One of the best spinning reels ever
There are a number of spinning reels out there. But this series is one of the best all around ever produced. I use the SS1300 size for both saltwater and freshwater use. My reels have fished from coast to coast, in Canada and in Mexico. They have never let me down and landed fish to 30lbs using line from braid to mono. I've convinced a number of friends to try these fine little reels and all have purchased them after fishing with mine.

Daiwa SS reels
Tough and reliable.It can take a saltwater licking and keep on ticking.Literally this reel can take a good dunking and keep on fishing.I own a 1300ss,1600ss and a2600ss all of which survived being under water from hurricane Wilma.The reels could not be recovered from the flood for several days.A thorough rinsing in fresh water and inspection with a small amount of reel oil was all it took to put them back into service.

This is simply my most reliable reel. It has the BEST line lay system (much better than the locomotive). It doesn't have instant anti-reverse, but it doesn't bother me. I will deduct a point because it doesn't come with a spare spool.

A fantastic reel
I purchased my first Diawa reel about 19 years ago. It is a 700SS Tournament Series. I use this ultralite reel with 4lb test line and have had great results. Over the past 19 years I have owned many reels and none have matched this one. It is extremely low maintenance. The drag is easy to reach and adjust. I love the ratio, it seems perfect for fast or slow retrieves. I am in the market to purchase a medium-heavy reel and I am definately going to buy the SS Tournament Series.

I have 3 0f the SS 1600's. While mine are on custom built rods I do use gloomis as my primary baitcast reel rods. I really love both the SS series reels and gloomis rods. If I should ever replace a spinning rod it will be with a gloomis rod. I don't see how u could go wrong with a SS reel on a gloomis rod
I have several Daiwa SS Torunament reels in different sizes. I mainly saltwater kayak fish with them using a 700 with 15# Power Pro line and this littel reel has done more than its job. Its not a high tech reel but they are very dependable and will hold up with a little care forever. I would highly recommend this reel for any fishing you would like to do as they are rock solid and will get the job done. When I bought my first one I tried it in the store and didn't think it was as smooth as a $100 reel should be, but after using these reels year after year I will say they are the Bee's Knee's and well worth the money in the long run.
These reeels have never come with a spare spool. I have two of them. if I recall correctly the extra spool can be purchased but it runs over $20.00. In my opinion it is well worth the extra cost if this is going to be one of your primary reels.
I put mine on a Shakespear Liberty 98% Graphite UL and it's great. Of course it depends on what size reel you have and the kind of fishing you are doing.
That upward angle is one of the reasons you can cast it so far, it keeps it alligned better with your first eyelet and reduces friction that way. I would be comfortable putting this reel on any rod I own.
I use my 2600 boyh on my Shakespeare Ugly Stik 6´6" and 7´. Both Medium action. The shape of the SS Spool, combined with the whip action on the Ugly, allows you to cast every line as it was half the weight. The Spool seems to push the line away. I will also recomend the Uglys with the Tournament
