I’m not trying to fan the fires of a Shimano vs Daiwa argument here, but after taking apart this reel, the paltry number of parts on this compared to a Shimano Stella, makes this Certate Hyper look simple indeed. Hahaha!
However, I’m the type that prefer having a simple, well engineered reel to one with a host of complicated little parts which perform the same function as would a simple one.
So my hats off to Daiwa engineers. They have built a product with genuine concern for the user. By simplifying, they have effectively empowered the user to be able to maintain the reel themselves at home. Ancient Chinese man saying: A reel well maintained at home last longer than a reel sent to factory for maintenance when it not working anymore.
