I don't think you can beat daiwa rods and reels
Absolute joy to use
Their after sales service is second to none

Top company, pretty assured of quality.
All my multiplier reels have always been Daiwa. Some of their Amorphous Whisker Beach Casters and Uptide Rods are still amongst the best around 20 years later and their premium waterproofs are as good as you can get that are designed specifically for the fishing market.
A couple of small things that will prevent a 5 star review. The 'finishing touches' to certain reels over the years. The Silver Saltists have the worst paint job ever on any reel - scratched the second you look at it. The 7HT range, brilliant, could have been the best in class (or even further ahead of the field) if they'd have just added the pinion support in the factory years ago. Never even corrected this for the Mag or ST Mag. Also, they really should do the hyper speed lever drags with a magnofuge built in.
Sounds like a rant, but they are tiny tiny things in the grand scheme. I'll still always buy Daiwa multis over anything else.
