The Daiwa BG range of spin reels otherwise known as Black Gold series needs little introduction. Most anglers will be aware of the series and may well have a couple in their arsenal already. With decades of successful fishing behind it, the BG has been re-introduced in an all new model for 2016/17. The price remains accessible, and very competitive in its class. This time Daiwa have created a full range of sizes from 2000 through to the big 8000. The list bellow includes the 3 small sizes designed to cover inshore salt and fresh water applications.
The 2000, 2500 and 3000 will be perfect for hunting Bream, Flathead and Whiting in the Lakes, bays, rivers and estuaries. The fresh water anglers will find them ideal for chasing Trout, Bass and Yellow Belly. Those looking for sport action on fresh or salt based Barra will also find them an ideal choice for serious, thrill a minute light action, with the 3000 offering plenty of spool capacity and drag for bigger, more wile impoundment Barramundi. The extra Drag strength will also make the 3000 a popular choice for casting lures for bigger Perch and even Murray Cod.
Whatever your application, shore based or fishing from your boat or Kayak, you are guaranteed, smooth, consistent and reliable power and beyond spec performance when the fish hit record size. Daiwa Real 4, plus significant advances in ATD, work hand in glove with the famous Air Rotor, ABS II and Twistbuster technology, providing anglers total confidence on the water.
The Daiwa BG small size fishing reels will suit anglers of all levels seeking great value coupled with full list of proven features. The BG will take mono but is perfectly suited for the lure angler spooling up with the latest braid. The new design has all the cosmetic features modern anglers’ desire, and will look as good as it performs. Select your Daiwa BG for sale, and put it in your basket now.
