Sv Spool = Wow

Recommended Posts

Picked up the 1000 SV shallow spool for my Steez 100. Well it was nice enough out today that I spooled it with #50 braid '#12 mono' and did some yard fishing. All I had tied in was a jika rig without plastic that tipped the scales at 7.5 grams. Reel has lightly lubed Boca os7 bearings. Mag brake was on 3 and spool tension loose enough that when the lure hit the ground it causes an overun. First cast without any thumb I spooled it. Same the next. I'm thinking there is no way I'm making an 80 yard cast so I went back and looked up capacity online. Sure enough that was for the deep spool. Shallow spool will hold 80 yards of #10 sized line. Having no #40 I went with #30. I'm still blown away at the distance I'm getting with just a 1/4oz bait. I had the RCS 1016 spool in there prior to this and this spool I feel outshines it.

I have been considering the SV shallow and RCS 1012 for use in my TD-Z's for lighter lines/lures (6 or 8lb test).  I used the 1016 with 8lb test last year on my TD-Z 103P for some small cranks and it worked awesome.  I just don't need that much capacity with 8 lb line so considering other options.  It's looking to be an expensive playground!

Do they make a shallow spool for a diawa lexa 100

They don't make any spool options for a lexa that I'm aware of.

I plugged one into all my Daiwa reels with the exception of my T3 Mx. It has a 1016 spool in it which is pretty special itself. Alphas SV is next up in the line up. Can't wait.

Interesting. I have a SS SV, and I don't like the SV spool since it feels too tame for me. Maybe I will try an Steez SV to make for sure.

The Aird spool is slightly shallower. I don't believe it will give any performance benefits though.

Im thinking my next reel will be a chronarch 51 because of all the upgrades. I want to build a finesse baitcaster

There's a ton of upgrades for Daiwa. Even more than Shimano for oem spool options that are interchangeable. You just have the wrong Daiwa.

If you get a chance, can you try it with an 1/8th oz and report what kind of performance you get?

Too tame? Like too much brake? It did tame the reel down but verse the 1016 spool it gets more distance and isn't as finicky. The 1016 was an improvement over the stock spool. It did the same thing for the reel as what the SV just did.

Yeah if it's decent out tomorrow I'll get you some feedback on 1/8th.

I can get better distance on my SS SV with the break set to 0, using only thumb (my thumbing is pretty subpar imo), so that kind of turned me off. I read that SS SV has stronger breaking than Steez(can't confirm), so maybe I will like the Steez SV more.

Thanks, you using the Phoenix rod for your testing?

This was a Dobyns dx 704.

I'll have to use the 713 probably for 1/8th.

The 1016 spool is realky nice. The SV spools are special. In the past Shimano has always been easier to cast for newbs with their VBS. Now with Daiwa putting the SV spool in many of their reels I think Daiwa is easier to cast. Those SV spool is almost idiot proof....almost.

Yeah I can't really say yes or no. I know the Steez sv spool and the t3 sv spool are the same. Not sure about the ss sv spool.

I would think other than color it was. Maybe someone else will chime in.

The SV103 spool from the Steez is slightly lighter than the SV1000, and the spool shaft is a little longer. I tried the SV spool and 1016 in a Steez and found the SV much more tame as well. It was not as tame as the SS SV though. I prefer the 1016 for distance, since it's a little more wild. The SV is great for trouble free casting and throwing lighter stuff, but I felt like it definitely had a stronger braking profile.

A Shimano 51 is a good choice for a finesse reel but for the opposite reason you mentioned, really. The stock 51 handles most finesse duties very well and it's the most economical option to get into finesse casting.

 

If you'd like to stay Daiwa, the PX Type R is a monster but she'll cost ya. The upside is that the PX is ready to roll out of the box, no tinkering necessary. For other options, the Alphas platform is a finesse favorite but it suffers from a lack of spool options and a non-clicking drag star. The Alphas SV might address both of those weaknesses, but that's all speculation as it is slated for a March(?) release. You could always take a TD-Z 103/105 and drop a 105 SV spool in it, but finding TD-Z's in good cosmetic shape for a fair price is easier said than done.

I'm not sure of your budget but you can pick up a used Daiwa px68 for right at $200 shipped. It's a finesse reel straight out of the box.
