Daiwa SVTW after two years
« on: September 08, 2019, 03:21:23 PM »

I switched my reel use to Daiwa TAT SVTW103 series in the late spring of 2017.  I now am on my third year with these reels that all have been serviced one time by Mike Cork. 

As it turns out this series of reels have been a blessing for my personal performance and have eliminated all of the backlash problems I was experiencing with my Lews reels.  Cast control including distance have been exceptional no mater what presentation style I am executing.  If I have any issues it would be that I am not a big fan of the T Wing but have not really experienced any issues.  I just note that the line may not always fall into the slot on the t wing.   The other thing would be that on the 8 speed reels (XS model) they perform well but just don't feel as solid as the (HS or the H) models.  Once again the reels will be sent down to Mike over the winter months for routine service but at this time I have no problems to report just will be requesting routine cleaning and inspection.

Like many I would love to have a few SV103s but those are very hard to find let alone affordable.  I will however keep looking.  I would like to have a bit more line capacity and eliminate the T Wing.  I am an absolute believer in the SV spool and could not imagine even thinking about anything else.  I hope mine last forever.

You can get the Zillion SV TW for what you can get the SV103 for. I know you said try one without the T Wing, but if you like it, then the Zillion is all the same feel, with an SV spool. It's got more line capacity.

its exactly why i hoarded as many SV103's as I could when they were dumped.

I do have one of the zillion sv's, and like Matt said, its a good one too.

I've been looking for a lefty SV103 for a couple of months. None to be found so I settled for Zillion SV TWS. I prefer the non-TWS line guide on the SV103 for throwing squarebills on flouro.

Not a bad choice. I mainly use my zillion Sv tea for skipping and small swimbaits.
