Default Daiwa SEALINE SL20SH

Still shopping for a reel to match with my new St. Croix Tidemaster.
Any thoughts on the Daiwa SEALINE SL20SH? I saw this at the show last weekend and it felt really nice. Specs seem to be right on and everyone was raving about what a great caster it was. Priced reasonably at $90.

I have the slosh 30, and have been looking at the 20's also. For my money, out of the box, no up-grading, putting magnets in etc,,,(these things help, but it is not my intent to minimize them) I think the slosh with the brakes supplied etc, out of the box is one of the best reels you can get. I have mag 525 and abu's some have been juiced up etc, but out of the box I will take the slosh you can't go wrong for the money... cinch

great casting dependable reels with great drags.. just don't forget to put the brakes in..

the only issue with the daiwas is that the gearbox sits at an angle that is difficult for some to hold.. if it felt good in your hands, you aren't one of them.. i am... wish they would change that.. if they did, i'd have a bunch of them.. my hands are very small and i cant' hold the reels well when casting.

Thanks for the reply! I must be dense this morning, not sure what you meant by "put the brakes in", can you explain that?

They let me put one on a rod to see how it felt to me, and it felt OK. I've got big hands, maybe that's the difference. I have a big Okuma trolling reel with a similar gear box position, so maybe I'm just used to it .
