Sougayilang LV100

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.

Sougayilang LV100

Postby Big-Bass » Sat Jan 13, 2018 6:06 am

Saw these cheap reels on Walmart.com for $29 and my first thought was they look like a copy of a TD-Z/OG Fuego/Zillion. They actually look sort of cool and wondered if anyone has fished with one. The reviews of the reel on Amazon (though no longer in stock) are decent. Youtube doesn't have much of anything but it peaked my interest. For $29, I might give it a try and see just how "bad" it is.

The Automatic Cable Ceramic Outlet Hole is amazing tech. You should sell all your SV103s and replace them with the much superior Sougayilang LV100s.

Haha! Never! Those SV reels are my favorites outside of my Chronarch SF and Calais 100A. This reel just "looks" intriguing...that's why I asked the original question.

I forgot to mention that I will buy those icky SV103s off you for $40 a piece to get rid of them. They're just too heavy and old to be viable today.

So I bought one more or less just to see how junkie the reel is. It was $29 shipped to my door for this thing. It is definitely a copy of a TD-Z/OG Zillion/SV103 with a Steez style handle on it. I hate to say it, but it is smooth considering and the free spool is really good. It may only last a few trips but it only cost me what a spool of good braid or flouro would cost so what the heck.
