Good reel for distance surfcasting
December 25, 2013
This Daiwa reel seems to be a good reel for saltwater surfcasting, giving you more distance for bottom rigs. It comes with two aluminum spools - one shallower for braided line, one deeper for mono. The drags is smooth and strong, the handle very comfortable. However, the only thing I dislike is the plastic ring just behind the spool. It looks like is is purely a cosmetic part, but it is very flimsy.
Pros:Strong drag, good power handle, great casting distance, good weight/not too heavy, good line lay.
