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
Cant wait to test it out.... I just purchased the Tek 700 and I cant wait to try it out on some Rock Fish in the Chesapeake and down in Myrtle for some shark. After alot of research, I decided on this model...I had the Bass Pro guy (Art) load it up with 500 yds of 100# Spider Wire Stealth Braid. Giving it 3 stars...for now...although I am certain that will change after the first time out. February 29, 2012
Very Nice Used my 500 for the first time and it worked flawlessly. Caught a 12lb. shovel nose shark with 10lb. test on a 6'6'' shimano trevala rod and had no problems. Can't wait to use it on yellows. February 23, 2012
Recommended by Reel Repair There is a guy in town that repairs reels. He has told me reels not to buy. The Tekota he said is one of the better made reels. Excellent drag system for salmon and Steelhead fishing. I prefer line counter reels for trolling and anchor fishing. In September 2011 the reel repair guy said he couldn't get parts for Shimano reels due to the Tsunami in Japan. He had some unhappy customers who wanted their Shimano reels back but had been waiting over a month for his supplier to get parts. Haven't heard anything since. November 15, 2011

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.
