For many, the Daiwa Morethan fishing reel formally known as Morethan Branzino is the most beautiful spinning reel ever to grace the market. One could be forgiven for purchasing this master piece only to mount it on a pedestal, adding ambient back lighting and an engraved brass name plate.

It is the Rolex, the Lear Jet of the enduring threadline classic. The Daiwa Morethan reel is completely at home in the halls of a contemporary art gallery and, equally befitting of a dashboard in a spacecraft. Calling the Daiwa Morethan an eggbeater is something akin to calling a Stonefish pretty. Enough said.

Thoughts of reigning in the upper limits of the ultimate cost of the product was unashamedly not a consideration. With all products, there is a pinnacle, the very top of the pyramid. The Morethan is definitely holds this crown when it comes to spinning reels, and the list of inclusions is superlative.
