Never had anything but problems with any Daiwa reel i've touched.
My Father, his friend, my friend, a coworker, and myself have had nothing but bearing problems with these reels in saltwater. These reels were well taken care of, oiled, lubed, cleaned after every use and still managed to irk us to where we all got rid of them.We were lucky enough to know a Daiwa rep through a friend and had the bearings replaced and they all started doing the same thing2 weeks later after our first trip with the new bearings. We even went as far as to get ceramic bearing for them and still had a constant grinding in the reel.

A Smooth well built reel
My favorite reel when salt water fishing for Sea Bass, Flounder, Tog and any other fish under 20 pounds. I know a reel repairman/servicer personally and he was highly impressed by how durable and
smooth this reel is. The level wind feature is another plus. No more concern about the hills and valleys in your spool. You can't go wrong with this reel.

Tough, smooth, high speed reel.
I own four of these reels and use them for many species, from perch to drum fish. They are my favorite. I found something wrong with just about every reel I've ever owned and I've owned many in my 74 years. However, these Daiwa Saltists are unbeatable in every respect.

Dawia STTLW20 Level Wind
In the past used a Penn 440 level wind, always an excellent drag, alas, it got old.
Switched to the Saltist W20; GREAT reel, couldn't be happier.
Smooth drag, lots of line capacity, and 6:1 ratio reel just gets the line back fast.
