The legendary Shimano Sahara Spinning Reel has been completely redesigned for 2022 and improved in so many areas. Smoother, lighter and stronger than before, the 3000 and 4000 sizes are now in stock.

The New Daiwa BG MQ Models Have Arrived!

Limited stock of these new reels are now available, don’t panic they are not a replacement for the legendary Daiwa BG, but rather a stronger, better sealed refined upgraded version. The monocoq design eliminates sideplate screws and a good seal is now also on the main shaft. Improved max drag and line capacity as well as a main gear that is 20% thicker make this a tempting option, they are smooth and strong! Please note sizing is now changed to match industry standards, such as Shimano. The New 10000BG MQ size and feel wise is similar to the BG5000, but the MQ does hold a bit more line.

Time will tell if these reels are as impressively good value as the Daiwa BG,

but initial impressions and worldwide reviews seem very good. 

Pricing is currently below R 4000, but stock availability is fairly limited at this stage.
