Daiwa Seagate

Heavy duty crunching at sea is mere bread and butter to any Seagate.
In your hand you just know that the solid and precise mechanism is built for power, durability and the harsh, unforgiving world of saltwater.

The range spans from a 3500 model that is perfect for bass work and with the Quick Drag function it can operate between ‘free spool’ and ‘engaged’ with less than one turn on the knob. An asset when it comes to freelining and if you are expecting savage takes.

The 4500 will again fit the bill with light to medium shore work or lighter line classes when boat fishing. Whilst the 5000 and 6000, which are the same size and simply differ in their line capacities will handle hitting bigger distances, rough ground and boat work.

Their locked down side plate houses a sealed DIGIGEAR system and the Titanium Nitrided roller is well suited to braid main lines. Each of the bigger models features a waterproof drag and your winding grip is made easier thanks to the round EVA handle knob.

FEATURES
• Oversize Titanium Nitrided BB line roller
• Aluminium alloy body & body cover
• Forged aluminium ABS spool
• AirBail
• Waterproof drag
• CastLock and manual bail closure on 5000 & 6000
• Anodised aluminium handle
• Round EVA handle knob
• CRBB
• DIGIGEAR
• Twist Buster
• Full time Anti-Reverse
• Infinite Anti-Reverse on 3500 model only

Model No Ratio Weight B/B Line Capacity
SGT3500-QD 5.3:1 14.0 5+2CRBB 220m-10lbs
SGT4500E 4.7:1 21.2 7+1CRBB 270m-15lbs
SGT5000E 4.7:1 29.1 7+1CRBB 280m-18lbs
SGT6000E 4.7:1 28.8 7+1CRBB 230m-25lbs

This is a very nice mid range reel, they also have a 'light' series. Little Crist is using one! ;)

Also, you must be a fan of Stargate movie, huh? :lol:

Hey Oinkie, very good work. Maybe should ask Peace to set another directory (I dunno what's the actual term.) on this forum, so that we all can post similar stuffs like this (With drag, features, appearance and ETC...) and everyone can get a clearer picture. :)

Heh, that's a lot of work considering the number of brands and models of reels out in the market. And we have to careful about using images and descriptions that are copyrighted. But it's a lovely idea, I would love to see a list like that when I'm shopping for a reel. :D

Maybe we can copy and paste the specs from the OEM? They should be happy that we are discussing about their products, lol.

Point noted, let me see if I can work it out. Otherwise we can simply compile a list here on the forum first.
