So how are SV BOOST spools?

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.

As it was explained to me in previous posts, since TT originated tackle reviews on the internet, anyone else reviewing tackle on the www is therefore copying TT.
That is so small-minded!

What makes his analysis wrong or deserving of the copycat label?
Just to clarify, the powers that be here on TT coded it so every time anyone types out the name of that youtube channel, it automatically converts it to "copycat site."

As it was explained to me in previous posts, since TT originated tackle reviews on the internet, anyone else reviewing tackle on the www is therefore copying TT. Someone feel free to correct me if I got this wrong.
I see that now, I wrote TA a few times and it converted it. I have seen other channels mentioned without the name change...

Nothing is different, even the same part numbers. Turns out "hyper" is all hype.
Try not to let your mind wander. It is much too small to be outside unsupervised.

A friend sent me a different Japanese YouTube video comparing the main gear teeth. One appears more U shaped, and the other more V shaped. It's hard to tell.

Practically speaking, you will feel zero difference between the ltd and sv tw proper when cranking them. Possible difference in long term durability? I don’t know if that will be noticeable in the reel’s lifetime with me. It’s not like there have been any durability issues with the original sv tw gearing.

The only noticeable practical difference I see is that the casting seems even more effortless for distance and control over a range of lure weights 1/8-3/8ths oz. Sure, it’s an unnecessary luxury since the steez sv tw is a casting machine to begin with. But, when dabbling with anything high end, one is usually straying into unnecessary luxury.

One thing that did disappoint me is the apparent lack of difference in the clutch mechanism. I was hoping for extra durability like the advertising seemed to imply since I currently have 2 OG zillions (totally different reels) sitting on injured reserve where that mechanism has conked out on them and a reel tech will have to found to help me out. So I thought it might be more long term bullet proof over the years in that department. But oh well.

I think it was obvious from the youtube videos/pics already how the SV Boost works, but essentially 2 springs.

I also looked video; 2 springs. Hoping that SV Boost parts fits to older SV brakes...SV boosted ct Alphas would sound good if possible :)

Will the Steez SV boost have the same spool as the Zillion SV Boost?

I found the Zillion spool has weight 13.4g
the Steez spool has 13.1g
Practically the same spools
