These come with cosmetic residue all over the reel from the factory
I opened to box to find residue all over the rotor and body. There was also oil leaking from the seals. I spoke to John from Tackle Direct and he said they all come with the residue and couldn't ship me one that didn't have it. He offered a refund. According to the Daiwa rep: "This is normal, yes. The BG uses a different grease than some of our other reels as we try to make sure it can stand up to the harsh saltwater environment. There were very few instances (yours being one of them) that the grease was subject to prolonged high heat (usually in the shipping process) and leaked out a small amount. The marks are actually imprints from the plastic bag the reel comes in sticking to the grease, similar to a carbon copy. This has zero negative effect n the reel and is very easy to wipe off, but we still understood that it ‚€œlooks‚€ bad. After the first production batch we started shipping the BG in a white cloth bag and then inside the plastic bag you see yours in to absorb in the rare case any grease leaked out during shipment. I can see that yours is from the first batch by the absence of the white bag. Again, there is no issue whatsoever with the function of the reel, it just needs to be wiped off." So... these NEW "Tackle Direct Exclusive Color" reels come out of the box looking like shit. Also consider that if oil leaks OUT... what's going to stop salt water from getting in? Or that they won't continue to leak on your hot ass car or boat?

Merchant Response:Simple wipe will fix it.
Pros33lbs of drag for $89!
ConsYou can't give these as a gift because of the appearance. Bad seals apparently.

good reel but........!
aAfter 36 years of fishing I can say it is a good reel but the maximum draw is only 33 lbs is not enough if you look at it, s strong and good design have to think that they have to go for 40 or 45 lbs.
