Crankbait reel

Reels are the hottest topic for TackleTour. Everyone wants to know what the latest and greatest is and how they compare to the old guard. What's the best for light stuff, or what's your suggestion for heavy cover. Do we really need different retrieve ratios? It's all in here.

I'm very partial to my 105, so yes, I would personally prefer an SV105 for your intended purpose. And I have 2 Zillion SV TW reels myself.
Try not to let your mind wander. It is much too small to be outside unsupervised.

I also have 2 Zillion SV TW reels that I love and suggest to everyone. I also have an SS/SV for a 7' Medium cranking rod and kick myself to this day for not buying a second SV105. I plan on buying another SV105 coming up for a small topwater setup. I would love it if my SS/SV was an Alphas 105, with a 100mm handle it would be perfect for all I do on that 7' Medium, moderate rod...
