Daiwa BG Saltwater Spinning Reels are so smooth with digitally cut gears and seven ball bearings. Daiwa BG has been redesigned; lately, these reels are now extremely powerful yet priced just right. There’s a size for your every fishing need, whether it’s inshore, offshore, or shark fishing. The next generation of the ever-popular Daiwa BG Saltwater Spinning Reels spinning reel series just got leaner and meaner. This complete series ranges from ultralight freshwater actions to heavy big game saltwater models.
Feature Details: Latest Daiwa BG TECHNOLOGY Used in This Reel
This is a wonderful reel. I’ve owned a Daiwa reel for over a year now, and it’s still silky smooth. It’s taken numerous dunks under the water in the surf and been dropped many times in the lakes and creeks surrounding my neighborhood. After some fair self-servicing and cleaning, it’s as smooth as the day I bought it. The only complaint I have is the line roller bushing, and it’s worn thin. I wish it was a bearing instead. So let’s check out the features-
Black Anodized Machined Aluminum Housing (“Hard Bodyz” Body & Side Cover)
Daiwa BG is equipped with a machined aluminum body and body cover, providing strength and internal part stability. To increase the strength in the form of corrosion and scratch resistance, Daiwa has Black Anodized the body and body cover. The anodization process allows for better adhesion to the aluminum and will not chip or peel like a painted surface, extending the brilliant look of the BG spinning series.
OVER-SIZED DIGIGEAR™ (DIGIGEAR™ SYSTEM)
Daiwa BG spinning series have integrated the largest drive gear in the history of Daiwa spinning reels. The benefit of having this oversized gear increases gear-tooth contact points, and this provides smoother and extended gear life as well as more power and increased torque.
Solid Screw-In Handle
Daiwa’s Screw-in-Handle design provides zero movements or play between the main gear and handle arm. This lack of movement offers the angler both confidence and control when rotating the handle.
The Air Rotor weighs up to 15% less than ordinary rotor designs. Its unique shape reduces unnecessary weight while distributing stress more evenly throughout the rotor for maximum strength.
The ABS spool’s maximized core diameter and reversed taper mean 100% usable line. No “dead” line is buried in a deep core. You can fill it with a line right up to the edge of the spool lip without fear of tangles. ABS cause less casting friction for longer and easier casting. The huge spool diameter line flows freely in larger coils and produces less line memory coil. Smaller spool diameter means line flows in tighter coils as well.

My Personal Review on Daiwa BG Spinning Reels
Great for the price
This pushes the high-end reel market without breaking the bank. You really cannot go wrong by adding this reel to your arsenal.
The only reel I truly trust
Smooth in both inshore and offshore
The attached photo is a 23.5″ largemouth taken with a 2000 size Daiwa BG spooled with 6lb Sniper. The reel was flawless all the way through the fight, absorbing multiple strong runs smoothly and gaining line with every turn of the handle. I headed to the coast for some inshore fishing in a few weeks and looking forward to giving these a workout down there. If you’re looking for a reel in the $100 range and aren’t considering this one, you’re making a bad mistake. Believe the hype, Daiwa has produced a real winner here.
