Just wanted to make a post in regards to this particular reel. First off I just wanted to shed a little light on my situation. Last summer striper run in the ocean my buddy graciously allowed me to use his setup since my gear was aimed towards light action combos for plugging in the bay. Despite his well meaning I found his 12' ugly stick coupled with a penn 950SSm and 130 lb. braid to be way too heavy and bulky to handle. I could barely get it out past the second set of breakers and my rig would get washed up onto shore. Anyhow later on in the year another buddy of mine gave a first generation shimano curado and I feel in love with casting reels. I did some research on the benefits and preferred methods of east coast striper anglers and decided to look for an open faced conventional reel. Distance was and is my goal. It eventually came down to the Daiwa and the Penn 525mag.Of course I chose the Daiwa because of the spool capacity and tremendous drag on it. I finally received it four days ago and coupled it with a 10' heavy action ocean master surf rod from bass pro shops. Ive been practice casting with it and I am amazed. On my second cast I intended to thumb it lightly to prevent a backlash but forgot to and nonetheless the spool spun freely and no backlash came about. Two days later I am still casting without thumbing the spool and have had only three minor backlashes. My longest cast so far is 88 yards. Im using 25lb. main line and a 3oz. sinker. My three backlashes came with a 5oz. sinker that in several subsequent cast provided no backlash. For those who are familiar with the reel I currently have the red blocks (biggest centrifugal brakes) and I am looking to reach and surpass the 100 yard mark with a 3oz. sinker. God willing once I get that I want to up it to a 4oz. sinker and adjust (if needed) and hit the 100 yard mark as well. Im just astonished by the fact that I haven't had to thumb the spool thus far with a 3&5oz. sinker and getting great distance. God willing I can get into the strike zone Ive witnessed last season with no problem.

Best long range casting Reel ever

We, that fish the Columbia River from the bank for Sturgeon need to be able to cast a distance of 600 feet (yes, six hundred) if we expect to hook up with a KEEPER. Closer to shore, you only get the little guys. This reel, the Daiwa sealine series does the job just as well as some of the $600 reels I have seen in action. The free spinning spool is about as smooth as can be expected.
I highly recommend it.

Good Reel, Poor Manual

I bought the Daiwa Sealine X 50HA. Very nice reel. Sooth operation, good clicker, lots of line capacity. It has a nice solid feel. The handle knob is large and comfortable. The reel clamp is solid and well designed. Excellent reel, especially at this price. The owner's manual is next to useless. It does tell you about features on the reel, but has extremely limited information about how to use them. It comes with two sets of centrifugal casting brake collars but almost no instructions on how to install them, which is stronger, or any other advice. If this is your first conventional reel you will be lost unless you've got an experienced friend to help you out. Wish Daiwa would charge a couple bucks more and give us a really decent owner's manual.
That manual is the reason for 4 stars instead of 5.

Best value in saltwater mid-duty casting category. I'm a big fan of the 40/50 size, as I don't find the extended gear box to get in the way, as it does for me on the 20 size. I prefer narrower reels, so the 40 is my favorite. Plenty of drag for any fish under 50 pounds, though many anglers successfully use these for much larger fish, even drag testers such as medium-sized yellowfin tuna. Recent revisions have made this a great reel, including a better handle and corrosion resistant bearings. In my opinion the 4.9:1 ratio is the most versatile, and suitable for 90+% of fishing scenarios - keep in mind that the 4.9 ratio in the 40/50 size brings in a nearly identical amount of line per handle turn as the fast 6.1 ratio in the 20/30 size due to the larger spool diameter of the 40/50. Price, casting performance, and durability combine to make the Sealine X a standout, especially in the 4.9:1.
