Default Thoughts.....Daiwa Sealine x20SHA

Hey everyone,

Does anybody have any experience with this reel....particularly from the surf?

I'm a big Shimano guy but I won this reel in a contest. I've fished it a few times now and I can throw 3 oz of lead a mile with it. I have it spooled up with 50 pound power pro and it has performed well on some much bigger fish (California bat rays to be exact-in the 40 pound range).

I plan on using it for bucktailing and would like to put it on a 10-11 foot rod. In the surf I will most likely strip the 50 pound braid and go with 30-40 pound.

Specs:

Gear ratio: 6.1:1
Weight: 15.5oz
Capacity: 20lb 210yards


Do you guys see this as a practical reel for what i plan on using it for? If not I can always use it as a boat rod.

Also, i did a search on the sealine and only came up with posts about the sealine surf rod...as much as I love Shimano i may look into these rods if they are made to match the sealine reel.

Thanks,

Brian

I've never used one, but it looks like a nice reel. Definitely a good size for striper fishing. I'd match it up with a nice 10 or 11 foot medium action casting rod.

Thanks Jake. I was worried about the size as I've heard of guys using the 30sha for stripers but never the 20. I suppose those guys are using heavier rods anyways or at least are bait and wait guys slinging a lot of lead.

Its not the greatest reel in the world but it has a pretty simple design, casts really good, and is able to handle the sand/salt for the most part.

hey brian,

Ive had one for two years now, and i love it. hauled in many large stripers with it and no problems. It is very smooth and line flows right of the spool. i would recommend it.

Thanks guys...this is good news. Now I can focus on buying my first "real" striper rod, now that I know my reel will get the job done.
