Ratings & Reviews
Solid and smooth
Bought for surf fishing northern California. Spooled with 14 # nanofil, my go to for smooth sand beaches. Good directions, removed one of the washers to tweak spooling. Caught fish on it, so no complaints there.
Rinsed off in the sink afterwards, applied a little reel oil to line roller and bail hinges, as per instructions. Smooth. Looking forward to seeing how this reel does over time.
Bang for your buck
This is my fourth BG reel, can't beat them for the money.
Best Reel in its class
This reel is very smooth and reliable. I have been using it for a year and have never had a problem. I have been a fan of shimano for years but this reel is the best you can buy in its class. Picked it up on sale right here at fish USA.
New king of the hill
I discovered the BG while fishing the Gulf coast in 2018. Years after switching to Shimano this reel has brought me back to Daiwa. This is a no frills workhorse and in my opinion the best value spinning reel on the market.
A lot of value for the Price

Needed something to able to toss around 2-4oz lures chasing Musky/Northerns. Started looking at reviews and what some of the Saltwater folks recommended for a reasonable price, this one popped up consistently. I don't primary chase these species, but needed something when I wanted to go after some big fresh water game and for the yearly Canada trip. Last year a whole bunch of both game over 40" and what a blast. This reel (a 4k) can hold enough line of 80# braid and toss the big lures. Both drag and retrieve are very smooth for this price range. Other reviews have spoken of the durability and cranking power of this reel. Paired it with St Croix Musky rod and replaces the reel that got destroyed last summer on the third day of a Canada trip. Very tempted to get some smaller sizes for some other setups when the older reels can no longer be maintained. Should be on your list to consider, although a little heavier than similar reels on the market.
