Daiwa Exceler Oceano 4500

IMG_8227Finished3

I am most impressed with this reel, I have to say when I first picked it up from Kingfisher I had my doubts and really didn’t think that this reel could handle being out on a Kayak , but WOW it has proven me wrong not only can it handle the bashing it takes on a kayak but it can handle big fish too!!  The HardBodyz body construction on this reel has made it one tough cookie and i have already landed Snoek, Couta, Bonnie’s and Tuna on its 9kg waterproof drag system. It’s a great affordable medium weight coffee grinder from Daiwa and one reel that will always be in my hatch.

Watch the Fish i have caught on this great reel –

The Reel Review: Daiwa Saltist BG 40 H

IMG_8031Finished3

This reel has to be hands down The Freak’s favorite multiplier reel from Daiwa,its anodized finish makes it strong, rugged and protects it from corrosion perfect for out on a kayak. The 40 H is the perfect size for using on your Fishing ski and makes it easy to take in and out of your hatch, especially  when its full of fish. Its has an ultra smooth drag system  which is ideal for tightening up on monster tuna when fishing live bait. All in all this is a great reel to use out on the water and the Black and Gold finish just makes it look amazing. You will remember in Episode 04 Wez landed a nice couta on this reel and raved about the smooth drag. We here at Fishing Freaks love this reel and can’t wait to put it to the REEL test with some Autumn Crocs.
