Re: SV Light Limited

Bringing this topic back to life. I just picked a SV light LTD and would also like to know if there is a higher capacity spool available to use on this reel? Like Poisonokie already said this is a awesome reel but it’s a finesse reel for sure and it excels at being that, I have mine on a Phenix Fea...

Older Steez EX 100HS spool help ????

I just purchased used on eBay a Daiwa SS SV 103HL that came with a Steez EX 100 spool. I have 7.1 gears from a SS SV 103SHL that I'm going to install in it and plan to use this reel for topwater trebble baits like Wopper Ploppers, poppers and stick baits. What I would like to know is how does this s...

Re: Let's see that backlash!

This is a good reason to use braid. Never had a backlash that couldn’t be sorted out. Love some fluoro for certain things, but bushwhacking is not one of them. A buddy wrapped his PowerPole micro with braid on the backswing recently. By the time I made it over to him, he had already started cutting...

The Major Craft Benkei BF Rods have very good backbone but might be a little long for you.

Re: Fishing ole classics

Still fishing with non TWS Daiwas: Multiple Alpha's, Zillions, Steezs, and TDZ's variants. May buy an Steez TWS someday, but I will never buy a reel not made in Japan. I feel the same way, I feel Daiwa and Shimano takes great pride in the Japanese built reels. How great is the the Alphas platform s...

BFS fluoro pros: no need of fluorocarbon leader.
BFS fluoro cons: everything else.

BFS braid cons: need of fluorocarbon leader.
BFS braid pros: everything else.

:D

If braid would be no-no, I would use nylon in BFS.
I agree 100% and why I have Braid on 6 out of my 7 BFS reels.

Re: BFS Fluoro vs Braid Pros and Cons

Old post I know, but I ended up trying 5lb SunLine Sniper on my Shimano Conquest BFS and its very nice. I spooled up only 40 yards to keep the weight down and mostly use the reel for 1/8oz little cranks and BitsyBug Jigs. I tried lighter stuff under 3g and it cast ok but always wanted to pull left o...
