The Daiwa BG Spinning Reel, from SCHEELS, offers a big value at a small price. This new generation of the popular line of BG spinning reels offers lots of innovations and features.
The oversized Digigear system gears provide maximum torque and cranking power, while the waterproof spool lets water drain through, solving a common problem with braided line. Top-tier ball bearings and an outstanding drag system, provides a smooth and efficient design. The anodized aluminum body will provide reliable durability in saltwater or freshwater. It can hold 280 yards of 20-pound monofilament or 310 yards of 65-pound J-braid.

Most reviewers recommend the Daiwa BG as the best spinning reel on the market in its class and noted it incorporates features typically found only in reels that are two or three times as expensive. A writer at SaltedAngler.com called it "my favorite saltwater reel under $100 for inshore fishing," while TheWireCutter.com described it as "more versatile and durable than anything else in the same price range."
