I've heard this reel is going to retail for around $700 in the states! Not sure if that is true or not though.

 

I will be a player on the Alphas CT.

I would be too if it were not gloss black.

The reel will sell for around $500, it holds a small amount of line, and does not have an external brake dial, also the body is magnesium so that's a no for saltwater use. Seems like a complete failure in my book. 

 

My favorite reel is still my Steez A TWS.

Yes, it does have an external dial. It's on the underside of the reel. The reel's supposed to be more expensive than the current Steez SV TW which will, after Daiwa's 2019 2% price increase across the board starting to come, be closer to 520$. Guessing that puts this new 30mm spool Steez around the 575(Ish) mark when it gets sent stateside. 

 

I won't be bothering with this reel. Love the Steez SV TW and Steez A's.

I am always intrested in small frame

reels but I didn’t feel like the Steez SV TW was “worth” $500 so if I do get a Steez CT it will be once they hit the used market.  

 

I really wish the Alphas CT looked better, I love the Alphas frame reels but there are so many better looking variants out there.  I am also a bit cranky Daiwa went with a 30mm spool instead of a 31mm one.

TW has the Steez SV TW up to $550 and the A at $500 due to the 1/15/19 price increase.  With all this new stuff coming out, I am just happy that I have my SV105s and SV103s.  Newer is often nicer, but not always better.

These prices are indeed high...even for the enthusiast level.  I have a couple of the new steez tw's, but paid $380.  Most I've ever paid for a reel.  When the government reopens and the dollar gets stronger, I will be game for at least the new certate.

I am very happy my sv103’s and sv105’s but I do prefer the Steez SV/A frame size and shape to the sv103.
