WTB - Daiwa BG 8000

8 posts in this topic

I have one, it's missing the screw handle cap, I've been waiting on a replacement from Daiwa for years and don't expect it to arrive anytime soon.  I used this mostly for vertical jigging (after 3 month I downsized to the BG5000 and never went back) and a little bit of 8 'n bait, after awhile I took it apart to regrease it and haven't used it since.  Some coating worn off on the reel stem/foot, probably 8/10 cosmetically (9/10 from 3' back).

 

Would like to get $85 shipped via PayPal.

Thanks. Why are you having a hard time getting the part from Daiwa?

Why not buy the Penn SSV 8500 ll I have for sale. It’s 500 better than the 8000 you are looking for, and it has a bait feeder. $90.00 shipped to your door.

Thanks for the thought FH. I’ve pretty much switched my entire fleet over to BG’s.  3000-5000. Now just need an 8000. 

 

Im unloading all my Stella’s and Saltigas. Just don’t fish enough anymore to keep $700 reels around collecting dust.

Just following up here, are you interested in the reel?  I don't have an answer for why it's hard other than I tried getting the part back in April 2018 and after Daiwa took my name and address to send a replacement part it still hasn't arrived

C,

 

Thanks for following up. I am going to pass. I’m surprised over the part issue, but don’t want to be in the same boat.
