I got the SS SV105 in today. Its flawless. There is not a mark on it. I don't know why it was listed as "B" condition. The reel is perfect. The box has some subtle rash but that is it. Not bad for $146 to my door.

That's funny. I spent more than that just to trick out that Zillion, which was almost as much as i spent on my SS SV 103HL a few years ago. Well done, sir. I'm a bit jealous. I could really use that reel. Except for the fact that it's wrong handed, that is. :lol:

Wow, that looks really nice with the purple on it. Did it come like that for $146 or did you dress it up? I just picked one up in like new condition a couple weeks for $175 to my door, haven't used it yet but will tomorrow.

Bass.co.jp. They have a pretty good used rod and reel section.

The SS SV105 reels come with a 105 spool and purple parts. I think the SS SV105s only came in 8:1 purple.

Here are better pics. Postimage turns pics into potato quality. The reel is flawless in like new condition. I was worried by the poor pics on bass.co.jp. I can't believe they consider this a B condition "some scratches". It looks brand new. I'm lucky the Japanese and US tackle enthusiasts use lefty reels. I can't wipe my rear end left handed.

I like it. I didn't see where you were going with the build until I saw the knobs glow then I got it. Nice mix of otherwise funky Daiwa colors.

Thanks! Yeah, with a little sunlight those knobs glow like crazy as soon as you get into some shade. I think the mag dial screw might be royal purple instead of the deep purple one I ordered, so I got one more to give it another shot. It clashes with drag star and levelwind shaft just enough to bug me.

It's the handle from a Daiwa Ardito reel (a tatula CT). I placed an order from EASTACKLE and saw the reel discounted and had to have that handle. :lol:

Oh yeah, I remember someone posting about those. It's funny because all the aluminum parts on the Ardito rods are red. They look good with a tatula type r.
