So I recently was going to buy a Daiwa bg 5000 but when I was just looking at reviews I stumbled upon the Daiwa bg magsealed the supposedly better version but the thing that sucks is that i can only get it on European online stores that kill my wallet... Anyone know if the bg magsealed is worth it in the end to spend $200+ or should I just stick with the regular bg that would cost me $100?

What are you using it for that you would need magsealed?

None, there are numerous reports of bg getting broken here.

And that is main gear assembly broken type of stuff, not just hanle knob, bail arm .. problems.

Not convinced.....

Not my reel, but was fairly close to tossing it in the bin.

The sand under the mag-seal. How the hell did that get in there?

To be fair - reel has clearly been abused, but how on earth did those particles of sand get past the gap, never mind the mag seal oil?

I think magsealed reels also are horrible for maintenance since you can’t open them or the oil just gets everywhere.. but I just wanted opinions...

That`s salt.

I had idea for spool, line fixation, but Alan said that salt would be the problem for that too. Together with multitude of diameters. If applied on mass scale - production.

Just surf fishing, just wondering if it’s worth the extra $100
