Diawa Megaforce

Recommended Posts

Anyone have this real?  I was thinking about getting the combo that bass pro has for 110 right now where its paired with the bass pro bionic blade rod.  I am just going to use this combo with top waters with the 7.1 to 1 geàr ratio.  The twitching bar seems nice.

I had one for about 3 days.  I just was never really happy with it.  Took it back and picked up a BPS PQ on sale.  Much, much happier with that.  The reviews on the Daiwa weren't that spectacular either.  A bunch of them had worm gears breaking on them.  Not exactly a nice thing to find out about down the road.

I had one and didn't care for it. I gave it to a friend of mine who was in need of a reel.

I had one for a very short time. I think I might've used it a half-dozen times before getting rid of it. Peformance was far from impressive and the drag required readjustment after every cast. I think there are better things to spend $60 on.

The rod might not be bad, but I don't know for sure. My brother-in-law has been using one for a while now and seems to like it, but I've never tried it.

I had one and actually just sold it thru the flea market here. The reel worked pretty good and I actually did use the twitchin bar to catch a couple fish while sight fishing. I only used it for jigs and shakey head worms and it worked pretty well for me.

I wanted one when they first came out, after getting my hands on it I wasn't greatly impressed with it.  I have smaller hands and had to reposition to use the twitchin bar.  I personally felt it was kinda clunky as well.

Thanks guys.  Yeah a lot of the reviews were bad.  They said the twitching bar breaks a lot.  I think I'm just going to spend the extra money and get a revo.  The twiching bar just had me very interested.

Y'all are just haters. Ive had one for about two years and it beats the heck out my other $60 reels. Ill admit, its not one of my big bad reels I always use but it makes a good'un for keeping an extra bait tied on for if you break one off and dont have an opportunity to retie.

I've owned my share of cheap reels, and my old $35 Pinnacle Platinum Plus was smoother and more trouble free than my Megaforce.

Good Idea, The revo S is a great starting reel, it was my friends first high quality baitcaster and he loves it. Simple and efficient. there was one on the flea market for 90 tyd or b/o. I just got an STX and can't wait to try it out.

Heres the link to that revo, i think its still up for sale

Wow, am i the only person who like this reel? i have never had a single complaint about mine. i also have never had a single problem either. the cast control works great. i have it on a 7 ft all star 12 lb suffix seige and it will cast a tx rigged weightless 5" senko extremely well. maybe its the blakemores reel magic i put on the line while spooling. i dont know, but i would recommend this reel to anyone. i dont really use the twitchin bar like i thought i would. but its still pretty cool.

I didn't have one problem with mine and only sold it cause I added some other reels and thought it would be a way for someone to pick up a half decent rod and reel from the board cheap. I didn't have any problems with the twitchin bar either and caught a couple of LM using the bar and a shakey head. It was a great reel with not one problem.
