Re: Is the Steez SV TW currently the best low profile bass reel on the market?

The SV TW and the A after a spool swap are the best reels I've personally ever used. Not necessarily because of performance but because of ergonomics and how smooth they are. Performance wise, they are top notch but I've used reels and spools that perform, casting wise, similar.

Re: '19 Steez ct sv tw

I am curious, do we have spool weights for comparison for the Alpahs ct sv Millionaire ct sv Steez ct sv Spool of Alphas ct sv weights 9.4 gram: Alphas ct spool weight.JPG And because SLP works RCSB spool should be significantly lighter (maybe 15%) I naturally ordered it. Also that might be a sligh...

Re: Is the Steez SV TW currently the best low profile bass reel on the market?

Why can't I defend my opinion? No one else is. An old boss told me one time "toot your own horn because no one else will." And he was right. Here we go again...I didn't say you couldn't bud. But if you're going to post, for whatever reason, that a "major reel manufacturer calls forums helpless" and...

I get it. Shame. This is exactly mine, and everybody elses point about your "help". I said LMG was ...

Re: TD-Z drag issue

There's a tiny flat washer that sits right above the bearing resting on top of the AR bearing and below the clicking drag. If you don't have this washer, tightening down the drag will cause the reel to do what yours is doing. Worth looking into.

Re: '19 Steez ct sv tw

There has been a lot of talk about how the Steez CT performs. The insides overall are pretty much the same as the Steez SV TW. Biggest change would be with the main gear. It has ridges in the inner rim of the main gear that a spring loaded pin rubs on to create the buzz sound when the drag pulls ou...

Assuming you can still get them, it's +/- 20$. I've replaced a couple 1016 hoods that were either 14$ or 24$.

Re: OG Zillion Gear Swap

Take the side plate off, pull the main gear and pinion out. Grease the new set and put it in place. Put the drag stack on and close the reel up. Super easy and doesn't take more than a couple minutes.

Re: Alphas CT 70 in stock at Digitaka!

Was able to just yard cast this reel for a while today. This reel is great. Really impressed with this 30mm SV spool so far. I've got 10# sniper on mine tossing a weightless wacky rigged 4" senko. Really effortless casts with this. Glad I got it.

Re: Alphas CT 70 in stock at Digitaka!

Mine just came in. First impression...that is one tiny spool in hand. It does hold a surprisingly large amount of line. Not a ton but alot more than I anticipated..which is a good thing. Right now it's on a DX742C. Haven't done much casting yet. 25mph winds and it's 30 degrees says that will wait. S...

Same color, weird. Anyone notice the Steez SV TW is not listed on the website?

Re: Drilling an Avail 16ALD15 Spool

This actually wouldn't be too hard. Mapping it out via Cad or any visual rendering program would be pretty simple. Getting the correct circumference of the porting to balance out correctly would be the tedious part.
