The Daiwa Seagate Conventional Reel is an incredible reel considering the low price and great features. Boasting 20lbs of drag, this reel was designed with big, hard fighting fish in mind. The aluminum spool and light, yet strong, composite frame is perfect spending the entire day on the water.
We like this reel for several reasons. For the price, you just won't find a better, more reliable reel. The large handle and metal star drag is smooth and clicks when you turn it. The clicking is nice because it lets you know if you've accidentally turned the drag while on a fish and secures the star so it doesn't move under vibration from the boat. The incredible drag this puppy puts out is excellent allowing braid line to top shots that are far heavier than the designers intended. We spool it up with 65-80lb braid and top shots up to 80lbs which makes this reel a serious contender for bigger fish.
The castability is great with the Seagate and can be use for both a live bait rod and a jig stick. It's excellent for tuna, grouper, yellowtail, rockfish, white seabass, or any other medium to small game species. Pick one up today and get on the water!!!

Daiwa Seagate Conventional Reel
Great reel! You can cast a country mile with it and it also has a very loud clicker. Drag is smooth also. For the money, you can't buy a better reel at that price point.
I bought the reel based on reviews and a couple of my friends advice, sight unseen. Although I haven't actually used it yet (still waiting on my rod), I really like what I see. Seems to be a quality item and I'm hoping to get years of use out of it.
The guy at Tackle Express (didn't get his name) was very helpful and went above and beyond to get the reel I wanted. The whole experience was professional, and easy.
