Couldn't resist, loving the aesthetics!
I was surprised at how better it looks in hand, than any pics I've seen.

The Steez SVs are great reels! I had one for a bit and I was very impressed with it. I just happened to find a reel that I wanted more, so I ended up selling the SV. :lol:

I see you swapped out the knobs.

Swapping the knobs was on my agenda. The originals weren't bad once you got used to them though. I definitely like the looks of the corks better, however. Now you need to put some purple caps on them and "bling" it out like your orange and black Steez. :mrgreen:

I always try to pay it forward when I sell my gear. :)

How does it feel compared to the SS SV? Initial impressions? Assuming you haven't had it on the water yet.

Also curious, does the frame/body feel closer to the older steez or ss SV ?

Feels way more connected as a whole, if that makes any sense.
Love my SS SV's, but they never did translate as good as the Steez.
I was afraid of losing that crisp feeling due to the Zaion, but it really doesn't feel sluggish at all.

Unfortunately in Canada, ice is settling in, won't be a while till I get her out on the water.

Damn, why couldn't Daiwa leave these purple parts for those Megabass Reels :? Some blue would have been nice :(
Thanks for the welcome! ;)

I was like you, I was very suprised when I held it in my hands. I absolutely hate the original knobs though! Thanks to Ham Solo for the great deal on mine! :D

I have a couple of them and looking at getting another but thought I would give the EX a try first. Can anyone compare the SV with the EX ?

Does the EX come in a faster gear ration than 6:3:1 for lefties ? Answer is, YES - Thanks Ian

Also, what are the suggested knobs to get ?

The stock knobs, similar or identical to the ones on the Tatula.
