I think you should look into this....

Alphas compared to curado 70's, I love the rigidity and smoothness of the alphas, they're also a very comfortable platform that sits a touch lower to the rod.  They seem to be able to throw all weights equally well whereas I sometimes run into trouble with the curado on the lighter side.

I have both the Shimano SLX 70 MGL and Daiwa Tatula SVTW70 reels. The Daiwa is very quite smooth retrieve, the spool is narrow .82 wide*. The Shimano is also very quite retrieving but slightly more noise casting. The Shimano spool is also narrow but .88 wide feel a lot wider, casting distance for both reels are very good.

I've been looking at the Daiwa Tatula SV TW 70 as my first Daiwa reel for a while now but couldn't find a schematic for it online, does anyone knows if it's got the double bearing pinion support or they call it hyperdrive?

It doesn't. It has a long spool shaft like typical Tatulas. I'm not sure why Daiwa is promoting these newer compact Tatulas as Hyper Double Support Pinions. However, if it's anything like the Tatula 80 I wouldn't worry about it. My 80 is almost Zillion G smooth. Might be the new gear teeth cut(hyperdrive) or the aluminum handle-side sideplate(Hyper-Armed Housing) or both. Whatever the reason, it's very smooth.

I've got both.  Both IMHO are great reels.  I simply don't like the "T-wing system".   I have a habit of keeping my index finger in contact with the line from below.  This lifts the line out of the slot and results in uneven spooling.   When I remember to make myself "feel" the line from above instead of below (pressing it down, instead of lifting it up) the reel is great.

In the US market it's the Tatula 300 and its variants like the Lexa TWs, the Zillion 1000, HD, and Steez variants, but it's implemented differently in the Tat 300. JDM it's the Alphas on up through Zillion and Steez variants. The Alphas SV is your least expensive route to a FFS Daiwa.
