Re: Reel frame painting

Shane has stepped away from painting reels. He’s got a few to finish up first but after that he’s taking a break.

Re: Steez a tension knob

Daiwa recommends with sv reels to loosen the cast control cap until there’s a slight wiggle in the spool and then add clicks until the wiggle stops and then back it off 1 click. Since that reel doesn’t have a clicking ccc then dial it back until it wiggles and then turn it until it doesn’t wiggle an...

Re: Steez SV TW castability compared to Tat SV TW

I tested 3 spools in my Steez sv tw after buying it. All had Zpi sic bearings installed and I tested baits from 5/16-1/2oz all day long in winds of about 8-10mph. Stock G1 1016 spool Zillion G1 1016 spool Zpi Nrc001 pg spool The zillion 1016 spool in the Steez sv tw performed the best. It was able ...

Re: Spool to increase Zillion PE distance?

PE spool has always been said to be a good upgrade to the zillion platforms. I put one in my J dream and enjoyed the performance of it but I was using 3/8+ baits. The hlc is another spool I’ve heard good things about. A good clean/flush of the bearings might help you out if they’re dirty. Another op...

Re: Steez SV TW castability compared to Tat SV TW

The Steez isn’t going to outcast it by $350 difference in price. I own the Steez sv tw. It is a great reel but I don’t feel it’s worth it’s retail price tag. Luckily I got mine for a great deal. It’s the only reason I own it right now honestly. I’d say unless you’re an enthusiast and need to have h...

Re: Steez A Question

Both reels use a 34mm spool. You can swap them around without issue. The 1016 will fit and should give you wht you’re looking for.

Re: Is there a way to increase the braking force on the OG Steez?

Sounds more like you need to get better at using your thumb. I’ve had a 1st gen steez with RCS 1000 spool and it was nowhere as bad as you’re saying it is. I used the 1016 spool in mine the most and it was also not that bad. I rarely exceeded 6 on the brake dial with any situation.

They will fit with some modifications. I just saw a video of the finished product today.
