Daiwa Capricorn 2500XTC

Recommended Posts

Anyone have an experience with this reel?  I noticed it only has a 4.7:1 Gear Ratio.. and I'm not too sure how this affects me.. but I just read a second ago that 6:1 is probably the best all around..  and since I wanted to use this as my all around reel.. hmm.. thinking I have to return it.. but I did manage to get it for a steel... paid 39bucks for it..

I believe the 6 to 1 gear ratio might have been referred to a baitcaster. Very few spinning reels have that high of a ratio. The 2500 is a spinning reel right?

If you are looking for a high speed spinning reel Plueger does make them. Not sure about Diawa.

Uncle Leo is right that was a BC GR that was posted....

Yeah that reel (Capricorn 2500XTC) is a 5.1:1 GR reel, most all SP reels are running the middle to high 5's in GR. The Regal SP's only run a 5.3:1, the Steeze SP's only run a 4.8:1 GR..  

Tight Lines!!!!

This reel is a Dick's exclusive. I bought it in a combo paired with a St. Croix Triumph and it is my favorite all around reel. Its a workhorse with Hardbodyz aluminum design, it can really take a beating. Very smooth with 7+1 bearings.
