Daiwa Spinning Reels For The Beginner

Welcome to our website. Here you will be able to find suppliers of all the popular Daiwa Spinning Reels and at excellent prices! Find the reel that is perfect for the type of fishing you will be doing. If you haven't chosen a spinning reel before, below are a few tips on what to look for.
Start with a Simple, Solid Middle of the Road Reel
You should look for a reel with a solidly constructed body and no loose, flimsy parts. In general, the fewer moving parts, the less likelihood of breakdown. If you are going to use the reel in saltwater, you may want to focus on graphite reels as opposed to aluminum.

Check the Bearing Count
One of the most important things in choosing a reel is the number of ball bearings in the drive mechanism. The bearings are important because they determine how smooth the reel is in casting and retrieving. If you have less than five bearings, there is more play in the crank, and it is more difficult to crank smoothly. Diawa has some fine reels with only three ball bearings but, if you can afford to pay just a little more, you can move up to a reel like the Regal-Xi with ten bearings! More bearings also have an impact on long-term wear so remember that the more ball bearings, the better.
What's the Gear Ratio?
The gear ratio determines how many times the reel spool turns for each turn of the handle. Ratios below 4 to 1 are considered low speed, while those above 6 to 1 are considered high. The best all around ratio to start with is around 4 to 4.5 to 1. You will find that you will naturally start specializing with different reels as you try different types of fishing, but your first spinning reel should be one that will work in the most situations.


Front or Rear Drag?
Front drag systems are more durable, but the rear drag models are a lot easier to adjust when you are fighting a fish. With either, the best system is usually whichever is the mechanically simpler one. Also, make sure you loosen the drag between fishing trips, so you don't have any premature wear on any of the parts.


Match the Reel to the Line You Will Be Using
For freshwater applications, ten-pound test line will probably be the highest strength line you would use. If you are going to make long casts or the fish you are after are likely to run with the line, you will need a larger capacity reel. Fish like bass can put up a good fight if they are large enough so that you may need the heavier line. Make sure you check the reels you are looking at to make see that they are rated for the weight and length of the line you will need.
