Is the shimano caenan good for throwing 1/2 to 3 oz baits

I don’t know if it would work well with heavier baits because of the graphite frame. Graphite frames will flex under a heavy load, I think you’d be fine but I’d be more concerned about a rod, do you have one that’s rated from 1/2-3 oz? I wouldn’t think you’d be able to throw that weight range on one setup.

No I don’t think anything over an ounce is going to be good for this reel.

There are different grades of each material so don't go strictly on that. When you hear about graphite frames flexing it's not from casting anything. 1/2-3oz is a big range so you're looking at a dedicated rod so why not a reel too. I'd go with a basic round reel for the heavy stuff. An Ambassaduer or Cardiff are affordable.

I have a rod for that but would a diawa reel work because i heard they are part aluminum in the frame

It depends on which Daiwa model. Settle on an application and budget then look at different manufacturers models.

Find sellers with a lot of transactions and a high rating. Just bought my first reel from eBay and saved $70 versus TW price

I just had my first eBay purchase and the reel had a factory defect the seller refunded me. so just buy from a reputable seller if theirs any problems the seller will refund and exchange the product.
