Hello Anglers,

Need suggestion on Daiwa BG90 Taiwan made.

I have short listed this one. Please suggest if it's a good one for salt water angling.

Regards,
Raj Ramachandran

Raj,

This is a very good reel... This was my first reel... But it is very heavy to use it for salt water spinning...

It is equivalent to Penn 950ssm or ssg....


If you get chance try to get Finnor sportfisher reel FS80

Thanks,
Bala

Go for the BG60 . good size , good reel for spinning or for trolling .. load with 50 lb braid and you should have enough of line to pull out most fish ... Tight Lines

That sounds great..... :D :D :D

Fredfish thanks once again for your suggestion. I will check if i can get the Penn as this guy has Abu Garcia Rods in 10 and 12ft range.

Hi! RAJ


if you are going to spinn from the shore then go in for tackel littel lighter weight wise. It all depends on what type of fishing gear you are looking for Bait fishing , Spinning etc .....etc..... . I suggest if you are going to fish from the shore PENN 650ssm is desent enough and as for rods 11ft Penn is very good as a multi purpose rod. I'm using Abu Gracia 9ft Bruiser got a good wip matched with a Penn 650ssm toped with Berkley 50lbs Fire line Braid when im spinning. I'm still finding this tackel a bit heavy its my personal veiw as i'm still an amature. The Abu Gracia rods are also good for the price the Nitrous and Bruiser edition.

Hi Mario,

I am a bit skeptical about the Penn reels as all are made in China and with some review of Chinese reels having some inhabitant issues is making me stay away from them.

Raj i agree with you about China and Chinese reels but a Penn made in China or else where is a Penn there may be many more superior produts but for the price a Penn really slow downs your Game fish very nicely so do other reels also.. Chiness made Penn they are tough and low in maintenance and pulls out fish with out failing. I'm just shareing my exp .

I use a Daiwa BG60 paired with a Penn Spinfisher & the combo works very well. The only drawback is that it is a bit on the heavier side for spinning all day. Regarding Chinese manufacture, they produce both top grade stuff as well as crap. However, Penn reels manufactured in China ( Have 2 chinese made Penn reels) seem to be well made & have had no complaints till date.

Cavalier

I do not know if I am late on this one, why BG90 may I ask, you heard some tails from some old timers? I have a few reels from the BG series all Japan made, including the BG90, great reels and will work well even today.

Having said this, it is an old generation reel, today I would go in for something more upto date.

Older guys will always talk highly about what they used, those "I my day" tails, you always treat this with a pinch of salt.

Everything was better, stronger and harder "in my day", if that were the case progress would be a negative thing :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
