Daiwa megaforce plus reel!!!

Recommended Posts

I went to the daiwa website and saw this reel:http://daiwa.com/Reel/detail.aspx?ID=466  Its been updated with 11 bearings and 7.1:1 ratio.  I might get this one and hope that it will be more reliable than the last one.

Wow 11 bearings. Not much of a difference from the original, which I currently got a couple weeks ago. The only difference is 11 bearings and a different handle. If its the same price I might get one  :)

If considering a Daiwa® gimmick reel then why not go with the original Viento®, less that 1 spool revolution between them. Oh btw the other bearings aren't anywhere you will notice them....

Just my .02¢ from the bench..

Tight Lines!!!

If the other one you have isn't reliable , why consider buying  this one?

That was my initial thought too.  Figured they just added a nicer handle with some bearings there.

That is the main problem with Daiwa® lately. They don't have anyone to copy, so they have to copy within their own lines. Setting one reel against the other, there is definitely a problem at Daiwa®...

Just my .02¢ from the bench.

RM,

Of all the reels on the market what would you condsider to be the best buy? Of course taking reliability and cost into consideration.

What I would consider the "Best Buy" and what you would consider the "Best Buy", would be worlds apart. I consider the "Best Buy" for me any reel I can get for under $100. My old 97 Curado B's are the "Best Buy" I have ever made. All of the high count bearing reels I don't consider reliable, more parts more can go wrong. As far as cost take a look yourself they are all over priced in my book.

Again just my .02¢

Tight Lines!!!

Thanks, you earned my business. I have a Curado D 100 that I was condsidering sending in for an upgrade and tune-up. It seems that it will be worth it. I to have backed off on high bearing count. Does not seem to add much other than weight.

I think it is hands down the best $59 reel on the market, regardless if it has a gimmicky twitchin' bar.  I've read countless reviews of anglers that have purchased them from their local walmart and say they are the best reel they have owned (they probably don't own any higher-end reels, but whatever).  I'm a Daiwa and Shimano guy, and feel their reels are unique and they are the only brands not copying other companies designs.  Daiwa may have copied some reel designs in the 90's, but for the last 8 or 9 years they have been the most original, and the most copied by other manufacturers.  2000-2004 was the TD-S, TD-X, and TD-Z...very original/unique designs.  2004-present is the Fuego, Zillion, Steez, and the most copied reel in the last 20yrs...the Daiwa Sol.  Here is my thread about all the Sol copies...

I won't say that yet they haven't been out all that long, and I still think they have a weak spot built in, and Daiwa knows it.

I found the Megaforce to be a okay reel, but I think there are better reels out there. The twitching bar is useless in the weed-filled lakes I fish in, and the drag was constantly loosening up on its own. I had to adjust it after almost every cast.

I only used mine a few times before replacing it with a Procaster Rojo.
