My Collection of Reels

Postby Tony9 » Thu Feb 02, 2017 3:14 pm

Hi. I just wanted to share with everybody on TT my collection of reels. The community here is just awesome and I am glad to be a part of it. I've learned so much technical knowledge from here. I joined almost a year ago with only 1 baitcaster, a Pflueger Supreme XT. I got it on sale at BPS and it also came with a free rod. After fishing it a few times, I wasn't happy with the performance of it and wanted something more. I sold it, and after much research here on the forums, I bought a Daiwa Zillion SV TW. And that's when the bug hit me... Onto the pictures listed in order of acquisition. Enjoy!

Daiwa Zillion SV TW SHL

Nice collection so far.

Maybe Steez, Aldebaran, Metanium or Core? Seems you're missing magnesium framed reels. :)

+1 8-)

Really liking this collection so far. Nice assortment that includes the OG Zillion & Alphas platforms. Top it off with the CQ 101! Also agree that a Steez or Metanium would be a really nice addition...

Thanks! I think my next reel will be a magnesium one. Either a Steez or the BFS Aldebaran, it seems to be the lightest one compared to the new Conquest BFS and Scorpion BFS.

Alphas SV 105SHL - Phenix Recon 2 PHX-C683
Alphas SV 105L - Megabass Levante Flatside Special F4.5-70C
Luna 103L - G.Loomis E6X 845C CBR
Komodo 364L - Dobyns Fury FR795SB
SV103 XSL - Daiwa Tatula TAT741HFB
Zillion SV TW - Fenwick Nighthawk FNH70MH-FC (Free rod from BPS :oops: )
Conquest 101HG - St. Croix Legend Elite EC70MHF

I want to replace the Fenwick eventually. I'm still waiting for the 2017 Destroyer lineup to be announced and will decide between those or the Orochi XXX. The Conquest will move there for moving baits. The Zillion SV will go on the St. Croix LE for primarily bottom contact and pitching.

Nice lineup!
If you're considering a magnesium reel, I'd vote a td-Ito. Especially since you fish left handed reels and can get the 7.1 gear upgrade.

Sweet reels. Are the SV reels as good as Al Linder says they are? Does the spool perform on all the different reels the same. I have a lot to learn about those spools.

Nice! I really like your round ones! Jealous of the Luna 103. I hope it will be my first rounder for bass, they aren't easy to find. What teqnuiques do you use the Luna and conquest for? A TD-z or a steez would be a nice addition to your line up. I have a alphas sv and a couple sv 103's love em.
