Daiwa Underspin-XD Spincast Reel
Daiwa Underspin-XD Spincast Reels combine the balance of a spinning reel with the casting ease of a spincast. These upgraded versions of Daiwa's classic Underspin reels work great with spinning or noodle rods and even longer crappie rods. The Soft Touch grips make cranking easy under all conditions. Underspin-XD Spincast Reels feature a rotating, Titanium Nitrided line pickup that turns with the line for less wear, easier winding, and easier casting. Reels also feature an oversized line aperture for maximum casting performance.

Excellent combo with Pinnacle Noodle rod.

Easy to install and cast, be careful to maintain some winding tension when spooling up
Not up to par

Reel not up to par for Daiwa. Line does not come out smoothly. Seems like drag adjustment knob in face of cover impedes line flow. Seems as if it is too long so line has a hard time getting around it without friction.
nice reel for perch'n

Bought this for one handed use for my son with c.p. He is 6 and can easily operate this reel. Size 80 has a smooth rear drag and casts a mile! Fish USA was hands down best price, and it arrived in 2 days on a Saturday with their free shipping on $30+. Ordering a spare tonight.

I have been a big fan of underspin reels for many years, and when I needed a new one, I thought I'd try the Daiwa. Very good price point, and looked nice. When I made my first cast, I was elated - it cast both accurately and for good distance. With every retrieval, however, it got harder and harder to reel in .... it seemed almost waterlogged, like the water on the line (which was the line that came with the reel) was flooding it. By the 20th cast, it was impossible to use, even though every cast out was great. I am going to dry it out and see if it works better, but if not, or if it has the same problem, I am sending it back.
Impressed so far

Bought this for my elderly buddy. He’s fished his entire life but has lost some dexterity in his fingers. This was the answer we’ve been looking for. There’s still ice on the lakes here, but he’s been out in the backyard practicing. It casts extremely smooth. Have yet to test out the drag.
I’m happy that I won’t have to wear a full faced helmet when fishing on his boat with him. Lol
