Can do reel
I have four of these reels and I spool them with four pound test. I have caught thousands of bass using these reels. Bail has never failed. Good drag system. Back reel a lot especilly when I hook monsters. This reel has been around for many a year I would recommend buying it without hesitation.

Love the daiwas
Bought the 2600 ss before I picked up a rod for it. Didn't really know it's size cuz I ordered it online. Went and picked up a 7' fenwick medium rod for it and it seemed a little oversized so I immediately ordered the 1600 ss. The 1600 ss fit the rod perfectly. Was gonna send the 2600 back but decided to hang on to it and found a wwgriggs 8'6" mh rod it fit nicely. Between the two the 2600's bail engages smoother than the 1600's. They're my first spinning reels. Alway had the goldcast daiwas. Like the fact that they don't click. Cuz I alway turn that off on the goldcasts. 4 stars cuz of the difference in bail engagement. I'll get used to it I'm sure. Can't wait to pull in a salmon on the 260!

Daiwa SS700 Tournment Reel
I bought 2 of these reels a couple of years ago. I wasn't sure how I'd like them because when I cranked the reels while in the store they didn't seem as smooth as I expected. I wanted these reels for saltwater fishing while out in a kayak and after using them I soon found that I just love them. I bought the lite weight SS 700 and put 15 lb test Power Pro line and have fished and fished them with never a problem. I wash them down and apply some oil after each use and both reels still look and work like new. These reels are a old design but work like a charm. These are the first Daiwa reels I have ever owned and they have won me over mainly due to how well the hold up. They are worth the extra money.

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
