    Well I have been saving up my shekels for a while to buy a DAIWA BG 2500 and 8000 well not any more since the last time I looked about 3 weeks the 2500 has gone up $40 And the 8000 $60 ...... now those price gouges you could understand on a $300+ reel but on average the price of a BG used to go for $170 odd ......

    Cheers TAC

    Tac, Anglers Warehouse have the 2500 for $189, but I guess if you add postage then you are looking at $200 plus.

    A 2500 reel that I bought a few months back is the Shimano Nasci and it's a solid bit of gear, 9kgs of drag compared to the BG's 4kg makes it a tough workhorse. AW have them going for $119 at the moment, reduced from $180.

    When I was looking at them a couple of months ago there was a lot of the H models EG.Daiwa 2500H BG. most would probably know that they were for the Japanese market and inferior quality. I now notice they are no longer being sold.

    I thought stuff made for the Japanese market would be better quality and could be made in Japan? Doesn't matter anyway.

    Tac...you love the BG reels...just wait until they come on sale.
    cheers
