The Daiwa BG has been lead stallion in the Daiwa stables for decades now. This much love threadline reel is re-released as a brand new reel from 2016. In keeping with the modern trend of everything retro being cool, the fishing industry seems to be no different releasing old as new. A quick look at the specs however, and you will see a Daiwa BG is packing a pretty significant list of Daiwa flagship technology, all for a price that is certain to whet the appetite and point you straight to the credit card.
The models below represent the medium size reels that are usually considered general purpose all-rounders. There is always a balancing act with the general purpose reel. There need to be enough sensitivity in the fishing reel so lighter inshore work doesn’t feel like you are poking a winch at a Guppy, While enough strength and power to deal with bigger species from your boat, the ocean rocks and the surf.
The Daiwa Real Four technology, encased in the lightweight aluminium body ensures you get just that. Sensitivity and great feel for Bream and Whiting etc. with the power to manage larger species. Air Rotor and a revamped ATD also add to the party, while the generous spool capacities give you time in a fight with something of size.
Hit the Surf for Mulloway and Aussie Salmon, or tackle top end Barra of mammoth size from the rivers. Hit the rocks and cast slices at Mackerel or work the bombies and shallow for Drummer. From the boat you will have access to near shore Snapper as well as smaller pelagic species. Cast big soft plastics back at the rock face into the wash for spectacular action on Kingfish.
Whatever your poison, your new Daiwa BG will have you covered for a huge range of application on shore and off. Get yours now while the prices are HOT.
