bought the Daiwa Emcast Evo 5000 Big Pit Carp Reel for spodding 5000 version evo, looks great, well balanced for price £50, reels in quickly and casts like a dream, only bad thing i found was temporarily clipping the mono backing line i noticed the clip cut the line slightly. Did the same to the braid and fraid it. Solved by tieing a couple of loops of braid around clip neatly for some cushioning 1st. No problem now. would still buy another.
