The verdict on the Daiwa BG, after hours of research:

Reasons to buy this reel

  • Extremely smooth spinning reel which is lighter than it looks
  • Cranks high resistance lures with ease
  • Workhorse in both saltwater and freshwater
  • Impressive drag with a spool that can hold plenty of line
  • Heavier duty spinning reel which can handle literally all kinds of species
  • This reel has a crazy amount of positive reviews
  • Budget friendly option

Reasons not to buy this reel

  • Only available in sizes from 2500 - heavy duty reel which may not be necessary for certain forms of fishing
  • Gear ratio is slightly slower
  • Anglers may prefer a small reel especially when fishing lighter spinning rods for finesse applications

Bottom line

The Daiwa BG is a great option if you're looking for a heavier duty spinning reel that can be used to catch all kinds of fish in any waters. This reel is immensely smooth, and is extremely durable.

However, there is no smaller size than the 2500. Anglers may want a 1000 or 2000 when fishing lighter applications for greater balance.
