Zillion SV TW 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.

Zillion SV TW question

Postby Hogsticker2 » Sun Oct 28, 2018 9:28 pm

Are there two of these floating around? On another forum, I saw a for sale post where the guy says he bought his from Japan, and the one's coming from Japan (JDM) are made in Japan. Is this accurate?

Yes, that’s sad but true but today there’s only few Daiwa’s Made in Japan.

Made in Japan TWS HLC Zillion would be nice.

The zillion sv tw 1016 G1 spools I have say real four real custom on the side. Just like the rcs 1016 but without the RCS letters. My steez sv tw 1016 G1 only says real for on it. So could it be the spool is made in, or from Japan since RCS is a jdm company? No clue if it works that way or not. I do know it’s a great spool though. I think I’m up to having 4 now.

The power model and XH models plus the SLP Works model are all for the JDM market but still made in Thailand
