Get Your STEEZ On!

DAIWAs new STEEZ SV achieves the pinnacle in baitcasting reel design and performance. 

Outdoor enthusiasts climb the ladder of quality. In fishing, the progression usually starts in our youth with an inexpensive spinning combo or spincast setup. Once fully infected by the sport, you upgrade spinning gear and start dabbling with baitcasters. Its about that time you center on a specific brand and continue climbing the ladder of quality.

How high does that ladder go? DAIWA knows. 

That apex is called STEEZ SV, an unmatched baitcasting reel that flaunts DAIWAs newest and greatest technologies and features in an impressively compact frame. Until DAIWA decides to make a better one, STEEZ SV stands as the finest baitcasting reel ever built.

DAIWA introduced its first STEEZ model in the spring of 2006. Since, along its pathway of progressive innovations, the STEEZ series has earned elite status amongst hardcore bass anglers. And the newest rendition STEEZ SV continues the series life journey of perpetually improving.

Its the best baitcasting reel out there, says DAIWA Marketing Manager and avid angler Marc Mills with matter-of-fact confidence. Its the absolute apex, refined to an unbelievable level. Just hold one and youll know it.

Discussing the eminent reel, Mills points out the new STEEZ SVs redesigned T-Wing System (TWS). We improved the angles of DAIWAs signature TWS design, yielding even less resistance on the cast, which means more distance. The same redesigned T-Wing System also significantly reduces backlash.

Mills also notes that the 90mm swept handle has been moved closer to the reel. The result is a shorter torque on the gears and bearings, providing smoother, more durable operation. The grip is secure and its handling precise as well. 



A distortion-proof frame that unifies magnesium and aluminum to steadfastly house the gear unit within the reel body. The concept comprises a combination of different manufacturing techniques, which considerably improve the functioning and lifespan of the reel.


A gear design by DAIWA that makes gear teeth more efficient at transferring power, resulting in a smoother, more powerful gear set that also reduces gear noise. The gears are also strengthened by larger teeth in the traction wheel.


The pinion gear is mounted via a ball bearing at both sides, leading to a better and more even powered transmission from the handle. As well, the surface of the pinion gear is specially treated to prevent electrostatic corrosion.


The clutch mechanics have been optimized to remain safely in position even on hard casts.

Collectively, the HYPERDRIVE SYSTEM puts the STEEZ SV in a league of its own.

Exquisite features continue with DAIWAs SV Booster System with A7075 SV Spool. The latest iteration of the innovative SV Concept, the SV Booster System is a two-stage SV braking system. The casting control you have come to know and love from our SV System, now with even more casting distance and better accuracy.

Stopping and managing fish is advanced with the STEEZ SVs Ultimate Tournament Drag (UTD). DAIWAs UTD system combines ultra smooth low inertia with maximum fish stopping power. UTD combines advanced carbon washers, alloy, and stainless steel drag plates with specially designed grease for impeccable performance.

When it comes to guaranteeing the new STEEZ SV, DAIWA put their money where their mouth is. The luxurious reel comes with the executive STEEZ 5-Year Service Warranty against manufacturing defects. To that, you receive FREE 5-year cleaning and servicing turned around in one business day upon arrival at DAIWA, pending parts availability. Then, DAIWA expedites its return with 2nd Day Air or Priority Mail.
