Steez line question

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.

Steez line question

Post by rockchalk06 » Fri Jul 10, 2015 10:47 pm

I recently picked up my first Steez. Its the SV103H-TN.

My question is, I have read some on this reel being finicky with Fluoro. My plan was to run this with 10-12# InvisX or the same with YoZuri Hybrid. Whats everyone's experience with this reel and Fluoro? I will be paring this with a DX 3 power rod for light Swim Jigs, Mojo Rigs etc.

Thanks in advance!

I've fished mine with 15# fluoro while throwing spinnerbaits/chatterbaits and I've NEVER had a problem. 8-)

I fish 15# p-line 100% on mine and do everything from pitching to small swim baits and spinner baits. Never an issue.

Thank you. I went ahead and spooled up with #12 InvizX and doused it with KVD. I was hitting close to 35 yards with a 1/4 oz Swim Jig and no trailer. Its a whole different animal casting that I'm used it. Impressed in an understatement. \:D/

I had issues with fluoro on my 103hla, but when I added the sv spool it was a dream. The sv makes all the difference in the world.

I have Steez Limited 8.1 and running 10lb Sunline fluoro on it.
No problem at all.

you will have no issues as you have the SV spool, on the old 103 you had a type R+ spool that is quite temperamental with sitff flouro.
