Poor ConstructionI bought this real in the 5500 size. The hilt is flimsy and the reel moves way to much while being reeled. I used this reel on the beach once, I caught a plastic bag on my leader and the reel gears kept slipping while reeling that little bit of weight in. I do not recommend this reel, I do understand that its not a really high priced reel but for $70 I would expect more.

Great customer service!We got the Daiwa reel as a Christmas gift and it broke on the 1st attempt to use it. Terrance was outstanding in helping get a new one shipped to my home. He provided excellent customer service without hesitation.
