I love the looks and detailing on the Daiwa BG spinning reel. But I like its usability much more. The waterproof drag system on this spinning reel is as good as I’ve seen on a reel in this price point. It is silky smooth on the fight, adjusts easily with the smallest of corrections available and because its water sealed it will last a long time. I feel very confident allowing the drag on the BG to do its job when I know I’ve hooked into a good fish and back the drag off on the fight.
