Daiwa Spinning Reels – Buyers Guide 2018
In my personal opinion, Daiwa spinning reels are the closest competition to the Shimano range, and they have some excellent options at all price ranges.
Although I have primarily used Shimano reels, I have purchased a couple of Daiwa reels in the last 12 months and I have been extremely impressed by them. Also, I know a lot of anglers that use them and they swear by them.
My opinion of Daiwa spinning reels was enhanced further still while I was compiling all of the information I needed to put this buyers guide together. As well as the two Daiwa reels I own, I also tried out several different reels from the Daiwa range which allowed me compile this “Best Daiwa spinning reels 2017” list.
I have included Daiwa spinning reels in this list that cover a range of prices, from the lower cost sub $100 models, to the higher priced premium Daiwa reels, so there will be something here to suit all budgets. As with all of my buyer guides here on fishingmyway.co, I may add and / or delete models throughout the year if I feel things have changed, or new models are released that warrant their place in this list.
So let’s get into the reels….
