Alright, no more questions about Daiwa's Fuego!

Recommended Posts

I'm this close |..| to pulling the trigger on a Daiwa Fuego baitcaster. I want it for a 6'6" M rod that I use to cast lighter cranks and topwaters. But I'm concerned about how well it will handle baits down to 1/4 oz. Thoughts?

i've used my friends before and managed 30+ yard casts with 1/4 spinnerbaits, i don't think you'll have a problem with it, right now on ebay there is one for 149.99, that's what i call a deal!

With 1/4 the reel works fine, lower than that get in trouble without upgrade.

I recently bought one of these, and I cannot say enough good things about the reel.  Trust me when I say you wont be disappointed, with your purchase. ;D

Alright, I did it. I walked into my favorite tackle/gun shop to look for a gun safe for my father-in-law. I walked back to the fishing section and saw something that wasn't there earlier this week. A "Sale" sign on the Fuego. Regularly $199.99 ($229 msrp), on clearance for $149.99. I asked if that was for the display model and I was told "No," it was on all the Fuegos they had in stock. They had nine. At $149, I bought two. How can you pass that up? They told me "it just hasn't sold very well." Lucky me!

BTW, the store is Greentop in Glen Allen, VA (near Richmond, VA). You can do limited buying on-line, but if you call them they will sell over the phone and will ship to you. $149 for a $229 reel. That's a incredible deal. 7 left....
