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!
