Daiwa spool/reel number breakdown?

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.

Daiwa spool/reel number breakdown?

Post by eklikewhoa » Mon Oct 16, 2017 4:33 am

Tried reading and associating the differences but has me more lost than ever.

Trying to find a break down of the different numbers for the spools/reels.

ultimately, finding what spool/number does what and which will work in my Steez A TW.

Thank you!

Steez reels accept a 34mm spool. There are A LOT of options in this size. So deciding which spool for your Steez honestly comes down to its intended uses.

As for the numbering....

100 sized spools are a deep flat bottom spool
103 is a mid depth v bottom spool (non SV models)
105 is a shallow v bottom spool (non SV models)
1016 is a deep flat bottom
1012 is a mid depth flat bottom
1010 is a shallow flat bottom

SV spools use similar numbering...but they are all flat bottom spools

103 SV is a mid depth
105 SV is a shallow
1016 SV is a deep
1012 SV is a mid depth

The RCS1000 SV comes in both a deep and shallow

Thank you for the break down!

What you say flat /v bottom is that referring to the core of the spool where the line ties to?

Just to expand on this last question ---- is there any difference in how they perform (V vs Flat)?

That's correct.

The "V Bottom" spool is shaped like this \__/
The Flat Bottom is shaped like this I__I

Some people say Magforce Z (Flat bottom) spools are a little more tame. I believe has more to do with the inductor over the spool.
