Excelent reel
If you are looking for a multiple tasking reel, both solid, light and with a big line capacity, then go for the 4000!! I fish saltwater and freshwater, and this reel is perfect for any type of fish not over 8-10kg. No matter if you're looking for big bass, pike, musky, catfish, stripped bass, snaper, grouper, small jacks or small GTs, this reel is going to handle smoothly if you use it properly

Smooth and durable
I've been using the 4500 size bg commercial fishing for Spanish mackerel here in FL. So far this season this reel has brought in 1000's of lbs of mackerel and has seen more abuse than the average fisherman would put a reel through in a lifetime. It is still buttery smooth to crank and the drag has not changed in smoothness since it came out of the box. Highly recommended. There is no better reel in this price point period!

What a deal
Picked up a 5000 for Yellowtail fishing Catalina Island in spring and summer. Had a chance to get out at the very tail end of the 2016 season. It was lights out hit limits (average 10lbs) and caught and released until we exhausted ourselfs. This reels was such a pleasure to use. It was not even a challenge for the reel in any capacity. I'm sure you could bring in some seriously huge fish with these reels. I can't even imagine how powerful the 8000 series must me. All in all this is way more reel than the price is suggesting. This easily feels like a $200-$300 class reel, just impeccable quality. I'm going to pick up a 2500 soon for my bass rod. A+ for Daiwa.

I have not had a chance to use the reel yet but my initial impressions are this reel feels like the best in its class! The spool is deep and holds a ton of capacity. I like the all metal design except for the lightweight carbon rotor. Daiwa packed a lot into this package and I can't wait to use it!

Great Reel!
I bought this reel recently and it is crazy smooth. Not to include the reel has a lot of power when reeling in fish. The smoothness and the power combined together make a great reel that makes it super easy to reel in big fish. The reel is also light so that is another pro.

Best Bang for the Buck
The Daiwa BG2500 is possibly one of the best top-end reels available for the price. I have Quantum-PT Cabos, which are excellent, but the Daiwa BGs (Black Gold) have a couple of interesting features that shine in quality spinning reels designed for salt water. In addition to the BG2500, I also have a BG4500 and recently put both to the task. I did use 15 lb braid on the 2500, (30 lb braid on the 4500) which is my first use of braid on spinning tackle. On my recent trip to the surf down past the 4WD sign on Padre (Texas), I hooked into a jack of respectable size in the heavy surf which put the BG2500 through a decent drag test. I was impressed with the smoothness of the drag through both the high-speed line rips as well as the slower tugs. There wasn’t the slightest hint of line jerking or jumping so common with other reels. The fish tired as quickly as I did but the little BG2500 really showed its stuff. I also hooked up a tug boat (either a big red or black drum) on the BG4500 that had me wondering if I had any stamina left to hold that joker, but it decided to head for other waters after five minutes and spit the lure without so much as a wink. After these first two tests, I must say I am absolutely impressed with the Daiwa BG2500 (and the BG4500). You can spend a lot more on spinning reels, but dollar for dollar I believe the Daiwa is the best buy.
ProsThe spool brake and braided line ready spool, the smooth drag, ease of disassembly, clening and lubing....just about everything.....
ConsA tad less easy to disconnect the auto bail on the 2500 than the larger reels, but not a big deal.

Excellent reel - especially at this price
I purchased the 4000 size BG and took out on trip for false albacore. I figured this would be a good test. I caught 4 allies on this reel and I was so happy with the way the drag performed. Very smooth. Next trip I took the reel out for some back bay stripers. The reel handled amazing on bass up to 15 lbs. Hoping to get some bigger ones on it in the future!
ProsInexpensive, built very well, Nice smooth drag, light weight
Consnone so far at this price.

Great reel for any situation and doesn't break the bank!!!!
I recieved my BG 8000 and man am I impressed. This is my first Daiwa reel (usually a Shimano&Penn guy) but once i saw this come out at ICAST 2016 I had to order one. It has all the quality features of a Penn Battle II and then some. More bearings/bigger spool/air rotor/Digigear/Higher drag power at about the same exact price and Daiwa has been known as a quality fishing company for decades worldwide...WHAT'S NOT TO LOVE?! The line capacity on this thing is insane and the braid ready spool makes it even crazier. Spool this with some Kastking braid and you'll be able to reel in just about any fish there is out there. With 33 lbs. Of drag, there is plenty of stopping power to wear down any fish. Definitely won't be nervous when i hook up a blacktip or tiger while surf fishing. As for any reel, just be sure to provide good maintenance and it should last a lifetime just like the old school BG. The 7 bearings make this thing super smooth and the black and gold make a very attractive reel. The digigear ensures the teeth of the gear will line up better and the anodized body helps prevent corrosion. The air rotor cuts down some weight on this heavy duty reel while also making it look very unique. This thing has a ton of torque and will be the number 1 reel on the market since it is such a great deal. Keep an eye out for this product, it's gonna blow up! #TeamDaiwa #DaiwaProud

January 18, 2018
Thank you for you time. I just purchased a St. Croix Premier Spinning rod. It is 7" Medium Fast. I will be using it from a kayak for anything from small mouth to rock fish. Water is anything from Salt - Fresh. I have always used Penn Battle II's and have never had a problem. But a friend suggested I look at the BG. How does the BG compare? And what size reel should I look at. I can't decided for either brand between a 3000 and 4000. I will be using 20lb power pro.
1 Answers
The Daiwa BG is arguably the best reel on the market at the $100 price point. I personally find it to be far superior to the Battle II. Based on the line capacity for 20# braid I'd suggest the 3000 size. That size will also balance out the best with the rod that you have.
