    Default New Reel - Daiwa Phantom Match PH2553-3iMA

    Just getting myself back into doing a spot of coarse fishing i realised i needed a small reel for some stick float/light waggler fishing, i didn't want to break the bank and picked one of these up brand new + 2 spare spools for £15. Anyone know how well these perform??

    Cheers

    Guy

    They're getting on in age and were discontinued soem time ago, I believe.

    I bought a 7iMa, or whatever they're called, for my grandson and liked it so much I got another for myself. They work well and I can't imagine much that a 7 bearing model will offer over a 3 bearing model, that's all the difference is.

    Just use it and I hope you catch well on it! Good luck

    It's a bargain mate, I think they were over £35 when first introduced.

    Might also want to take a look at the Drennan Red series reels - all the features of some very expensive kit for £20

    Took me awhile to read all the comments, but I really love the article. It proved to be very useful to me and I am sure to all the commenters here! It's always nice when you can not only be informed, but also entertained! I'm sure you had fun writing this article. Comfortably, the article is really the sweetest on this precious topic.
