Daiwa T3 1016 Reels today...

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.

Ordered a 8.1 Lefty T3 SV off ebay from Japan, hope the reel comes looking like it does in the pictures.
If the spools performance doesn't quite light your fire, look to the G1 1012SV....OR, the Zpi nrc001M
I will check it out, does anyone know if arigato-japan-fishing is legit?
That spool is awesome in T3's. It's also the best I've tried in the SS SV. The inductor is pretty short, so it gets wild in most Mag Z reels, but it's perfect for the SS's strong braking profile and the T3's Magforce 3D.

I run 20 lb Berkley Black Velvet braid on my T3 SV and mono on my T3 1016.
I have to say that I am no huge fan of the T3 series (haven’t tried the MX or Ballistic). Plastic feel and early signs of grooving are downers for me. Still, for some applications my stock reels perform great and with aftermarket spools I have uncovered a wealth of possibilities. At present, I keep my T3s in the back of my car along with various spools and tackle for many fishing situations.
I would, however, consider other more recent 34mm spool reels before the T3s if I was looking for a new reel today.

I've always used 20# braid on mine.

I have extra spool options I have for my Steez A that I can use in my T3, the only reason this reel sparked interest in me is because of the composite frame and brass gears. I fish alot of saltwater so I can give my Steez A a break from the salt. I also like the design and look of the reel a lot compared to some of the newer reels today.
