How would you compare these reels to the newer Daiwas?

Probably the best platform Daiwa has ever created.  They were made in Japan, brass gears, tons of modifying parts, and tough/durable/smooth.

Very limited on drop in spool options. Tdz would be #1 for most people. I much prefer the new SV103 over the og zillion. Shares many of the same internal parts and frame but you get the 34mm spool. My J dream was nice but that’s from a collector standpoint. The og is still a great reel and still loved by many. It was my first quality Daiwa reel purchase.

Exactly why I got that :)

 

My Zillion 7.1.1 and Dobyns 704C is so sick for the lipless cranks.

I can bomb that out like no tomorrow with 3/8, 1/2, 5/8 rattle traps.

Yes that (spool options) was the only caveat.  But that is why I have so many SV103s...😎

 

Of that platform currently I have:

 

2 NIB Ito 103s

1 NIB TD-Z Type R

1 TD-Z Type R+

1 TD-Z/Ito Custom Hybrid 105H

2 TD-Z 105H

1 LNIB Fuego 100H

1 Zillion 103SHA

1 LNIB Zillion 50th Anniversary 100SHA

1 LNIB Megabass IP68

1 LNIB Megabass IP79

1 LNIB J-Dream 7.9

5 SV103H

5 SV103XS

1 TD-X Air Metal 103H

1 TD-X Air Metal 105H

 

I think that's it.  🤔

WOW, nice set you got there. 

I only have two of SV103H. I set one of the SV103 with Steez Spool to throw farther :)

They are two different animals - OG Zillions are true reels compare to the SV which I own two of them (SV103H)

Steez sv tw isn’t built like a tank like the og but it’s a better reel in terms of ergonomics and styling. It’s alao better for anything under 1/2oz. The og zillion has a heavy and deep spool that makes it a better choice for heavy duty applications. As for the og zillion being a true reel compared to the 103... well that’s mildly entertaining considering they’re built on the same frame and share a lot of the same internal parts. The sv103 is heavily braked but a simple spool swap to any of the 20 options available and you can make it do anything you want it to.

I have one and it's an amazing reel! Only problem is that the paint scratches sooo easily.

Looking at getting a Daiwa casting reel soon and some of the numbers can be hard to follow. What are the top three?

Top and bottom are lefty SV103H reels.  The middle looks like a Tatula CT lefty.

Big-Bass's eyes are good. Those reels top to bottom: SV103, Tatula CT, SV103, Tatula CT type r, and another tatula.

What is the difference in an SV103H and an SS SV 103?

BIG differences!! totally different platform basically. Most consider the SS models heavily over-braked.

The SV103H (6.3:1) and SV103XS (7.9:1) are based off of the original Zillion aluminum frame which was based off of the TD-Z/original Fuego frame.  The SV103 uses a 34mm spool, has brass gears, and has endless options (spools) with options of customization based both off the TD-Z and Zillion parts.

 

The SS SV103 came in a few different gear ratios and is based off of the Steez with a slightly different noseplate that now mimicks the SV Light reels in Japan.  The SS SV has aluminum gears.  This reel also accepts the 34mm spools so it has a variety of options as well as customizable parts from the Steez, etc. Yes, it can be viewed as overbraked but a quick spool change can eliminate that.  

 

Both are nice reels but both are very different.  I own and use both for different techniques.

So would I be correct in assuming the 103H would be better suited to heavier baits and more power fishing type presentations?
