Quite honestly, Daiwa have done something with their reels over the past 2 years. They're way better in the sub-£100 bracket than they used to be. The Ninja's are sooooo smooth for the money! This 2500 size is the perfect all-rounder, suited to rods up to around 8'6" or maybe a light 9 footer in salt or fresh water. The 3000 is perfect for your standard 9 foot bass rods or shorter rods from the boat where you want a bit more clobber.
Quite simply the Ninja reels are staggeringly good. Their highly noticeable look is of course backed up with an array of features and typical Daiwa performance. Their graphite body combined with Air Rotor not only starts the design off with a weight saving benefit but the enhanced rotor shape adds to the reels performance under load. Front drag orientated they are perfect for use even with braid. Winding smoothness is enhanced with 4BB and Infinite Anti-Reverse. Finally rounding off the value for money there is a spare spool supplied.
