I serviced a ton of those reels back in the early 90's they were truly a PIA back then...
I have one I recieved as a gift quite a few years back. I was wondering if it is a decent real to learn with. I've never really used it, just had it sitting around as I always preferred spinning reels. I'd like to learn to use a baitcaster and would like some opinions on this reel. Thanks.
Daiwa® PS2L-5B (Circa 90-91) The reel is over 15 years old and discontinued (Not all parts available). It was never one of Daiwa's better reels even for that time period. If it is your choice to do so, I would recommend that you have the reel serviced locally, as the oils and grease that were used back then, have dried out and solidified enough that the reel will not perform well at all.
Just my .02¢
Good Luck & Tight Lines!!!
