(SLP TATULA "Click" works?) Is it possible to install clicking spool tensioner on SV103?

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.

even if this guy would have made them available to buy, i don't think i would want to glue that piece to the frame and i don't see how it would hold with that little surface area.

They're pressed on but will come off if you work at it. The guy who makes the piece doesn't seem to respond to anyone's messages from what I've heard. I also messaged him with no response. I ordered the SS SV special washer kit from Hedgehog and that will allow you to use any of the Steez style cast control knobs available. Without the kit it's not a snug fit and adjustment is crap. Been there tried that already. Works great with the kit though.

Sorry guys, Busted up my shoulder and was forced to stay away from fishing. Locator cuff in my cast shoulder.

Didn't seem to be that much interest in them and the pro's did nothing but bad mouth them............... So as to not tease myself with fishing topic. I just drank beer!! :( :doh:

I still have a few of the original lot left. and can make more if needed!! ;)

Not glue! Epoxy and it holds fine, Mines going on 2 plus years and no issues even when sonic tank cleaned!

OEM zillion is also bonded IIRC with epoxy. Add some heat(375*F) and it will come out rather easy. ;)

I’d be interested in 2 of them myself. Have they all been tested to make sure they function 100% ?
I believe Ian has a few from your first run and he mentioned that he could only make a couple work fully.

Yes, Ian poo poo'd em. He wants drop in's and with manufacturers and machining tolerance stack ups. Its not possible!! A parts changer likely wouldn't be able to handle the mod. Just sayin!!

I've got 10 plus SV103 reels tweaked and even did a Fuego for E73Bass and I haven't heard a complaint from....... At least he never complained directly to me anyway!! I also have 15 SS SV's and a few Tatula's with moded clicking CCC's Doing tourney duty as well...

An oem fiber washer from a ZLN SV TW(see pic- item #58) is all that's needed to keep the click spring from popping out of position. I like the ZLN SV TW CCC as well(color of choice) As it is not as tall as the ZLN OG CCC. With the OG cap, You may need to install a thinker spacer/washer under the CCC. This will keep the CCC from bottoming out on the side plate before spool tension is achieved. See pic, #8 is the spacer thickness you'll need to play with. I can include an assortment if need be?? Easy peazy IMHO!! Or just buy a zillion side plate and paint them if you'd like??
