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.

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.
