  1. Hey all, New to the forum - came across a few posts on Google while searching for a new reel. I'm looking to get a new Daiwa reel for my 9ft Ocean Master (Medium 1-3oz), mostly targeting Stripers in the surf (both nearshore bays and ocean). I'm on the fence between the SS2600 and BG4000. I'm very familiar with the SS Tournament series as I've been using various sizes of that model my whole life, from freshwater Bassing (700 & 1300) to Fluking in the bays (1600). I've read really good things about the BG4000, and the price/specs are almost identical minus the extra ball bearings in the BG, just can't seem to get myself to buy it just yet. I really enjoy the feel of the SS series and it would be a nice transition up from the 1600 for a surf rod, but the BG might be a bit smoother and more resistant to salt and the elements. Still, leaning towards the SS2600 due to trust/familiarity. (Note: Already looked into the 4500, it's a bit too big at 22oz for what I'm trying to do. Rather cast lures/jigs than chuck bait). Anyone have experience with both of these reels and can help me decide a winner? Appreciate any insight!

  5. For many many years, the JDM has had telescopic rods and in this case, a surf rods.But they were convenient to use, easy to transport, and took up very little space. So many people liked its design and function. I know where in the US theres a bad stigma about them. Alot of yall dont like telescopics, called them cheap, wimpy, fragile, etc. Yada yada yada whatever. If youre not open minded, dont keep reading, ignore this post. In my findings, the rods are getting better and better. Even matching the quality of their 2 or 3pc counterparts. I just wanted to revisit them again. Traditionally most rods in japan were for lighter applications. 1-3,4oz, light baits. Shrimp, worms, etc. To target the smaller table fish in the local waters. So years back, as a guinea pig because I love innovation that can make things easier or fun. I took in a entry mid tier Daiwa Prime T rod. It was rated #27 on daiwas scale. About 60-100 grams full power casting. 150g was doable but can feel the rod getting bogged down. But if i stayed within parameters it was great. I sold that to a friend in Florida and he still uses it for pomps on the beach throw 3 and shrimp. Was a nice rod. It packs down great, the 3 pieces slide and nest in with each other, a cap holds the guides and pieces in place. Nothing falls out, lightweight, good overall. At a 27 rating, power was a bit lacking for my tastes, i usually need to use 4-8oz plus bait for my lazy fishing (yes yes shame me for using bait, screw you too), for my usual fishing spots. So 3oz wont really cut it. i am someone who is used to using Century and Zziplex rods, which most can hurl full pendulums, 24.7, 50-150++yards out. So its not fair to compare the tele to a heavy 2pc beachcaster. Even the weight is massively different. 300-400g average on the teles, to 600-750g British rods. The UK rods uses MUCH more carbon, resulting in rods capable of MUCH more power to withstand those crazy casts. This time around, to get a better idea, i said screw it and just dived into the pool, not just wet my foot. This model was released a few years ago, but i never considered it too much. Bit my lip, ordered one of their top of the line model instead. Daiwa Tournament Surf T. Power Torque 34-405. https://www.daiwa.com/jp/fishing/item/rod/nage_rd/t-surf-t_powertorque/index.html If youre familiar with the model number, doesnt it look similar to the Ballistics we use here? Ballistics usually come in 33, 35, 40. 405 being the length of the rod. Yes sir, this is a tele rod with a 34 rating. Slotting it right between a ballistic 33 and 35. Which many people use to throw 3-8oz. With a Msrp of 62800 yen. About $500 odd USD. See where im going with this train of thought? The heaviest Surf T goes up to a monster 37 rating FOR A TELESCOPIC ROD!. (29, 31, 34, 37). I wanted a all around rod instead of a straight up telescopic heaver. So the 34 is perfect. I use my Centurys for heaver work. I will test it when i have a chance this summer with 3-6oz n bait. To be fair, when i go test, i will use my ballistic 33-405 right next to it. So its kind of apples to apples comparing. Ill use it with my good ol Basia 45 QD. In hand, you can really appreciate how gorgeous the rod is. How nice the fit and finish, and quality of parts. Toray nano carbon, fuji sic guides, beautiful form fit reel seat. Rod slides out easily, has positioning dots so you know it's aligned. The guides itself have splines, and it mates up with splines on the rod for a 100% positive lock. It took me about 30 seconds to draw out the rod and lock the guides. Thats quick. That also means, if i leave a reel on the rod. Hop out the car, loosen drag 1 turn, pull the tip, click all the guides as i draw towards butt (easy to see alignment as tiptop and 4th guide is fixed) straight out, hook a bait. Boom 30 seconds. Im fishing. I bent the rod butt against wall corner. Bends like a 1pc, feels exactly the same as a ballistic 33 and 35 in curve and power. Nice. So far, i like it alot more than the previous entry level 27-405 prime rod i tried. Since im not going fishing soon, just look at some pics and ill update sometime in the future.

