Ss sv spool options

Post by chrisg_sdcf » Mon Jan 27, 2020 4:23 am

I was just curious if anyone has tried a SS SV with a Zpi nrc001m spool, steez 103 r+, or steel limited 105sv spool? I keep reading about the SS sv being over braked but not sure if it's the spool, magnets, or both.

In my experience it is the spool that is over braked. I swapped mine out for a Steez 103 spool and noticed a substantial increase in casting performance. Mostly regarding pure distance.

Thanks.

Was that the steez 103 spool r+ spool? If so, was it wild or did it still have good control while increasing casting distance?

I have found the Steez 103 spool to be wild in the SS SV. Very un-Daiwa like, in that it was always right on the edge of blowing up. By the time I got the magnets and cc cap dialed in to good control, the reel was getting very poor distance. Heck, the Standard TDZ spool was a little wild in the SS SV. I just don't like a reel I have to babysit on every single cast. On the other hand, I have found the Steez 100 spool to be pure joy in the SS SV, with loads of distance and still good control.
Try not to let your mind wander. It is much too small to be outside unsupervised.

Honestly not even sure it was the stock spool from the original 6.3 Steez. Could even be the 100 will have to check when I get home.

Easiest way to tell on the stock Steez spool is that the rotor is red on the 103 spool and purple on the 100 spool.

It's the spool Chris. The inductor is quite large, similar to the SV103. I'm not sure about the M, it could be alright, but I imagine still fast. I would imagine that the SLP Steez SV105 spool would be a good option, as would the SLP /Megabass 1010.

Just checked my reel. It is in fact the 103 spool with the red inductor. I don’t find it too out of control but I do use it mostly for Pop-Max’s which I would consider a very castable bait.

I’ve run the zpi M spool in the ss Sv. Right on the ragged edge of blowing up on every full cast with the brakes on max. If I had the wind to my back is was great but a slight shift and I was picking a bird’s nest.

I have the same spool so I'll give that one a try then. Thanks

Thanks for the info. Don't think I'll be putting the m in the SS sv lol

I put an r+ spring in my SS SV spool and it woke it up a little.

I've used the Steez LTD 105 in my SS SV. It was about the same as it was in the Steez LTD. I ended up using mine for finesse and have a Ray's DIY in it with stronger magnets from an IS73. The SS SV spool and magnets live in the IS73 urban camo for a future build.

I might have to try this. I have an extra Steez limited 105 spool just sitting around. Thanks for the info

I've never used the steez limited reel just the limited 105 spool in a TD Ito and it was really nice. How is the spool in the steez limited?
