Steez A 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.

They are pretty fast. EMS is usually 3 days to customs. Once it get to customs keep your fingers crossed.

Back in June I ordered my Steez A in the morning on Tuesday 19th and it was at my door Saturday afternoon on the 23rd. Took 4 days.

That's really quick. I ordered mine very early July 31st (work 3pm-11pm). Not sure what time it was over there, but I hope it gets here soon. Know anyone wanting an extra Steez A spool???

Save it. You never know what you can use it on in the future. I'm planning to use my steez a spool in my sv103 once I upgrade the steez a.

So my Steez A just came in, I am happy so far. Feels very well greased, it is very smooth but the handle doesn't turn freely after a good spin (not that it matters). My question is about the spool, I didn't know it would be this light... I got 13 grams WITH BEARING multiple times. If this spool does end up in my SS/SV and I don't sell it, it will need a good acetone bearing bath first, you can tell the bearings are oiled pretty heavy/thick themselves. Maybe it is just me, but I do think a 100mm Tatula HD handle with the SV105 style knobs will be great. This reel is much smaller than I imagined, but a 100mm will do fine, and the SV105 will get the Steez A's 90mm.

A guy on here, Trey Harpel I think had a youtube video of a tricked out Steez, think he said the ZPI weighed 6 grams WITH bearing. That is stupid lightweight, said the stock 1012 G1 SV was 10 grams (thumbnail in video shows 8 grams).
Here is that video link:

Is the ZPI M (shallow one) even lighter? I'm getting a new spool, whether I sell the SS/SV spool, the Steez A spool, or even the 1016 Zillion SV spool.

Right now I am mainly torn between the shallow ZPI and the 1012 G1 SV. That fixed inductor worries me, I've got a good thumb, and I know ZPI builds good stuff, just not sure if it will be different than I'm used to.

Thank you for sharing the picture, Sir!!

So from what i see on the picture, there are only bearing and the pin stopper. ( basically there are no cage/cup bearing and no bearing retaining clip like what they have in stock and SV spool ), Correct me if I am wrong.

It is just the bigger bearing that fits, doesn't need the cage. That is how the Steez A bearing is, if you run an SV spool you need the cage and bearing or just have the stock bearing to replace the cage/bearing combo.

I am a little aggravated now, I spooled up the stock Steez A spool with some braid backing, then added 12lb Invizx. I went on to respool the Zillion SV TW G1 spool with braid backing and my all time favorite HiSeas Quattro Camo fluoro (this is the spool my Steez A will get) and a burred edge piece of line let me only fill it about 90%. No big deal, its all good but this has happened twice now with HiSeas line. Once they sent me a new spool and the other time they didn't believe me. Lucky for them their line is amazing so I will keep using it. Just do not know why some spools have a random burr down in them.

I am going to give the stock Steez A spool a few yard tries, but for now I am still selling it.

After using the Zillion TWS DIY spool I really wish all of my spools were shallow. It is really nice to save weight and just put the line on you need. For example, it would have been much easier to fix the short-spooling I experienced with the G1 1016 if it had been a 1012.
