Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great reel I haven't had any trouble with this reel using it for punching or flipping with a 7"4 Dobyns te and the zillion 7 to 1 using a 1 3/4 ounce weight,with 65# power pro line. Great set-up for getting the Bass out of the heavy cover with the 7 to 1 reel,where i can really get it up and out in a hurry. March 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Almost as good as the Steez Great reel for flipping for bass. Teamed up this reel with a St-Croix legend extreme 7ft medium heavy rod. LXC70MHF. Good strong, sensitive, outfit. 5 Stars April 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Gift 4 a veteran angler as the owner of 2 steezs baitcasters 2 Zillion &Shimano curado &callcuta TE/ DC "NONE" are better suited for flippin &pitching than this type"R" reel !! Handle's great with the old ceilo Diawa 7ft 6" in rod...good balance drag perfect with first 4 lbs Bass of 3/17/2012 Team Diawa got it Right !! Tight Lines March 28, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Mid level reel I purchased this reel for it's 7.3:1 gear ratio. I also own a number of other Daiwa reels, including Steez and a few JDM reels. This reel, minus the carbon fiber handle, is pretty much identical to the Daiwa 50th anniversary edition Zillion from a few years ago. I own one a TD zillion 50th anniversary and when taken apart this reel is identical. It is very smooth, although maybe not quite as smooth as a Steez, and with a slightly heavier feel. It is better suited for jigs/weights over 3/16 oz, where as a Steez 103HA or 103SHA with the v shaped spool can handle lighter jigs. The brake is pretty good. As usual with the higher end Team Daiwa reels, the fit and finish is perfect. I would highly recommend this reel to someone looking for a higher ratio reel in the $400 range. I've owned a wide array of Shimano and Daiwa reels. In my opinion this reel surpasses any compact bait caster Shimano offers in terms of ease of use and features. My only complaint, if I can even call it that, is that it is close enough in price to the Steez that it is worth the extra $100 to just get the steez. March 14, 2012
