Diawa BG 2500

Recommended Posts

I have two of these light salt water reels. Great so far.  The 2500 is about the same size as most 3000s made by other companies . Great for smallmouth or light salt water. Amazon has them for $83. Pretty easy to take apart and clean and grease and still work. Lots of good reviews on line.

Cool thanks. Might go for a 2000. Always had luck with Daiwa. Do these bind up if they get dunked?

Read the review by Allen Hawk that’s what sold me. I’ve gotten these reels pretty wet maybe a little sticking but the next day they’re fine. Never have to break them down. The one I took apart and cleaned and greased after a week in the surf. Went back together easy. The drag is very good but you might have to tighten it down more than your average reel. I’ve been going tight and then loosening it if it’s a really big fish. On the salt water fish I think I have it really tight but then that little bit of slippage has saved me on this reel. I’ve Purchased  four or five of the Pflueger president reels this reel  seems a lot better. The  price is about the same.
