not for saltwater use
May 10, 2014
While the service I received from Tackledirect was excellent, this reel was a real dissapointment. The first one i recieved had spool re-engagement issues right out of the box- which I then sent back and was very promptly given a new one, through an express courrier. Big kudos to Tackle Directt. However, even though the reel showed no signs of spool issues on the first dry run on the field, after a few saltwater outings a grinding sound from the spool and non-re-engagement issues returned. I contacted tackle direct, but unfortunately as I had used the reel it was now an issue with Daiwa. I contacted Daiwa, and was then informed I would have to send the reel to their head office in the States, as my local Daiwa dealer (new zealand) would not cover the repair or replacement as it was bought on an international web site. The dilemma now is spending the international courrier costs AGAIN (half the reel's cost) or trying to fix it myself. With over 20 years experience with Abus, i decided to try and repair it myself, and here is where it gets interesting. First off the sideplate screw had seized (and the reel was fastidiously wiped down after use by the way) which I had to drill out to release the sideplate. Then I was then greeted with a reel filled with saltwater corrosion and not a lick of grease in sight! Surely a reel comes from the factory greased and oiled? I took the whole reel down and painstakingly cleaned and greased every part. I noted how some of the parts (notably the reel disengagement levers) were made of a very brittle and rough metallic plastic that was rough and pitted which was catching on the inside of the frame- hence the reel not re-engaging. Surely faceplates that rub against each other should be smooth?? and greased???I smoothed it off as best as I could by using a light metal polishing agent and reassembled. A few months on (and using once a week) I now have to service this reel completely every fourth outing or so just to keep it going. Yes it is a lower cost offering from Daiwa, but it should NEVER have been positioned by Tackle Direct and Daiwa as saltwater capable! Really dissapointed :-(
good ergonomics and quick retrieve
not saltwater capable. Poor quality materials
