Real deal reel!

First, I will admit my first Daiwa purchase was a disappointment. I bought the hyper speed real and promptly returned it for lack of cranking power for bottom fishing.
However, this two speed reel is the real deal! I did some research on all similar makes and models and what I can tell you is that this is the best dollar for dollar purchase. Granted, I have not fished the other models, but don't feel the need after this one. I have let other people try it and they loved it. In fact one of my buds bought a similar saltist model (black) and he loves his.
I would have to agree with one of the other reviews in that when you shift to low speed it does feel like you have lost the fish; just keep reeling or raise the pole. I basically leave it in high speed and reel in slow and steady not to lose the fish and shift down if it becomes a struggle. I use this reel primarily for cod, haddock, pollock in the NE area and has worked out great. It may be over kill, but I also use it for stripper because it is such a sweet reel.
It sure does attract some well deserved attention and conversation from curious onlookers too!

I have 4 Daiwa reels and i must say that this 2 speeds is no joke when it comes to bottom fishing. When you are reeling in a fish and drop it down to low speed, it feels like you don't have anything on the line!! The only thing I did pick up on was that the high speed was a little harder to reel compared to my other reels. I'm not sure if that is because the reel was brand new!! It is a sweet bottom fishing reel and if I was you i would get one also!
Also I got my 1st Cobia(22 lbs) on it down in the Tortuga and it came up like a yellowtail!
