Awesome reel!! I've been using my Tekota for a year now and I've caught some really nice fish with it. The Tekota's drag system is one of a kind, smooth and very trustworthy. If you like catching big fish like I do, the Tekota is a must for your fishing arsenal. Here's a recent video of my Tekota in action with a nice striped bass. Thanks for the great product!

Good Reel — Line Counter is Inaccurate Hi, I just purchased a Tekota 500LC for (primarily) walleye fishing in Lake Erie & in N.W. Ontario, Canada lakes. These are great trolling reels BUT I just filled my Tekota 500LC with 300 yards of 50 pound PowerPro and the line-counter told me I put on over 1400 feet! As this line-counter is a revolution counter, it's very inaccurate when there isn't much line on the reel. . The line-counter will work great to match the troll to what you just did on this reel but I doubt it will match stand-alone line-counters as stand-alone line-counters measure the actual line that goes through them. Still, these are VERY NICE light-trolling reels! Hope this helps! Ron June 26, 2008
Nice well thought out design I bought the TEK500 reel for surfcasting in Galveston. I had misgivings about this reel being primarilly a trolling/boat reel.The Shimano rep assurred me that it worked well as a surfcaster, Took it out with my Ocean Master rod and it cast 4oz weights & shrimp all day without a single blowup! The reel is very smooooth. The handle knob is awesome to work with! Great feel. Beautiful cosmetics( light aqua blue) and it has very little chrome, bells and whistles etc. My only complaint would be that I couldnt cast further than 50/60 yards-I am now looking at a Penn Squall that has mags. If you're skilled at casting with cast control turned waydown-you won't find better reel than the Tekota 500 period.. May 26, 2012
Excellent Reel I've used my model 600 with 25lb. test for over two years for fresh and saltwater fishing and I'm very impressed with this reel. I use it along with my vintage Ambassadeur 7000C3 but I have grown to favor the 600 due to its drag smoothness, castability, and reliability (just like my 7000C3). Even though I haven't been able to put the reel to the test on a fish over 7 lbs., I truly believe that it is fully capable of handling very large fish if I apply the correct techniques. I'm so impressed that I am definitely going to buy another one. I highly recommend Tekota reels to anyone searching for an outstanding level wind fishing product. June 1, 2011

I have the shimano Trevalla jigging rod on mine. It's a great rod with lots of good action plus the backbone to get fish to the boat.

A: 
No. Great for trolling, but is heavy for its size. Shimano curado would be better to learn to cast a baitcaster

A: 
I think the tekotas don't have a thumb bar which would make it the opposite of good for learning to cast. I found the Abu Garcia C3 and C4 very easy to cast. The Shimano calcutta B is as well. Need the thumb bar for easier casting. That said, the tekota is a very nice casting reel and the linecounter models are superb trolling reels. I own a couple.

A: 
I recommend you grab a Penn Jigmaster(cheap and reliable) and learn on that before grabbing this reel. If you can cast a jiggy you can cast anything imo. Perfect your thumbing technique and learn how to get rid of birdnests, cuz no matter how fancy the reel, you WILL get birdnests from time to time. All in all, this daiwa is a great reel and well worth the money.

when putting line on winding in a fish your true level wind like the shimano tekota keeps the line straight and not at an angle. you can get more line on this type of reel. my drag works better.
