Reel Recommendation for Steez XBD Frog Rod

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.

They are nice. Just gotta wait for one to pop up in the classifieds. Guess I should post a WTB and see what happens.
I might have a spare type R and SV103. Both RH and both 6.3:1, but I have new 7.3:1 gears from the type R that I haven't used. Not sure if I want to let them go though lol.

Thanks for considering letting them go. I need a Left hand version though unfortunately. I really appreciate it.

I had a Zillion Type-R on mine back in the day, but put a Steez A on my new AGS version...
They are nice. I like the look of the morethan as well.

If you have the money and don't mind spending it than go with the Morethan and don't look back.

I want one but the more I think about it, I probably shouldn't go that expensive on a frog reel. 200-250 is probably where I should set my max and really I could probably get away with a cheaper reel but this is TT.

I am using a Antares DC MD with the Steez XBD, but the new Morethan also works and looks beautifully.
