What customers say about "Key Specs"
Daiwa BG 3000 (0001-4132) Spinning Reels

  • his is an outstanding reel, it has a rubber gasket around the spool to make it easy to spool braid without any hassle or need for a monofilament backing.
  • This is an awesome, high quality reel. 3000 size is perfect for bass, inshore fishing, and even salmon
  • Fantastic reel, oversized spool and super smooth! Really love the machined aluminum.
  • Loaded it with 30 lb test Suffix 832 Advanced braid and just used it for 4 weeks in Florida. Very impressed with this reel.
Shimano NASCI (NAS4000XGFB) Compact Spinning Reel
  • The reel is very smooth with a feel of tightness found in reels that cost twice as much.
  • I have it spooled with 17 lb test nano fil on a Med / Hvy spinning rod rated for 1/4 - 1 oz lures. Casts amazingly well and I had zero line issue.
  • So far these reels seem to be a great bang for the buck. Smooth and a nice drag.
  • Super smooth drag that handles big reds and snook flawlessly. Paired it with a Gander Mountain Tournmanet mediam-heavy rod.

What customers say about "Drag"
Daiwa BG 3000 (0001-4132) Spinning Reels
  • The same, identical to the number Japanese bearings that the Saltiga and Shimano Stella reels use. Same top tier Daiwa lubricant is also used.
  • It's built like a tank and it is easy to adjust the drag.
  • Smooth. Great drag. Casts well. Braid ready. Looks great. Hard to beat at this price point.
  • Very smooth,very adjustable drag. Mostly used for light saltwater kayaking with 15lb braid.
  • The drag is buttery smooth and it can hammer down when needed to.
Shimano NASCI (NAS4000XGFB) Compact Spinning Reel
  • What I liked most is the smooth action, super strong and smooth drag! This reel is light and compact but able to handle larger fish in saltwater.
  • As always, Shimano reels are great! Very smooth and balanced.
  • Light, responsive. I really like the way the drag is easy to set.
  • There is a serious problem with the geometry of this this reel.

What customers say about "Features"
Daiwa BG 3000 (0001-4132) Spinning Reels
  • They have many high end features found on reels five times their price, such as NMB bearings, anodized coating, and a silky smooth drag system.
  • They are sealed very well too and hold up in the salt.
  • The BG 3000 is a small reel, the action is very good and smooth and with practice you can make it reel without even using the handle.
  • I like it. Smooth, durable and has a good seal all around. Paired with 15lb suffix camo braid.
  • Sizing is larger with line capacity when compared to Shimano Stradic or Symetre. Slower gear ratios. Better feel than Penn Battle 2.
Shimano NASCI (NAS4000XGFB) Compact Spinning Reel
  • The reel was used every day in saltwater for a week and it cleaned up very well ,so I guess the protective coating advertised works.
  • Tip of reel crank handle is texturized, thick, flat, T-shaped with rounded top. This allows for a very strong grip when placed in the palm between ring finger & middle finger.
  • Great value for money, strong enough drag to fish inshore and offshore. Smooth operation, and great a fast line retrieve.
  • All I use is Shimano spinning reels and this one is just as good as my stradic for less. I would recommend to anyone, very smooth drag and action.
  • Anti-reverse feature is permanent with no switch to manually reverse retrieve.
