Is a Daiwa Mag sealed BG4500 okay for shore spinning?
« on: August 26, 2019, 11:05:24 AM »
Good afternoon Guys


Looking to purchase a Daiwa BG4500 mag sealed for pairing with a 11ft rod to use for spinning from shore. using spoons.


Will this be a good reel?

It wont. Will be a bit heavy for your retail store 11ft spinning rods.

Hi


what would you use in this case?

Shimano Nasci 5000
Shimano Stradic 5000
Shimano Sustain 5000
Daiwa BG 3000
Penn Slammer 3500/4500
Penn Spinfisher IV 3500/4500

Take your pick..

From a price vs perfomance perspective, the Nasci will be my first choice

Hi Preno,

A 4500 model will be to big and heavy in my opinion.
I personally have a Amia zero xh 11ft paired with a BG 4000 and it is perfect. Even a 3000 size will do the job perfectly.

The 4500 will be too big. It will force you into using thicker braid than what you want to use for local spinning conditions.
