Cheap Reel

Recommended Posts

Well folks I probably have sucker written on my head but I have wasted 8 dollars on worse. What I am talking about is this reel I just bought on ebay. Its coming from japan so I dont know when I will get it but for 8 bucks with free shipping I just had to try. It looks like some of the older daiwa plastic reels. Heck they were made in japan too so it could be a copy of some kind. Anyway if anyone else is interested here is a linkhttp://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=390106254443&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT#ht_935wt_958

You coulda sent me $4 and I would have pooted in your direction and you'd be better off - and saved $4.

Seriously, though, you have to post some pictures and a review when you get that.  That's awesome!  ;D

Yep I thought the shipping from japan should have been way more. Anyway like I said I've wasted 8 bucks. Hey I could easily throw 8 dollars worth of lures off the boat.

If anything, you can use it for a fishing weight.

I enjoy the awesome directions on how to use it

Using Method:

-   Push it to On side, the handle can't rotate back to draw back the line.

-   Pull it ot Off side, the handle can rotate back and front to free out the line

-   You can leading the fishing line through the DRAW-Ring and tighten and push the WIND

-   Switch to ON side and shake the handle if you want to wind line on roll.

-   This roll is very fit for permanent point fishing and it also used for throw-fishing.

I like to throw fish with this type of reel with braid; however, the draw ring gets grooves.

I think you'll get more than $8 worth of enjoyment out of talking about your Japanese "throw-fishing" reel. ;D

Throw it off your boat and scream: "Fug U Whale!" Fug U Dorrrrrrrphin!"

I have no idea where that is from, but it is one of the few things I have read on here that literally made me audibly laugh.   ;D

Hey if you can't cast with it you might be able to use it trolling ( I can't believe I used the T word ) or you can put some real heavy line on it and tie your bait knocker to it thereby having every thing neat,

It's only about $542 less than the reel that was actually used to catch the record.  ;D

Cool little reels from my teenage years, though its not a Brush Buster.  Brush Busters had no line carriage.
