So now got yerself a Daiwa FS Reel too? Actually I use their BF5500's which are cheaper than the Opus but just as good in my experience although you may have to hunt around a bit. One of my BF5500's is now 4 years old and I fish two or three times a month so I think they are fairly reliable (no matter what anyone else may say).
