Yeah, let us know what tool is needed to remove and install the taper pins. Looks like a beefy pair of tweezers. Small neeedle nose may work?
How does the spring swap affect skipping? If it can't skip a wacky 4'' senko thumb free with your eyes closed then it is a bit of a step backwards IMO. If I valued distance more than control I would opt for a non SV spool rather than mod an SV. So... how does a stiff spring SV perform? What non SV s...
I've heard of these mods to the SV spools how does it affect skipping? I would be worried that a loss of low speed control would ruin the the skipability of the spool.

The market on the gen 1 Steez has fallen through the floor. Now is the time to buy and I would like another 103 reel. Which one has the Type R + as its stock spool again?

With the Alphas I'd go with a Zonda spool if you can find one or a BFS spool if you want to go that route. The DIY BFS spools are really fast even though they are Air Brake. The tapered inductors they...
If it becomes a problem then you'll have to send her in to get fixed. In my case I was able to mitigate the problem by loosing the dial screw a bit because the problem only occurred when it was tightened down all the way.
For me the Ned rig is a distance orientated technique where I fan cast and cover water swiming the bait. My SS SV didn't cast the Ned nearly as far as my Alphas SV until I swapped in the DIY spool. If your idea of a Ned rig is to fish it like a shakey head on the bottom and cast to targets then the ...
My SS SV does this real bad. I'll go to scroll the dial and it acts as if it has disconnected from the internal mechanism and rotates freely. I'll have to loosen the screw and scroll the dial until it drops back in place then tighten the screw down again. I just run the screw a litle looser than my ...
