reel to match daiwa supercast fixed spool rod

Post by squidwort »

can anyone help with some advice on a reel that would match up with a daiwa supercast st-x s120f 12' 4-8oz rod[/color]. i have a penn carpmaster 470c which am told would be ok but would prefer a purpose built one, maybe use penn as a back up. fishing is mainly around anglesey so mixed ground.

Okuma EZ-65 or Fox 1000 but the person to advise you would be Reel wizard.

Daiwa Emcast Sport (the sea angling version of the Evo).

Yeah get a Daiwa mate had my BF5500 for three years now with no problems - nice wide spool and winds smoothly. Mind you I do look after them, clean and oil regularly. Make sure that whatever you do the spool skirt is nice and deep cos it it ain't, sooner or later you will get line trapped underneath and probably in the dark when you won't notice it until you get a crackoff.

Know what you mean CC but with the Daiwas I have found that one can put enough drag on with just one half turn most of the time, maybe a second if you really want to tighten up.
