locking system allows you to adjust the holster position even when wearing it.
Body Rail Height Adjustment
The Alpha-X achieves its height adjustment by means of a rail built directly into the side of the holster body itself. This offers an extended range of adjustment and again reduces torque and forces applied. Here too the lock up is achieved by an expanding dovetail mechanism that does not gouge or damage the rail.
Detachable Belt Hanger
The Alpha-X has a two-piece belt hanger which can be dismantled by opening a single screw, allowing all position settings to be maintained while removing the holster body from the belt for easier space-saving transport.
Interchangeable Color Logo Inserts
The Alpha-X is available in black anodize only, with an assortment of optional color inserts for the hanger and body logos. You can change these laser-cut plastic inserts whenever you choose.
The Same Race Master Insert Blocks!
The Alpha-X utilizes the same successful magnetic insert blocks used by the latest generation Race Master Holster. An Alpha-X Holster can be purchased with or without an insert block, making the upgrade easier and more affordable for shooters already using our Race Master Holsters.
Double Alpha Academy - Alpha-X Mag Pouches
The Alpha-X pouches are an evolution of our Race Master pouches, the Double-Alpha flagship mag pouch for years. The aluminum construction offers unparalleled durability and striking appearance, and that is maintained in the Alpha-X line.
However, since an aluminum pouch is sometimes not as smooth-drawing as a plastic pouch, and we want the best of both worlds, the Alpha-X utilizes a new innovative internal spacer system that totally envelopes the magazine when seated in the pouch. The magazine does not make any direct contact with the aluminum sides at all.
The new spacers also center the magazine in the middle of the pouch, no matter their size. And, for the first time ever, they offer a height-adjustable bridge support under the magazine, allowing you to determine how deeply your magazine seats into the pouch.
The innovation and improvement of the Alpha-X Mag Pouch do not stop with its new inserts and striking new look.
The mounting system is completely re-engineered. The new ball joint is held in the belt hanger using a pressure coupling rather than the grub screws used in the Race Master. This offers a totally secure lock up and the option to make minute adjustments to the pouch’s angle and tilt without creating any “memory dimples” in the ball joint. The ball joint can be attached to the pouch in several positions, allowing a full range of height adjustable for right-hand, left-hand or bullets-out users.
And finally, a dash of color and personalization can be added with the laser cut plastic inlays, available for user installation in several colors.
Double Alpha Academy Premium Belt
Introducing the DAA Premium belt. This belt offers the extreme rigidity of the Competition belt, in the higher quality finish and look of the PRO model.
In recent years we have offered two belts: The original DAA Competition belt, and more recently, the DAA PRO belt. The first’s best feature is its extreme rigidity, stemming from a slightly thicker and harder core. The latter – boasts improved looks and finish, and includes a handy name-card holder incorporated into the outer belt. Both belts have been received well, and each has their followers. Some choosing the Competition belt if they view rigidity as the most critical feature while others choose the improved appearance and quality feel of the PRO belt. We thought – why force our customers to compromise? Why can’t we offer the best of both belts – in one?
Sizes are available for 28”–50”.
How to select the correct belt size: (do not select based on your pant size!)
1. Measure you actual waist circumference at the height where you plan to wear your belt.
2. Convert your measurements into Inches (1inch = 2.54cm)
3. Order the belt size which matches your measurement. Round upwards: if you measured 39”, order a belt size 40”.
If you measure around your waist 86cm/33.85", you should choose a belt which is about 104-110cm/41"-43.3" Overall length, which would mean a DAA belt size 34". If you measure around your waist 98cm, you should choose a belt which is about 115-123cm/45.25"-48.5" Overall length, which would mean a DAA belt size 36 or 38" (38" would be the safer bet, a little long is always better than a little short).
