Rated 5 out of 5 by PanhandleSharking HUGE reel - 902 yards of 20# mono!!
Daiwa SEVERELY underrates the DF-100A's line capacity: this thing is a MONSTER - it makes a Penn Spinfisher V 9500 look small in comparison!
Although Daiwa's online stats (including those on the box and the reel itself) state that it can handle 460 yards of 20# mono, I just had this reel completely spooled at the store with 902 (?!) yards of 20# mono.
In other words, you can basically double the reel's stated mono line capacities.
Suffix says their 80# 832 Braid is equivalent in diameter/thickness to 20# mono, which means you can fit roughly 900 yards of Suffix 80# braid on this beast.
It has more line capacity and 50% more drag than my Penn 4/0 Senator. Amazing!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by rsan29 great for the price
I have purchased 3 of these. The price is great and I am able to put 400 yards of 50ib braid on them. They last about two years and hold up well to water and sand.

Crazy price, bought it until my replacement came and might be better than my $200 Reel

Just bought this reel yesterday and matched it with a 12 ft. surf rod. This combo only cost about 80 bucks and all fisherman know that that's hard to find these days. Going fishing in Hateras first week of June. This reel will be tested there!
