Is it true that Slice and Dice > Blitz Ace?

I thought I heard that Slice and Dice is Tidus's best overdrive, but thinking about it, doesn't Blitz Ace attack 8 or so times, and then attacks with the Jecht Shot? I dunno maybe I just heard it's the best UNTIL Blitz Ace. (Better then Energy Rain)

Against low Defense enemies: Blitz Ace
Against high Defense enemies: Slice & Dice

The first eight hits of Blitz Ace are just too weak for the really strong enemies.

Slice and Dice has a much faster recovery time, and can sometimes do more damage.

Blitz Ace makes you so delayed! The boss can get 3 turns if Tidus is alone. Slice & Dice is faster. My Slice & Dice does a good 600 damage each hit.

Yeah, like BBK said, the first 8 hits of Blitz Ace are just pathetically weak against enemies like Nemesis. I don't recall immediately and I don't have my PS2 and FFX here, but IIRC if you use Blitz Ace against Nemesis each of the first 8 hits will do like 30,000 or something like that? 8 x 30,000 + 100000 (round up 99999) gets you 340,000, as opposed to 6 hits of slice and dice which will get you slightly under 600,000?

I don't remember how weak the first hits of Blitz Ace are though, but there's also the added delay of Blitz Ace which makes Slice and Dice the better overdrive against certain enemies.

The eight hits of Blitz Ace have a damage constant of 4, as compared to a regular attack's DC of 16.

Just a little nitpick: In this case the hits from S&D would do something close to 60,000 (they have a DC of 6 and you get a bonus for doing the OD fast), which will leave you with a little more than 360,000 damage. The point still stands, though the difference isn't as huge as with the first values.

Why does it matter so much though? Wakka's Attack Reels is his best overdrive and it's not the last one to unlock.

What has attack reels got to do with anything? Tidus can't do attack reels.
