Rated 5 out of 5 by lbara Great Reel!
I own 12 BG series Daiwa reels in different sizes. It's the only reel I fish with in Southeast Louisiana. I can work on them if necessary to do repairs. Many of my reels are 10 years old and still work great. Most went underwater in my house during Hurricane Katrina. After a month I was able to retrieve, clean and lubricate them. I used several of them this weekend in Hopedale, La and we caught plenty of Speckled Trout! They still work great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by fishermanOK built like a tank!
bought a daiwa BG90 to fish fresh water for any and everything! spooled it with 15# triline extra tuff and have used it to catch a few small channel cats and a fresh water drum of course no problem at all lol
what i like about it is the all metal construction except the plastic anti reverse switch and the drag knob, it has a super smooth drag and very smooth cranking for a 3 bearing reel also very positive bail lock so no surprise snap offs ! when turning the crank you can hear and feel a slight grrrrrrr of the gears turning which i like.
things that you wont get is even line lay and instant anti reverse which don't matter to me but what i do care about is reliability and i honestly couldn't imagine braking it ever! i think a bg13 is all you would ever need in fresh water but i only use one reel for everything so i chose the 90 and i don't think i will ever need another one but i like it so much i will get the bg13 and maybe a bg10 for ice fishing hope this helps somebody! i will say buy it before they quit making them there to good to keep building lol

I have two of the BG reels. I have a 30yr old BG13 which was my Grandfathers reel. My largest fish was a 6Ib Brown trout. The reel handled it with ease. I have no complaints at all with the BG13.
I purchased the BG15 for walleye and Pike. I haven't had any issues with it. Two things I don't like about it are, The Drag adjustment is made of semi cheap plastic. It's works fine, it just feels a little cheap. The second has been mentioned before ,the auto reverse. If you are working a heavy bait, the handle kind of clicks back as the auto reverse engages. Slightly annoying, but doesn't affect the actual performance of the reel. I'm very pleased with it over all.

I bought this reel because much of my fishing is done drifting rivers in a canoe. It is hard on gear, quite often things like avoiding sweepers become a bigger priority than being carefull with your equipment. Befor I bought this reel I was breaking one or two rods a season and wearing out reels in two years or less. I bought a BG 15 and put it on a 7' Uglystick, 6 years and hundreds of fish later this rig is still working just like it did the day I bought it. Its hauled in a few walleye in the 30" range and a couple pike over 40". Cant beat these things for durability.
