Rated 5 out of 5 No Reason Pass This Up
Bought this reel after many many months of seeing and researching it. I couldn't be more pleased with a reel than this one. Took it to Holden beach NC to do some pier and surf fishing and this blew my expectations out of the water, literally. Within about 2 hours of fishing I hooked a 38" 40 lb red drum. The drag system was flawless and gave me perfect control of the fish. Fought him for about 15 minutes using 30lb test berkley big game line with an 11' Diawa beef stick pole and powerhoused him to the pier even after he ran an additional 150 yards from the hook point. Bottom line is.... This reel is more than worth $150, much less the $40-$50 you pay for it. Don't wait, BY THIS REEL BEFORE THEY SELL OUT.

This reel is HUGE! ( 700yds of 50lb Braid ) But Besides that all I can say is Perfect. Daiwa knocked it out of the ball park in this price range AGAIN!

Bought my first one about 6 months ago. Spooled with 30lb power pro and matched with a 10ft beef stick, it is unstoppable. It has pulled in over 20, 30+lbs Bull Reds and just as many 36" and over Sharks in the Gulf.
I am now adding more to my tackle box awaiting the Bull run in the next month or so.
You can not beat this reel for the price and quality.

I bought this reel about a year ago because I was looking for a decent cheap reel to use in the surf that could handle big fish and sharks. I knew it was big from reading the reviews but holy cow I had no idea until it arrived in the mail. Since that point, I have named it "The Beast". I matched it with a 11ft Daiwa Beef Stick. I spooled it with 20lb mono and the combo casts a mile. Tonight I bought 500yds of 50lb power pro to throw on there. I'm looking foward to trying it with braid this weekend. Unfortunately I have not been lucky enough to catch anything worthy of truly testing what it's capable of but I do love this reel. The only thing I don't like about it is the weight. It's definitely not a reel you want if you plan on holding it for a while with a heavy surf rod.
