The Daiwa Millionaire M7HTMAGST, designed specifically for casting maximum distance in the surf, boasts proven, record-class performance in European casting competition. The Millionaire M7HTMAGST is built in Daiwa's Japanese factory to ensure maximum quality control.

To control the high-performance spool, capable of reaching speeds up to 30,000 rpm, Magforce Z (called Magnofuge in Europe) applies smooth magnetic braking as the spool approaches maximum speed to prevent over run, and then backing off as the spool slows. The result is the spool starts and builds speed faster, then keeps spinning longer. And the amount of control is fully adjustable to meet varying conditions and your particular casting style.
Daiwa Millionaire M7HTMAGST Surf Reel Features:
  • Factory Super Tuned for optimum performance
  • Super Tuned machine cut spool–super-balanced, super-lightweight aluminum alloy
  • Carbon Swept Handle for reduced weight, maximum leverage and control
  • EVA double handle knob
  • Fast 5.8 to 1 retrieve picks up 28'' per crank
  • High-grade brass drive gear and stainless steel pinion
  • Nine Ball bearings (8 CRBB) plus roller bearing
  • Rigid, one-piece aluminum frame
  • Smooth star-adjust drag
  • Advanced design, Super Tuned, Magforce-Z (known in Europe as Magnofuge)

Casts a Mile, But Jams on Retreive Every 10th Cast
This real casts a mile, but fails to engage the handle about every 10th cast. You have to loosen the gear box cover screws and jiggle it to make it work. This must be a chronic issue because the screws are designed to be turned by hand with no tool. Does not matter if the reel is dry, greased or oiled, it still jams.
ProsCasts a mile.
ConsJams all the time. Very little spool capacity.

Absolutely terrible company for saltwater reesl!
Had mine for a year and so did a friend (bought at the same time). Within the first month had a grinding in the ball bearings. I don't do any beach fishing at all so i assumed that i got salt inside of it and cleaned it to no avail. A week later my friend's reel started doing the same. Now both of these reels were thoroughly cleaned after each use. Luckily another friend of ours knew a Daiwa rep., and we got all of the internals replace for free. Upon receiving it the worked great.....for about a month again..... I went as far as to replace the "sealed" ball bearings inside with ceramic ones i bought online, which did help, but has not totally absolved the issue with their crappy bearings grinding and locking up.

Like an Italian race car. And about as reliable.
No doubt this reel casts farther than anything I have ever seen! But unfortunately the clutch mechanism has been very unreliable, and I have had to send it back to the factory twice in the first six months I had it. I'm sure it is wonderful for tournament settings, but my experience it that it doesn't stand up to regular use in the surf. If you like to tinker with your gadgets, then get this reel by all means. But if you want a good casting reel that is reliable for use in the surf, go somewhere else.
ProsIt really does cast a mile.
ConsThe clutch mechanism is very unreliable.

I am considering buying this reel to surf cast the Florida beaches. I typically have a lot of problems with bird nests and backlashes with a conventional reel. Do you think I'll have this problem with this reel?
1 Answers
Yes. This is not the reel for you if you have backlash issues. The spool revolves way too fast. Check out the Avet SX MC reels.

Striper fishing is lit up right now in New Jersey, and it’s just the start of the spring run. While there are varied tactics to catch bass via trolling, livelining, snag-n-drop, etc. jigging bass with soft baits is always an adrenaline juiced affair... Read More
