The Daiwa Eliminator Spinning Reels are built to provide big fish fighting power at an affordable price. They feature Daiwa's signature HardBodyz anodized aluminum frame and side-plate to provide the rigidity necessary to keep the oversized gears in line. The anodized aluminum frame reduces the possibilities of scratching and corrosion. The digi-cut gears will provide maximum cranking power while remaining smooth over time. The aluminum spool is outfitted with a rubber gasket and is braid ready.

First, I would say that I HIGHLY recommend these reels. I own two of them in a 4000 and 3000 series for inshore fishing. I use them catching spanish mackerel off a pier, to landing 30 plus inch redfish on the surf and flats. I have submerged them in saltwater and used them without a problem! i have also tested them offshore for peanut size mahi and small blackfin tuna, and they worked great! for a very low cost reel, it is very worth the money!
ProsPrice durability Low maintenance Line capacity for braid
ConsNot fully sealed

I ordered the Eliminator in the 4000 size for my wife to use on her rockfish setup and it is the perfect size. We made a somewhat last-minute run to the CA coast, so I decided to re-spool with 15lb braid to do some surf fishing. This reel is perfect on a 9' 6" surf rod. It is very lightweight and casts extremely well. I pre-ordered a spare spool for it, but I may just order a second reel, so my wife can have hers back.
ProsLightweight, smooth drag

The first impression when you open the box it's the Daiwa quality.
I try this reel whit 20 pounds line and work very well.
In the market have many economy reels from other company's whit more ball bearings and extras, but the Daiwa quality is by far superior.
If you want a good reel for spinning at reasonable price this is a good choice.
ProsQuality and price.
ConsNo one.

A great reel at its price point

I love this reel, its a bit heavy but that doesn’t bother me, its smooth as butter and the drag easily handles bull reds in the surf,..the only criticism i have is it is not as waterproofed as the BG, but I am anal about maintenance, so again, not a big deal... this purchase was a trial for me, and I will be buying another one (I try to keep two of each reel)...

I usually use Daiwa BG reels but as curious how this was compared, sure enough... it’s almost identical to the BGs I have. Fishes just as good too!

ProsSo much reel at a very affordable price!
ConsCosmetically is subdued so maybe that's a con?
