In Reply to: Daiwa GC80 closed face reel - Update posted by Kerry Grissett on December 28, 2001 at 22:25:38:
For those of you who don't already know, I fish much more than the average fisherman. A friend told me that he thinks I put 10 years of usage on a reel in one year compared to the "average" fisherman. I think he meant weekend or "fair weather" fishermen. In any case, I do fish more than most and put a LOT of pressure on my equipment. 8 months may seem like a short time and it isn't as long as I would like, but that is the longest I have had a working closed face spinning reel ever. During this time I was still limping along with the last remaining AbuMatic 1275 which I retired when I bought the new reels.
Conclusion: They don't make a really durable quality closed face spinning reel at any price. The Daiwa GC series each run about $60.
Good luck and good fishin'
