Diawa sv options (no t-wing)

Recommended Posts

Like the title says, what are my options (if any) for a diawa reel with the sv spool and no t-wing? My Google searches have been fruitless so far and I'm hoping some of you guys can point me in the right direction.

Alpha variants

TD-Z variants

OG steez

If you’re referring to any of their newer offerings, then you really don’t have any. A new Alphas variant will come out around the time of the classic. It looks nice and has me interested. Tons of older reels will accept a 34mm sv spool though. The sv technology is is just the braking of the spool. The SV103 and SV105 are both discontinued but were nice reels. There is a Steez SV103 that’s also pretty nice but they still pull too much $ imo for what it is. The 1st gen Steez reels are cheap these days and you can put an sv spool in one of those. Same with the Td-z which is the reel that lead to the Steez.

Ok, so nothing newer... probably why I was having so much trouble doing my own searches. Thanks for your help gentlemen.

The older reels are better anyways.  If you want a non T Wing Daiwa get an SV103 and change the stock spool out to whatever SV spool or non SV spool you want.  You can use the stock SV spool but it is a little over braked.  The SV103 is an awesome platform and actually a TD Zillion.

Why don’t you want the T-wing?

I fish bottom contact baits with a finger under my line and that would most likely push the line up out of the open topped line guide. That and I'm never a fan of unnecessary moving parts. Even if the t-wing gave me a solid 30 extra feet of casting distance (highly doubtful) I wouldn't want it on my jig rod. I skip just ok with a fuego or tournament mb and was wanting to give the sv spool a shot to see if it would make things easier.
