The Daiwa BG Black Gold Spinning Reels get their inspiration from the classic and iconic Black Gold series of Heavy Action Saltwater Spinning Reels. But the new BG series is full of new and innovative features such as the Over-sized Digigear and the Dynamic Cut Aluminum ABS Spool. The Black Anodized Machined Aluminum Housing(“Hard Bodyz” Body & Side Cover), Machined Aluminum Screw-In-Handle and the Carbon ATD Waterproof Drag System make a reel that is ready for any catch the ocean can throw at you.
“Hard Bodyz” Body & Side Cover
Daiwa BG is equipped with a machined aluminum body and body cover providing strength and internal part stability. Daiwa has Black Anodized the body and body cover to increase strength in the form of corrosion and scratch resistance. Anodization allows for better adhesion to the aluminum and will not chip or peal like a painted surface, extending the brilliant look of the BG spinning series.
With the BG spinning series Daiwa integrated the largest drive gear in the history of Daiwa spinning reels. Oversized gearing increases gear-tooth contact points, this provides smoother and extended gear life as well as more power and increased torque.
Solid machined handle plus the Screw-in-Handle design provides zero movement or play between the main gear and handle arm and provides nothing but power to the Digigear system. This lack of movement offers the angler both confidence and control when rotating the handle.
The Air Rotor with its unique shape reduces unnecessary weight up to 15% over ordinary rotor designs. The design also distributes stress more evenly throughout the rotor for maximum strength.
The ABS spool’s maximized core diameter and reversed taper mean 100% useable line. Now you can fill it with line right up to the edge of the spool lip without fear of tangles and no more “dead” line buried in a deep core. ABS causes less casting friction for longer and easier casting.
Other impressive features are :
