Has anyone used the New Daiwa BG reel? If so, is it possible to tell me where it is Manufactured?

Hello Bobby,

I have several of them in sizes 3000,4000 and 5000. All of them are made in China.

My limited experience with the BG has been quite good, catching barra and MJs without any issue with the 4000 size.

Slight niggles are that the bail wire is quite thin and there seems to be little audible warning when a
fish pulls against the drag (when trolling from the boat).

Great value for the price.

Regards,
Kingfish

See below picture for the BG 5000, showing "Made in China."

Same for all other sizes I have with me.

Did you visit your friends in New Zealand? If so, any fishing done?

hello

Daiwa bg reel is a very good reel for the price, but just buy the export version as it has better construction internally, keep away from the JDM version.
you can read all about it on www.alanhawak.com

Thanks

Agree fully about the JDM (Japanese Domestic Market) version.

Thanks Kingfish, BG not for me I have allergic reactions to Chinese Made reels. I almost bought the Van Stall VR reel until I broke into a rash when I heard it was made in China too :) :)..Well have finally decided to get myself the Saltiga Dogfight.

I did not go to New Zealand, instead went to India had a family wedding to attend and also finally did a good week long fishing trip after years, did not get much, just some MJ and small GT but had fun, it was nice to finally do some serious angling again.

I will go to the US later this year to Houston my brother who used to fish a lot too is getting us on to some Tarpon fishing, its mid season end June so look forward to that, my daughters are very excited and have started working out (weight training) already for this trip. New Zealand may have to wait till next year and I will go to India again next month end...I have to balance this all with work or I will end up broke
