Bad Parts From the Start

The fish are coming in and I can't use my new reel. I have had the reel for less than 2 months and had my first breakdown. When I would reel in, there was a drag in the reel. I thought it would loosen up, but it just got worse. Since I am in Cabo San Lucas, it is difficult to just send the reel back to the manufacturer, so I took it apart and found the gear post was cutting into the guide and causing the drag. I called the manufacturer and they were very responsive in getting the parts sent to me. However, the jury is still out on the quality of this product. If or when I get the parts replaced, I will be able to provide a more substantial user evaluation.

Received my reel (5000 BRi model) yesterday, mounted it on my new rod, lined it.
I'm happy to say, I caught three nice Bluecats, no problem with casting or bringing in the fish.
I read the other two reviews, fortunately I didn't have the problems one of the other reviewers had, (time will tell). I also have quite a few Daiwa reels, different models, some are bait runners. If I can get the service I got from them, I'll be very happy with this one.

good value

great reel for the price basically a knock off bait runner at a budget price. i use it for cut bait fishing striper a lot I've had the reel for about three months now and its not failed me yet. smooth casting and speedy retrieval. could be a little smoother and the front drag can be a little touchy but overall a good reel for the price. The bait runner feature is good and very usable and easy to operate i just wish the transition was a little easier between the two but what more do i expect for $50 dollars? once again a great functional reel with good features...i do plan on upgrading to a real bait runner in the near future

Daiwa Bait runner 5000

This reel is fantastic, Excellent engineering and great all round appeal.
Adjustable drag for playing larger fish and adjustable bait runner drag for using live baits.
A single turn of the crank arm disengages bait runner clutch to start winding in the monster fish. This is a bit larger than the reels I'm used to and the crank arm has a slightly larger turning diameter, so just a bit of getting used to.
Another bonus is the spare spool. If their not biting on the lead sinker, then a quick change of spool with thinner line is easy. One dislike is that the spool is fixed with a thread not a quick release button, but for the price and overall quality this is a minor point. I ordered one to start with just to see, and as is the next 2 should arrive in a couple of days.
Great reel, smooth workings, great quality and sits great in the reel clamps with no wobble.
