Magnetic control is to forward, when palming reel it will change setting taking it back for refund or exchange on a better reel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by USNavyAngler For Price, Can't be Beat
This is a $60 reel that performs as well as my $120 bait casters by Shimano. The casting in this little reel is as great if not better than my $120 Shimano Citica.
Highly recommend it for freshwater use. Not for saltwater.

Was worried at first thinking that it would be a waste of money but this reel is amazing. For the price it cannot be beat. Great as a first baitcaster. I have no problems with backlashes and I'm new to baitcasters. Might not recommend to very high level fisherman, but regardless still a great product. And all for $60!!!

I choose the Daiwa Laguna reel because of its reasonable price, low profile and past experience with Daiwa baitcast reels. I have arthritis in my left thumb and the low reel profile allows me to hold the reel with no discomfort. It has very good free spool action which allows me to cast lighter lures without backlash. The only possible down side is that the magforce magnetic brake requires a 5 or greater setting in my hands to avoid overrun of the spool. I have owned the product for two weeks and have used it 4 times bass fishing and the reel had no problem hauling in a 5lb 7oz large mouth on one of these outings.
