Steez nose piece and Drive shaft, OG zillion modified live guide and Mag dial centre, red screws and pawl cap, SLPbSS engine plate, hedgehog bfs bearings,

I like it! In what way did you modify the TD Z line guide to fit?

I have it on a Bone Voyage 634L BFS 4 piece rod, using it for 3 to 10 gram baits chasing Australian native species in the tropics.

I have now added a set of steez 100SH gears to it as the 6.3 wasn't quite fast enough and the 8.1 is too fast for what I want. the 7.1:1 is perfect, the Steez gears are a little heavier but are smoother and have a multi stack drag. I also added a drag clicker from oleg to it as well , very happy with how this reel has turned out.

Not to knock your creation, but why do so many insist upon Steezing up their SS's? I think they look great stock, especially the Light. I say well done, Namiki-san! Domo Arigato!

There is also the comfort factor. The steez nose piece does feel more comfortable when palming the reel

I like the angle. If I wrap my finger around the front, it fits right on top of the front plate. That's just me, though. That's also why the Zillion TWS palms better than the Tatula. The alphas is similar, too.
