From the surf to the flats, Daiwa brings the fight to inshore game fish!

Daiwa's Emcast Sport Spinning Reel is a smooth, balanced fishing machine with cannon-like castability. The Emcast Sport comes raring to go with a super-smooth 8-bearing system (7 ball bearings and 1 roller bearing) and a large-diameter ABS™ aluminum spool that drastically reduces casting friction and makes for silky, consistent drag function. Each reel also sports Gyro Spin® balancing, along with a Twist Buster® line roller that reduces line twist. The Infinite Anti-Reverse virtually eliminates back play and ensures solid hooksets. Each reel also features a one-touch folding handle and comes with a FREE spare aluminum spool.

Line recovery is in inches per handle turn.

Terrible product-total junk Bought this reel and on the 2nd weekend of use it began locking up and quickly became useless. I'd expect more out of this reel than two weekends of use. Bass Pro also says I'm responsible for return shipping. July 15, 2013
Started good, ended bad. This reel felt good, looked good, and I thought it would do that job. However after one season of surf fishing the gears began to slow up. I take care of my stuff so it wasn't due to lack of TLC. After 1 season the handle stem literally broke in half. I can't possible explain how metal breaks in half like that but it did. May 15, 2012
Not a good material Some part behind spool are cheap plastic. The other free spool stuck while winding, Some times the handle folds while winding. I wasn't expecting such product from Diawa. February 27, 2012
Lasted only a few weeks After no more than 25 days of use, this EMCAST 5500 failed mechanically. It sounds as if there were stripped gears and the spool will not raise and fall as it is reeled. I purchased a couple of these reels from Bass Pro Shops and this is first product from Bass that I have ever had fail so miserably so quickly. February 25, 2012

Please answer ASAP. My friend who lives in Florida asked me to buy her a new fishing rod & reel combo. I'm planning on getting her a 7' Shakespeare® Ugly Stik® Big Water Spinning Rod. Will this reel pair up nicely with it? I received this reel today, and it seems a bit big, however I'm very new to fishing. Please help! I can return it, but it needs to be fast seeing as this is a Christmas gift. Thanks for the help!

It would be ok with an ugly stick. I've used this reel on the offshore angler surf rod. Honestly tho, I think the reel is not that great. Mine broke and is not very smooth after a few years of use. (and I take care of my stuff)

Depends more on your line weight. With the right line and leader you could cast a 10 ounce weight.

A: 
This Emcast Sport reel will pair up fine with an ugly stick big water rod but 7-feet is way too short if you plan on fishing from the shore or pier. Buy at least a 10-12 foot ugly stick for longer casting distance. A 7-root rod is a boat length as you won't be able to cast very far with such a short rod.

A: 
depends on the capability of your rod. the rod tells you the line capacity limit for ex: 20-40 lb test so make sure your reel is some where between that limit

A: 
The 5500 and 6000 reels are identical in every way except for the inside diameter of the spools with the 6000 having a smaller pit diameter to allow more line to be stored on it. The outside diameters of the spools are also identical both in width and length so it is possible to simply replace the spool of the 5500 with the 6000 and vice versa.

The same is true of the smaller 4500 and 5000 size as their spools are also interchangeable with each other. I bought one of each size and keep 20 lb. test mono on the 2 x 5000 spools and 10 lb. test on the 2 x 4500 spools to quickly change line for different fishing scenarios. (Each reel comes with a spare spool).

the 5500 can be used with 20-30 lb test and the 6000 is to be used with 20-40 lb test plus the 6000 is a bigger reel 27 oz and it spools more line per handle turn

A: 
you could defenitely use this combo, im assuming your talking about the mh rod. considering the line ratings i would spool the reel with 17 lb test if your planning on using the setup for just larger fish, but i might go down to 12 or 15 for largemouth and defenitely 12 for walleye. personally, i would rather have a longer rod if your planning on using the setup in the surf though, like an 8 ft minimum,

A: 
I believe that using braid on any long-casting spinning reel / rod is a mistake as spinning reel retrieval causes twists in the line and when the limp braid is cast out wind knots easily form. Stick with mono on these type of spinning reels and use braid on bait-casting reels. If you just use light tackle and don't cast very far you might get away with braid on a spinning reel but not on a medium heavy action such as this that might be sending the line out 100 yards or more.

A: 
Unless you're fishing for a whale shark don't use 50 lb. line with this reel - save that for deep sea fishing from a boat with a heavy bait-casting reel. Use 10-15 lb. mono with this reel for best results and that will haul in most fish up to 30-50 lbs if you use a 10-12 foot long rod. Long rods absorb shock better and mono stretches so don't use overkill with heavy test line as that will kill your casting distance. Also don't use braid with this spinning reel as you will get wind knots - stick with mono.

you could but it probably isnt your best bet, even with the 6000 size you would only be able to hold about 152 yards of line.
