Sometimes, something very special comes along. This is one of them. If we told you that you could buy an excellent spinning reel for under £100 that'll keep you happy and by that wonderful water, would you believe us? Well, we know it's true and we're still pinching ourselves!
This next generation model from our favourites over at Daiwa is better than ever. Ideal for ultralight freshwater just as much as heavier big game and saltwater fishing, it features a genuinely beautiful black anodized aluminum housing in with stylish yellow-gold highlights.
Featuring a screw-in handle, air rotor and dynamic-cut ABS spool, this makes an exceptionally capable popping reel without breaking the bank.
Our opinion: Every time we pick this one up we're blown away by how smooth the reel is. It's powerful, right or left handed and is right up at the top of our list for a budget 6500 reel. If you're careful with money and want as much as you can for as little cost as possible, you shouldn't look anywhere else than this exact product right here. It's phenomenal.
