of course I am open to other recommendations.



SV103 as in the xs model? Or do you mean 105



I have the SV103 with 6.3:1 and 7.9:1 gear ratio

I like the DIY spools in my T3 SV and T3 1016.
As mentioned previously, I have not enjoyed using the DIY spools in the SV103. Have any of you guys used the combo?
Yesterday, I fished for several hours with the SV103 and RCS 1016 SV G1 and it was fantastic. I mainly used 1/4 oz spinners but also some 1/8 oz. I my hands the SV103 with standard spool does not cast very far (compared to my other reels) but that changes with the RCS G1 spool.
I do not know if the 1012 version performs as well, but I guess it does.
Thus, IMO you will like a RCS spool even if you do not fish with ultra light lures.
If you happen to dislike the spool then I think you will find many potential buyers (myself included).
If you go below 1/8 oz then get a BFS reel.
Yes, the Conquest BFS is expensive, but you will love it :-)

The standard SLP 1012 and G1 1012 spools simply can't be beat in many, many platforms. The do anything spool! Haven't tried it an SV103, but in a Steez SV TW it's magic. Little fast and wild in my Steez SV103
