Those are solid. They will last you a lifetime. I've got 11 of the OG platform including:
2-Zillion 6.3 ratio
2-Zillion 7.1 ratio
2-Zilion 7.3 ratio (1 50th Anniversary)
1-TD Fuego 5.7 ratio
1-TD Fuego 6.3 ratio
2-SV103 7.9 ratio
1-SV103 6.3 ratio

This platform is still king in my hands.

I was ready to buy a Megabass IP or two before the SV103 came out. They are both awesome. It would be nice to add one for fun eventually. I've really got more reels than I need with all of the other platforms that I have.

Right now it shares time with a GLX843 MBR until I get another one or find a better light swimbait rig.

Thank you.

I’m not 100% sold on it yet. I can’t get it to tame fluoro and get much distance. I’ve since switched to braid and it’s better. It’s definitely fast.

I like both versions of the new Zpi spools in a T3 and Steez SV TW best. Little too fast or much too fast in everything else I've tried.
