All of their features piled into one magnesium reel


There is a laundry list of features packed into the Daiwa Steez SV TWS. I specifically tested the TW1016SV-SH which is a 7.1:1 gear ratio baitcasting reel that features 11 pounds of drag, 12 ball corrosion resistant ball bearings plus a roller bearing. It includes their T-Wing System (TWS) for cast control, giving the line more room to flow off the spool for longer smoother casts. This reel also features their SV Spool concept that eliminates the back and forth play and gives the reel a more free flowing operation that minimizes backlash while improving casting distance even with lighter lures. The G1 Duraluminum spools give them increased strength with reduced weight without having to drills the spools to eliminate weight. 

The results of all these features is a super smooth operating reel that makes using a baitcaster a joy for any level of experience in bass fishing. I love fishing with this reel. I’ve fished weightless senkos and magnum jerkbaits with this reel. I’ve thrown topwaters and lipless baits on it. I’ve skipped jigs and Chatterbaits around with it. It’s a beautifully performing reel. It just feels like such quality in your hand from the operation to the ergonomics.
