Rated 5 out of 5 by Solid Value I never had a Daiwa reel in all my years of fishing. 54 years worth!! The Daiwa® Aird Spinning Reel is well constructed, well balanced and loaded with features for the price. Very pleased. Not so pleased w the $12 shipping charged by Bass Pro Shops! Just keep'n it real! March 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by love the Aird Cannot be beat for the price. Are there better reels? yes, but not for the price. Have several of these now and they perform flawlessly. My very favorite setup is an Aird 2500 on a St Croix AVID MLF Like this product so much, bought one for my brother November 26, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Real I bought this real cause i used my friends and it was one of the smoothest reels I've ever used. It has great drag settings allow me to utilize my rod to the best functions. It can go from panfish and perch with small light hits to 20 plus pound carp to 10 pound explosive hits from stealhead and walleye. Its also a great product because it comes with 2 spools allowing you to change quickly and efficiently between line types/weight. March 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Reel Great reel. very smooth. Took it out the other day and caught some nice bass with ease. It casts very far and it looks great. February 1, 2013

A: 
Believe you would be happy with either, it would depend on the rod you pair it with. If you are consistently catching bass over 5lbs I would probably go with the 4000. But if most of you fish are below that, the 2500 will catch them all. My favorite setup is a 2500 with a St Croix Avid MLF and it has caught plenty of fish in the 5 to 10 lb range.

A: 
The 2500 would be the better choice. The 4000 is a bit big for bass fishing unless you are using huge baits. In that case you would be better off using a baitcaster.

A 2500 series reel, with a smooth drag, can land any bass you are fishing for.

A: 
I use the 2500. In general, I feel the 4000 reels are too big for me to handle comfortably.

Spool a few yards of mono first, then use a blood or uni-knot to splice the mono and braid together.

A: 
I tried that and what happens is, eventually the adhesive on the tape melts when the tape gets old and it makes a sticky mess, WD 40 will clean it off. I just use mono for backing now.

A: 
I believe they include a special spool for braid, if not, you can simply tie on a 5ft monofilament leader.

When I tie braid to the spool I add a small piece of tape to prevent the line from slipping.

A: 
Yes it can be used with braid and the extra spool looks the same just deeper to hold more line thats why its a 2500 and a 3000 in the same reel!

A: 
Can't anything about the braided line I don't use it myself it doesn't say anything about it in the packaging or on the Daiwa website. My Aird came with an aluminum spool. They come with different sizes depending on which reel you get a 4000 comes with a 3500 spool. Website has info. Love it! It's a great reel. I'm actually looking to getting another smaller one at some point.
