Plasic is not fantastic

The smoothest and most powerful drag on the market. Tightens on a slight twist. Whats a good drag without solid components? The knob that tightens the handle broke off for no reason on only the third outing with this reel. It is made of some really flimsy low quality plastic. Huge daiwa fan, but this reel just has way too much plastic for the price. First let down for me bye daiwa.
Do not buy.
Also, the body is made of plastic. There are 30 dollar reels on the market today with metal bodies common daiwa!

Great Reel

Ive had so many different reels and this is by far my favorite spinning reel, i use it for striped bass, tautog, bluefish, and so on. has not let me down once and would love to get an 80 lb tuna hooked onto it. I could go on and on about this reel but simply if its a great reel, i would have expected to spend more money on for a reel with these features. Oh and the pictures don't do this reel justice, when i opened the package this reel just shines and looks great my hands were a bit shaky when holding it i was so excitied! Love the spare spool to.
I only use daiwa since Ive purchased this reel.

overall the reel is OK BUT the drag isn't that great!
When fighting large fish its not smooth at all.
The reel needs some work and not worth the Money.

Awesome Reel

Use this reel 3-5 times a week for stripers, have caught up to 30 lb and this things handles them like nothing. I have thrown top-water to jigging 6 oz with this reel. Its smooth and most important, consistent. Line lay evenly when retrieving, haven't had any wind knot issue. I like the manual bail, haven't has issues with it prematurely closing while casting.
