Would have given it six stars
I have owned this reel for one year now and have put it through its paces. Including big sharks and even a 30 pound king mackerel. The reel has handled with smooth drag and powerful cranking, time after time. One of the best features of this reel is the big drag knob on top makes it very easy to adjust during a fight. If you are looking for a reel to start saltwater fishing these reels are a great start. I will be buying a few more in the near future.
ProsThe price is great, larger drag knob for easy adjustment, durability.
ConsNot a reel for fishing lures just bait

Best bang for the buck
I cast plugs/jig from boat. inshore stripers, blues, flounder...I own four of these and one is still going 30 years later. I have a ton of reels, these are my favorite spinning reels. Great reels, don't let the low cost fool you.
ProsSmooth drag, tough in saltwater environment, very durable , reliable. Tremendous value

This thing works well
Put this reel on a Pole and casted out some plugs, and caught some Stripers. They were small (25 - 27") but it was fun catch and release. I bought this to handle medium sized fish - i.e 5 - 30 lbs and It feels like its going to work out pretty well. Nice feel, good mechanics and pretty good quality for the cost. I am replacing some of the penn 4000, 5000, 6000's that I bought last year because I am not happy with them, and I think I have found my replacement reel. I will probably get one of these in the spring as well.
ProsThis came on time and all parts were in the box I fish in saltwater, and this is a saltwater reel.
ConsI have nothing bad to say

Malfunctioned after landing first fish
Bought this reel after researching online. Read nothing but positives relative to this being a workhorse basically bulletproof reel. While landing my first fish it malfunctioned with what seems like the gearing and possibly anti reverse acting up. Immediately sent it to Daiwa for warranty work/replacement. Given all the positives I read while researching I am assuming mine was simply a fluke. Otherwise I like the reel very much thus 3 stars instead of one or two.

old school reel but very RELIABLE
this is my 3rd bg 90 already! the 1st one, I bought it several years ago and still working like new! very reliable, easy to maintain, rinse off with fresh h2o after each use and grease it 1x/yr and you're good! still waiting for the drag to give up and probably replace it with carbon but it's been yrs and they're still good. bearings are very accessible for packing them with grease. I especially love the foldable handle. it makes it easier to transport. love the wooden grip as well. it makes it look classic. I've caught cudas, wsb, lings etc with it with no hiccups. the one reel to have and if you could only keep one!

Heavy duty reel
I have the BG 60 and its a brute. Used it in Florida for pier and bridge fishing for 7 years. Never let me down. Just wash it after each use and keep it lubed and it will last many years. Great drag and strong gears. 65 lb bull shark was biggest I caught and many smaller. Never any problems with it.
ProsAll metal construction. Powerful retrieve. Built to handle huge fish.
ConsNone

Quality not there
I bought one of these years ago and it was a good reel. It was stolen 3 years ago so I bought a new one. The anti-reverse mechanism has broken twice with minimal use.
ProsSolid. Feels strong
ConsCheap Chinese parts

rod that best fits bg90 for sea fishing
The Shakespeare Ugly Stick Bigwater rod, heavy action, (SHA-0027) would work out very well with that reel.
