I expected better from a Daiwa reel
I bought this reel for my son. He is just learning to fish(cast) without my help. I wanted an underspin because I had already been teaching him to cast with a spinning reel but wanted to get him something a little easier to handle. I looked at several underspin reels but chose this one for the all metal construction which includes the trigger. The reel looks good on the outside but the first time it was used the line came off and wrapped around the shaft(I had re-spooled with different line) . Then it began to hang on to the line even when it was released. It would not cast properly. When I got it home and I took the reel apart to see what went wrong I found a stretched line pin spring and the pin would not fully retract. I had to stretch and re-attach both springs and grind down the line pin(bevel the edge) so it would release the line better. After this it does cast better but the drag is very touchy and not at all smooth. This is not of the normal excellent quality that Daiwa reels normally have. I'm quite disappointed with this reel. I realize this reel is cheap and you usually get what you pay for. I should have sprung a little more for an Abu, Pflueger or Zebco.

Worst Purchase Ever
This reel worked for about a day. Became hard to cast. Line hangs up in side of spool.

This reel is extremely easy to pitch ,for crappie and bluegill fishing! It is also very good for regular casting. I have several regular spinning reels on longer crappie rods that I have been using for years,but am going to start changing over to this reel on most. It has an very smooth drag.

It fishes more like a spinning reel if you prefer your reel on the bottom as opposed to the top of your rod. Also, i prefer this model as it is more balanced and comfortable for me to reel with my left hand and hold my rod with my right hand.
I hold the tension with my fingers to where the line will tighten up.....but when you unscrew the cap, the line becomes so tangled I can't get it out...I have been fishing for over 50 years, and not one of the three works...please give me an idea what the problem is...I have misplaced the parts list.......I ordered 2 the first time and sent one back, but they all do the same thing..
When the line hangs, it usually is a problem with the line. Either there is too much line on the spool, not enough, or it is a poor quality of line (old line, stiff line that is not limp enough, etc.). Change the line and fill the spool with a good brand and filled to the correct amount.
If you think it may just have too much line, take some it off and that may fix the problem.
if you take off the cap to the reel then remove the top peace on the line spool at the top there is some felt that gose all the way around it remove it and it will work fine.that is what I did to mine, it is supposed to guide the line but I thank it hang it up.
It sounds like you are getting backlash inside before you remove the cap. This may be due to using too heavy of line in combination with too light of lure. I hope this is the answer you are looking for! Check your reels weight limits for lines and recommendations for lure weight too. Thanks
