Comments: These are freaking awesome on murray cod, golden perch and bass in australia! I highly recommend them as carl jocumsen put me onto them! his ranked number 2 in bass elites world wide.. so why choose anything else has wicked medium- slow retrieve for, vibes, spinnerbaits and fizzers!

From: Crazy Chris: Australia 1/28/15

Comments: Just got my second crazy cranker to go on a Duckett 7' 11" cranking rod and this setup feels great! I been chunking DT-10'S AND 14'S AND 16'S here on Kentucky Lake. I have it spooled with Seaguar Fluro and it is one SWEET reel and in my opinion some of Daiwa's best! The Daiwa Zillion series to me are still some of the best reels out there.I have Gen 2 Revos as well and these reels are every bit as smooth and long lasting.

From: Michael: Ripley, TN 7/19/14

Comments: @ tyler this reel will not out preform a revo winch and is about equal with a chronarch e5 yes a little better than the curado  but look at the price differance i do the demo program just to compare these reels and the winch outpreformed  them both,just to get an idea of the other cranking reels out there i fish dd22's,6XD's,and DT14/20 to get an idea of the power of these reels and the winch was the best just saying what i've experianced and tested

From: Andrew: FL

Comments: at last a cranking reel at the "magical" retrieve of 4.9.1 like my old speed spools were.  finest reel I have yet owned.

From: Kirk: St. Louis, MO

Comments: I own one of these reels paired with a Daiwa crankbait rod. I have had good service from it. It performs well pulling large cranks @ Table Rock! Caught my personal best 4lb 3oz. smallie there and a 6lb 10oz. largemouth.

From: Michael: Ripley, TN

Comments: Really enjoy this reel. I have it on a Zillion Swimbait rod and it is a nice combo. The slow smooth retrieve is great. Good reel for the money

From: Mike: Ontario, Canada

Comments: i love this reel it will outperform curado e5 or abu garcia winch because this reel is so smooth and cast a mile on 1/4oz lure and 3/16 oz lure

From: Tyler: Baltimore, MD

Comments:This reel is great!!! I have all zillion reels and I am very pleased. With this 4.9 ratio you can not even tell there is a crankbait at the end of the line, it is like a winch.