  9. For your consideration, a brand new & unused rod and reel that I bought with the intent of using on party boats but instead is just collecting dust. Rod - Daiwa Proteus Inshore - PRIN66HXB-NE - 6'6" rated to cast 0.5-1.5oz, though I feel it would comfortably jig 1-5oz Reel - Daiwa Coastal TW 200 Inshore baitcaster - weighs 8.1oz, 15lb drag, 8 bearings I feel like this could be used for a lot of things like jigging for tog/fluke, casting from a yak, or targeting snakeheads. Rod has loads of backbone and has no defects nor the reel. Who just got their tax return? Asking $330 shipped OBO, venmo, paypal, etc.
  10. I appreciate the add! I’m OCD when it comes to fishing gear and I tend to go down lengthy rabbit holes. I’ve watched most of Scoob’s videos on youtube and I can’t decide on my next 3000 for inshore. I’ll be pairing with a St. Croix Avid or Bull Bay rod 7’ M-F Shimano Stradic FL or Daiwa Back Bay LT

  12. FS: 2015 Daiwa Saltiga 5000H. $650 plus shipping This reel is in fantastic shape and has been used infrequently. I purchased it in 2020 as NOS, just sitting at my local dealer in the box. It's spooled up with 30lb braid. I believe it's PowerPro but I am not positive. Includes the bag, box, and paperwork. It's simply not getting used. I'm more of a fly and surf guy these days.
  13. Take a look at Daiwa sites other than the US, such as Australia and France, to name just two. Daiwa France has a specific section for Surf Fishing Reels - they offer 10 different models, all of LC design, a significant number with Mag Seal Protection. How many surf reels does Daiwa US offer? LC Spinning - zero and they dropped the Tournament Millionaire Mag 7Ht conventional, both the Super Tuned and Fishing models. I was recently told by them that they no longer service the Saltiga Surf, Tournament Basia QD45 (Carp LC) or Tournament Millionaire Mag conventionals, which contradicts their previous position that they will always support any reel ever sold here, as long as it is in production somewhere in the Daiwa international network. And incidentally, Daiwa Australia refused my request to purchase a spare spool for my Saltiga Surf Spinning reel. Great support for decades long customer loyalty, as in since 1978.
  14. I just stocked up on sp minnows and cracked open the packages to switch up the hardware. I pulled out the 3/0 VMCs to put on the 17 size so minnow and realized the hooks on the plug seem to be carbon copies of a 3/0 vmc. Did they start putting good hardware on these things? If so, did the do it for the 15 and 13 size as well? I did do a quick search and couldn’t seem find any topics on it. Thanks in advance.
  15. Just picked up a new in box Daiwa Cross Cast reel (sealed and all with tamperproof packaging), it seems to be a bad leak but I'm not familiar with what might have caused it. As you can see from the photo one of the sides is totally slick with oil. Is it defective from the factory (meaning I should contact the retailer asap) or did someone just apply way too much oil (and it'll be OK if I just wipe it off)? Any advice is much appreciated!
  16.

  17. Hi there. I've had a ball servicing my bg 4500. It went so smoothly and I'm almost finished with servicing it. I've tried my hardest to get this retention spring back in and cannot for the life of me figure out why it will not. I have repeated the bearing atleast 4 times now and cannot get the spring in place. No matter what I seem to do, it will not snap back down. I've watched tackle advisors video and many others. Can I get some support here please?

  20. I used to be 75% baitcasting/conventional and 25% spinning from shore. However, it has reversed and I'm using my spinning gear more. I decided to sell those that I don't use much anymore. Check my other threads for additional baitcasters. I will list them separately so it's easier to keep track of. Daiwa Coastal TWS (CLTW200HS). I took it out a handful of times and it has minor wear and tear marks. The biggest flaw is the handle. One of the caps fell off and I just plugged it, LOL. Please zoom in and look at the pictures closely. I'm asking for $120 shipped. It's spooled with 40lb Sufix 432 Braid. It was my spare for Shimano TranX. But the TranX is still going.
  21. I decided to sell some of the reels that I don't use much anymore. Check my other threads for additional baitcasters. I will list them separately so it's easier to keep track of. Daiwa Lexa 400 Type HD (LEXA-HD400XS-P). I used it about a dozen times for tog fishing from boat. There's normal wear and tear and you can see in the pictures. No problems mechanically. I'm asking for $190 shipped. It's spooled with Daiwa Samurai Green 55 lb braid. I couldn't find the box.
