Are you looking to fish 20-30lb Braid with smaller lighter lures, then the Daiwa BG 5000 & BG Bluewater S792-3/5 Topwater Combo is the one.
Daiwa BG16 Series 5000 Spin Reel
BG?s aluminium body and side plate forms a reel body that is precision machined, and highly corrosion resistant, making it the ultimate body for the offshore environment. Rigid, strong and highly durable the unyielding body allows for seamless gear function and prevents twisting when the reel is under load and results in greater cranking force. Reaping the full protection and strength benefits of the new body is technologically advanced Digigear system.
Reaping the full protection and strength benefits of the new body is technologically advanced Digigear system. A highly evolved drive system, Digigear features a high precision cutting technique that achieves perfect gear meshing and ultra smooth performance.
Daiwa?s new drag, ATD implements structural changes to the spool metal of the reel that provides greater support of the spool across the entire length of the main shaft. This additional support of the spool reduces spool twist under load, promotes more even wear of the drag washers and ultimately reduces ?pulsing? of the drag when fighting the fish.
Combined with new improved drag grease that exhibits a low viscosity at rest, yet becomes more viscous immediately after drag start up. This reduces initial drag startup inertia and combined with the structural changes of the ATD Drag System results in a smoother drag from the initial hook up.
For ultimate strength and rotation, BG uses our latest version of Air Rotor, this super strong light rotor is like no other - a new revolution in strength and sensitivity. This design disperses pressure to the entire lower section of the rotor, dramatically decreasing weight, stress and flexing while massively increasing the strength.
Big on looks and big on features, the all - new, all-black and gold BG offers up a powerful combination of performance, strength and reliability in one of Daiwa?s most renowned names in heavy duty spin reels.
