Diawa Megaforce with "Twitchin" bar..anyone had experience with this reel??

Recommended Posts

I have the Viento, which has a twitching bar, and I just purchased the Megaforce. I actually don't use the twitching bar much, but the viento is a great reel. I purchased the Megaforce, because it seemed like a good reel for the money and not specifically for the twitching bar. You may have fun with it for a while, but in the long run, you may not use it much.

I own one, and i like it so far.  It casts a mile and mine is pretty smooth.  I got it a couple months ago, and i have only used it a couple times.  Been too busy hunting.  But from the initial use, i have put it through i like it and the price was nice.  When i did fish with it, i mainly used the twitchin bar to reel in slack, not actually work the bait.

Hey all...

I was cruisn E-bay for the next big fishing deal when I came upon this:

http://www.daiwa.com/Reel/detail.aspx?ID=234

What do you folks think? This reel can be had for around $60.00. I like the twitchin switch idea.

Good deal or just another gimmick???

You can belong to either side:

To group A

who is ready to shell out the money for what looks to be a "good deal" specially when it comes to new products with absolutely no track record.

To group B

of skeptical selfish sobs who like to watch the fight from oustide the ring that don 't shell out a penny until group A has shelled the money getting and trying a product with absolutely no track record.

Or Group C

someone who got the reel brand new for half price and couldn't resist tring it out.

I think Daiwa is gunna revolutionize the low end reel market with the megaforce and exceler reels. It will open up a new Daiwa fan base that otherwise would not own a daiwa because of the high prices.

Daiwa like any other manufacturer has products for any budget, one of the best reels for 70 dollars is the Procaster 6+1 ( PR100H/HL ) which is being clearanced everywhere ( most probably discontinued already ), it 's better than any Shimano in that price range.

I got one for Christmas and fished it once just to try it out. It is a pretty good reel but I don't like it as much as the Quantum Accurists I use now. I am planning to sell it on E bay when I get around to it, but I will let you have it for $50 including shipping if you are interested.

just wait til you get an exceler in your hands- I am a huge critic and own high end gear- I simply could not believe the thing was at that price range.

I was thinking it would be good for maybe drop shotting or jerkbait fishing.  So you could keep 1 hand warm in your pocket and the other reeling in slack;

that's only because those are the only techniques i use when it's freezing cold out. :)
