“long term review”

Written on: 25/10/2013 by dusty1808 (1 review written)

I have had my Evo 5500 for three years and unfortunately they were poor straight out of the box. Both bail springs have been replaced, now bail arm doesn't engauge at all. The body is not sealed at all and allows the ingress of water into the gear and bearing housing. Because of this the main shaft roller bearing and runner are pitted with rust and the reel feels terrible. They need regular maintenance, cleaning, grease and oil if not they won't last a season. The most annoying attribute is… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/10/2010

I bought 3 of these reels at a gamble having used shimano bait runners for a long time. I can honestly say i will never go back. They are very smooth with great line lay, great for casting, and well balanced they have a great cranking handle and a fast retrieval. I really cant find any fault with these reels. As for the bait runner argument, i can give you a good tip. Remove the drag knob that holds the spool on, turn it up side down. You will notice 2 small screws, remove these and pop off the… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/07/2010

Recently bought these switching from baitrunners as I wanted a more substanial reel and one capable of casting a good distance fairly easily. These meet my requirements with solid build quality, excellent for casting, powerful winching with fast retrieve and looks good (I appreciate looks aren't everything). Only down side I have found is with the line clip which lets the overall rating down, however I was aware of this problem prior to buying them and it can soon be rectified. For the money… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/04/2009

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… Read Full Review

I really like the Daiwa Emcast Evo 5000 Carp Reel. Its great value for money and as far as carp reels go the Evo 500 is up there with the best. Its light but can still pull in a decent weight. Its really smooth for both casting and reeling in… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/03/2008

I have been using the Daiwa Emcast Evo 5000 Reel for a while and I think its great. The reel is so smooth and can handle a lot of weight. Its good value for money and you really do get what you pay for. I have to say that if I could afford to spend more money I would and I would have brought a better one. So this is by no means the best reel "ever" but its good the he price… Read Full Review
