Featuring a large, open profile for optimum ergonomics and handling, the Daiwa Laguna Casting Reel is the exclusive American model. A killer reel for a great price.

Comments: This is an excellent reel, and you cant beat it for the price as well! This would be an excellent starter baitcast reel and i feel like it will out perform most $100 price range reels as well. I definitely will be purchasing more of these reels in the future.

From: Wes: Seminole, Oklahoma

Comments: This reel performs very well for the price. The retrieve is smooth, and casting distance is good. My only complaint is the location of the magnetic break dial: when you palm the reel, its easy to accidentally change the setting, occaisonaly leading to a backlash until you get used to not bumping it.

From: Ryan: IL

Comments: this reel is garbage. For some reason the line (12lb p-line fluoro) keep on getting stuck on the inside of the spool. Feels crappy and drag isn't all that great.

From: Sai

Comments: this reel is not bad i like the way it feels it is smooth and cast very well for the price you can buy a few of them

From: Dan: New Bedford, MA

Comments: Got the left handled model of this with a 7' Aird rod.  I am a novice at best with baitcasters, but got this rig to throw small swimbaits for spotted bay bass in SD Bay.  After dialing in the cast control, I was able to throw lures down to 3/8 with only one minor backlash all day. My reel was not noisy at all.  Smooth, and nice drag.  Good reel.

From: BV: San Diego, CA

Comments: Affordable and Reliable, Aside from bieng loud on the retrieve no problems with this reel, well worth the money.

Comments: Stuck the 7:1 version on a buzz bait rod, and then moved it to a 6' custom wrap made as a "sniper" blade rod. Its a good reel, reliable and smooth. For the $60 range, its great. Caught lots up to 6-2 with it so far. The main issue thus far is the cast control. It uses the same setup as my Fuego, but its fairly easy to move the dial on a cast. For blades this hasn't been a big deal, but it took some getting used to. Otherwise, no loud gearing or noisy level wind teeth. Great for the price.

From: Chris

Comments: Great reel casts like a dream little noisy but overall a great reel with an awesome price!

From: Ryan: Temecula, CA

Comments: Really nice reel for the buck, casts far and feels smooth. The only thing that bothers me is that my index finger rests on the magnetic brake dial when i palm it, and sometimes i will accidentaly change the setting. If it holds up I will probably be buying another one or two.

Comments: I bought me 2 of these reels on Amazon. I only paid 47 dollars each. Man did I get a good deal. These little reels are about the size of the curado 50 series and I promise you they will cast as good as the curado. It's hard to find a descent reel for 50 bucks anywhere. When I first used the reel it was kinda loud in the gear box. I got back home and tore it down and oiled it up reel good and now it is quiet as a mouse. If you have a young fisherman who needs a good reel, get him one of these Laguana reels and you will have a fishing buddy for life. Great little reel and you can't go wrong.

From: William: Hohenwald, TN

Comments: this reel is amazing for the price but the only thing that daiwa could have improved is the shape of the drag with it u can't loosen and titan it as much but overall it is a pretty good reel.

From: Mission Veijo

Comments: AMAZING. this real is small and compact amazing reel for the price recommend for anything

From: Matthew: League City, Houston

Comments: This reel, for the price, is pretty sweet! It casts well and far...Has great control over a fish, it's sturdy, easy to use and cheap enough you can buy a few and not feel broke...It's not my Steez, but for the price it's worth having for a sidekick everyday reel!

From: Shark: Where Blue Angels Fly, MD

Comments: For 60 bucks this reel simply can't be beat. A nice feature you will not find on other reels at this price point is a clicking drag star. As easy to palm as the Shimano Citica. Not blingy, but simple and satisfying. The only knock I have is no free floating spool which makes it a little more prone to backlash. I also upgraded the bearings to ABEC 5's for an extra 20 dollars. When my Shimanos burn out (if they ever do), I will purchase more of these to replace them. And with the new Daiwa rods under a hundred bucks, who needs to drop 3 to 4 bills for a nice set up?

From: Mark Spokane, WA

Comments: GOT THIS REEL IN OCT 2011 AND LET ME TELL YOU ITS NOT BAD ,NOT BAD AT ALL ONCE YOU GET IT SET UP ,THE GEARS GET A LITTLE ROUGH FEELING BUT IT CAST LIKE A DREAM JUST PLAY WITH THE SPOOL SPEED A LITTLE IF YOU GET BACKLASH SET MAG DRAG AT ABOUT 7 TO 8 IT REALLY WORKED WELL FOR 60.00 DOLLARS.ANY ? HIT ME UP ON TACKLE TOUR FORUM IM PLASTIC MAN

From: Dave: Long Beach, CA

Comments: I bought this reel for cranking at Bass Pro Shops a couple weeks ago. I've only been using it for shallow square bills but so far it has performed well. I spooled mine with P-Line CX 10lb and the only problems I've had have been backlashing which is infrequent but when it happens, it's bad. I will buy this reel again.

From: Nathan: Saginaw, MI

Comments: its a great reel for the money i have not backlashed it. its very smooth and has a great retrieve diawa keeps making tough reliable reels and this one sure fits the criteria. ive bought 4 of them and the are great, especially on the new diawa airid rod.

From: Travis: Moore, OK

Comments: Great reel ive had it for two weeks and i love it but it takes a little getting used to the setting because it is pretty easy to backlash
