It's a Diawa, A+!!
I have a few Diawa reels now, and all are excellent pieces of kit. This reel is no exception. I use it for pike fishing, and for Barbel on the river. It is a bit heavy compared to a similar sized shimano baitrunner, but not overly so. I can recommend these to anyone who needs a good strong mid sized baitrunner, that won't let you down or break the bank.
