Customer Reviews

Comments: This is the best reel I've ever bought for under $100. I've had it for almost a year now & like stated below it has great drag & cast for miles. Three months ago I went on vacation at the beach & brought it along, well for two weeks straight & the salt water, sand & the fish gave it a brutal beating. Even after all the elements it never once derailed from being smooth casting machine. After getting back from vacation I made the mistake of not washing my reels off & 6 weeks later it was time to go fishing. Needless to say without a drop of oil or grease I picked it up & went fishing without a single problem!

From: Dill: MO 3/25/15

Comments: This thing seriously casts a mile. I hate to say that it outperforms my lew's reels but it does. this is a massive step up for daiwa from their other reels under $120. I've got the 7:1 ratio reel and i never have any backlash problems period, and its durable.
