Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 52 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Workhorse I recently purchased two Daiwa SS Tournament 1600 model spinning reels. These reels do not have all the bells and whistles the newer reels on the market have but they are just flat out a workhorse. I have one now that I purchased in 1984 and it works as well today as it did the day I bought it. There is a good reason the design has not changed in all that time, it works! It is long casting with a stout bail and a great drag. You cannot go wrong with this reel. March 18, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Durable, reliable, smooth drag My SS1300 is a decade old. It is fished hard, and it has performed. 3 years ago or so the bail gave me issues after years of hard service with only annual cleaning. Daiwa replaced the bail and updated the drags for the cost of labor at $25. This reel has caught hundreds of fish with issue, including several bass over 5lbs and a couple trout over 9lbs. It has a smooth, consistent drag with accurate adjustments. I've fished it with 6lb the majority of the time I've owned it. Not the prettiest, smoothest reel on the market, but a reel that is dependable. With 10-15lb braid and a leader, its also possible that the 700 size is one of the few reels in the $100 range capable of delivering great drag with a very lightweight design. March 1, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by simple is the best to simply put it, this reel is perfect. it casts far. requires minimum maintenance. it also looks good, and has an amazing drag. i cant see how you could brake it. plus its retro, with non of that stupid plastic chrome covers and so on. just because a reel has 1000 ball bearings doesnt make it worth the big price tag. i had really smooth, flawless feeling reels that i thought would last forever. truth is even with babying them and maintenance, they still locked up. not to mention names, "pflueger". not saying that all expensive reels aren't worth the price tag. if you can deal without the excess features, and just want something you dont have to worry about with the same performance, buy this reel. they wouldnt keep it all these years if it wasnt worth it. September 28, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super long casting! The Diawa SS Tournament reel is very functional and reliable. The build of the spool with the Long Cast Technology is simply brilliant. It tapers down from the back to the front of the spool (larger to smaller) allowing the line on the back to come off as easily as the line on the front of the spool while casting. What do you get for that technology? Much longer casts with less effort. Actually, almost no effort is required to blow a huge cast off this reel. Ok, I admit it's not the smoothest reel out there but Diawas are one of the longest lasting reels I have ever owned. (I still fish with a 25+ year old Diawa Ultralite and never even a hint of a problem on my weekly fishing excursions. When I bought it originally I fished daily over a 10 year period so it had plenty of use.) The truth is, you really don’t feel how smooth this reel is or isn’t when you are reeling in a lure and you sure as beans don’t feel it when you hook into a hog because you were able to throw a monster cast to where that leviathan was hiding before he even knew someone was fishing! The drag is super sensitive and incredibly variable so when you do hook into the big one you don’t have to worry about losing him to a sloppy, unpredictable drag system. Overall you would be hard pressed to find a better, more dependable reel at any price. If you want a reel that you can spin the handle around and say, “Wow that’s really smooth” then this isn’t the reel for you. Of course, I bet you won’t be able to cast that reel as far as the Diawa SS Tournament and who knows how long that expensive super smooth reel will last? Let’s see, suppose I cast my old Diawa UL only 700 times a week for 25 years… well that’s about 910,000 casts. Of course I cast that reel a lot more so let’s say conservatively one million casts without a repair and only an occasional lube. Like I said, you would be hard pressed to find a better, more dependable reel at any price. September 24, 2010

A: 
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

A: 
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.

A: 
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.

A: 
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

An ugly stick works very good with this reel. You get the added bonuses of them being tough and cheap. I use the bigger SSs'(?) and have used primarily med-heavy 6'6"-7' rods.
