DAIWA Reels - Products We Are Proud Of
I have said it time and again. One of the hardest things to see is and anglers trophy fish of a lifetime lost due to a failed fishing reel. One of MY failed fishing reels. Confidence is super important to us as fishing guides to know that reel has the best chance of surviving the battle than any other. Anglers often ask us why we chose DAIWA. Our answer is a simple "because they are the best" but a look further into it we discover why.
For about 4 years here at Dream Catcher Charters we used fishing reels from 4 different BIG NAME manufacturers including DAIWA. We made sure we chose and used reels from all price points to get an even feel across the board and make a good decision. We did this to stabilize the product line we used with our customers. We felt it was important to use only one brand of reels keeping our fishing charters uniform.

Daiwa Saltiga Spinning Reels
Writen By Capt. Steven Lamp
It did not take long to see who the front runner was for this selection. While all fishing reels will fail eventually the DAIWA reels across the board out lasted all the others we were comparing them to by two duty cycles under our normal use. In easy terms they lasted twice as long before an issue showed up. Interesting note, we still have some of those original reels still in service today catching fish.
DAIWA in no way is the most affordable route for us as a fishing charter company to go when outfitting 8 boats and keeping all the fishing reels in "like new" condition every day. Unless you look at longevity and realize that it may cost a little more but if it lasts longer then its worth it.
We stand behind our DAIWA reels - every day and we know you will love them too.
For our backcountry fishing and flats fishing we use the Procyon, Ballistic, Isla and Certate spinning reels. For our offshore heavy lifting and inshore tarpon fishing we have found that the Saltist spinning reel is a battle axe and the Saltiga spinning reels are super smooth. For conventional reels the Saltiga and Saltist lines are the best. Our Shark fishing is done mostly with the Saltist HS 40 lever drag reel and in two years (lots of big sharks) not one failure. We also have bait casters from DAIWA we love the Zillion series, super light, easy to cast and hold up against the salt elements really well.
We don't have to think about the nightmare described above. We maintain our gear to very high standards and make sure each and every angler has perfect equipment to enjoy every time they fish with us. We are lucky to be a part of the DAIWA family and really love using their product..
