Daiwa Megaforce?? Anyone know much about it?

Recommended Posts

I haven't seen it yet, but if it is anywhere near the quality of other Daiwa casting reels, it will be a dandy.  I just replaced a couple of old reels with 2 Daiwa Magforce PR100H reels.  I do believe they are as slick as my Revo at half the cost.

exactly what i thought. sure the twitchin bar is cool, but on a $60 the twichin bar probably aint the same as on teh viento, and the rest of the reel probably sucks too!

Yeah, it's heavy but for $70, what can you expect.   I think it's interesting that they put a twitching bar on it and would like to see how it operates.  If it does the same job as on the Viento or the Smak, it's worth looking at for the angler than can't pop $200 for a Baitcasting reel with that option.

Some make call it a gimick, but I actually like using it whe I fish Senkos or other finese baits.  It does impart a unique twitch to the bait that is very difficult to recreate without using the twitching bar.  It's also very consistent in it's retreive each time you hit the bar.  

The down side..... with the twitching bar on a heavy reel,  you'll probably get tired of holding it in just one hand  ;D

I think the profit-margin on fishing equipment is astronomical. There's no reason someone can't make a decent fishing reel and sell it for $60. Give it a whirl. It's gotten good reviews by users at Cabelas.
