Does anyone have any experience with Daiwa Black/Gold reels? Are they a good option? Or are other comparably priced reels better?(sturdy)Thanks!

Been around forever, tough as nails. The 706 of the Daiwa line.

I've never fished one though so I don't know how braid friendly they are.

Daiwa ss1600 or 2600ss are both workhorse's for the $100 range if lure fishing up to 2oz is what your looking to use it for. I have own one for several years of service and it hasn't failed. Good luck in you hunt.

I love those reels, bought my first 1600 19 years ago when they first came out. An extra spool cost $80 then That reel has caught hundreds and hundreds of fish and finally passed beyond my ability to service it 2 years ago. Sent it to Daiwa and for $17 got it back good as new and ready for a few hundred more.

The only problem is that they're small, best suited for schoolies and back bay stuff (the buttery smooth drag makes them especially good for jigging weakies in the bay). The Black Gold series goes from small sizes to "What the hell do you do with that monster?" size.
If you're looking for a reel to match a 10' or 11' rod the SS series is going to be too small
