Customer Reviews

Comments: I just got this reel a week ago and already dislike it. Took it to the lake once and threw a square bill on it. I couldn't cast half as far as usual. It felt super light but also cheap and it's a bulky reel.

From: Andrew - Dallas, TX 2/19/17

Comments: Great reel! Don't listen to ppl saying there is better at the $199.99 price point.  There r good reels but not better considering the components they use in this reell.

From: Mark: Toronto 2/15/17

Comments: The reel feels ok, but at the price point I think there are much better options..

From: Stu 1/10/17

Comments: For the sale price of $199, this reel is already amazing, I can cast 3/16 confidently and far with 12lb fluoro, and 1/8 a fair distance if in a pinch.  It is an EXTREMELY light reel and with aluminum gears probably not best for heavy duty, but for bass applications is perfect.  I would highly consider ordering 4 bearings (4x7x2.5mm) for the handle because the stock 4 bushings are rough, the positive from that is all 8 bearings listed are inside the reel.

From: Weston: AR 12/24/16

Comments: Wow what a cheap price for such an incredible performing reel. Very high quality and impossible to beat at this price. I like Shimano & Daiwa & this reel performs to both high end standards. Buy one & love it, it's nice light and powerful .

From: Mike: USA 9/20/16

Comments: Added a few extra bearings to the handle. Bought it specifically for finesse. Performs amazingly! Definitely getting more.

From: Yoshi: Japan 9/10/16

Comments: This reel is sick. I gotta admit. Does best with mono. You can straight launch a zell pop with this thing. Gotta replace the 4 knob bushings imo which is no big deal.

From: Gabe: Colins, MS 4/6/16

Comments: A dream reel to cast with, you cannot backlash with this reel. Smoothest reel on the market. I have casted 1/8th once lures & not backlashed once. Pair it with a zillion you can cast all day long.

From: Warren: USA 3/14/16

Comments: This is a great reel. The SV spool is great, when you set this reel is properly for the bait you are using, it's nearly impossible to backlash. I like the simplicity of Daiwa's braking system & with a couple seconds, I had this reel dialed in. Use braid backing and this sucker will be humming.

From: Nick: USA 2/3/2016

Comments: I have a couple of these that I bought from Japan. They are excellent reels, basically a Steez SV, minus a few bearings. I like mine for burning traps & also for senkos. The drag isn't very powerful on top end, but it is VERY smooth.
