Thank you, most shops have either the 35 or the 45. I've found a shop that has both that I'm near for half term.

Cheers.

No, it's not overkill at all. Get yourself to a shop and look at some, side by side.

Evening all.

Anyone had experience of both the 35 and the 45. Is the 45 overkill for upto 100 yards with 3lb TC rods?

From several posts below, it sounds like the 35 is a better reel - not sure how that can be the case, I assumed it was more horses for courses in terms of size required.

Many thanks.

Not the emblems, but had a lot of daiwa reels and always just use them as they come out the box. Nice little christmas present that

hi guys, the mrs clocked me looking at these reels and bought me a set for xmas. I know each reel can be different but when spooling up have you had to add or take off any washers for a completely flat linelay.

Hi ALL

Would like to say a big thank you to all who.. replied to my question manual bail arm, been InTouch with Daiwa, they confirmed the Daiwa Emblem 45 SCW QD Reels do have a manual bail arm.
I would take that goes with there higher brand reels also..

Great news

Cheers

There are some on ebay, I think you can get them from daiwa too. I just Swapped them from my entohs and emblem spod, it actually improved both sets of reels in the process imo.

I didn't have any dedicated drag oil so I just used the sewing machine oil I use for centrepins

Thanks to both of you that's very helpful, where can I buy felt washers ? I'm also assuming you oil them if new ?

I Swapped 2 of the rough red washers for felt ones, as woody said, it's easy to do and test until you find the combination that works for you.
At one point I had (non qd) entoh caps and had Swapped all the red washers for felt. That gave me the drag I'm used to but I decided to speed it up quite a bit. It's a fair bit slower than standard tho

If you remove all 5 washers and just replace with 2 felt then there will be a lot of float between the top washer and retaining clip.
i would recommend keeping all 10 washers in the spool if you want to alter speed to your preference then swap out your required number of non compression for felt washer that could be 1,2,3 etc its easy to do and check by trial and error

Did you remove all five original washers and replace with two felt washers or just the top two original washers ?

Thanks Duggs. No hurry. I usually get to France Twice a year, bought the emblems for those trips. They are currently in the loft on my rods but not spooled up. I will explore the washer option.
I also wonder why Daiwa supplied a massive capacity spare spool on a reel marketed as a casting reel. I know all bases have to be covered but I will need 1000m of backing line lol. I do like the feel of the reels and at 615gm they are considerably lighter than the Ultegras.
Stay Safe

It'll compress under pressure whereas the standard one won't. The caps from a lot of other daiwa reels fit them if you're in a hurry to change it, alternatively you can swap the spool washers for felt ones to tune it to taste

Just had a look on the QDM drag knob on the German site, very interesting. I have been using Shimano ultegra 12000XTA's for about 14 years. So it was time for a change.

Think more range on the drag will be an improvement, although I have not used my new emblems yet.

Do we know what the physical difference is between the QD & QDM ?

cheers

Cheers mate. Think i have always just done it manually, after feeling the lead down, without even thinking about it. Just read the question and realised i actually didnt know one way or the other

Tournys have the little roller on the stem which kicks the bail over if you wish Heff, can't say I've ever used that function on them though as its clunky and a bit brutal at best

I Swapped some washers among my reels to tune the clutch to taste, I currently have two felt washers in my spools and the emblem washers in different reels.

Thats interesting. Looks like three quarters of a turn maybe? That's much more sensible than the quarter turn they have. I will be getting them for my 45's.

I genuinely didnt know the answer to this. Had to emcheck my basias when using them. Must be so used to doing it, i just do it automatically. But all 3 of my basias require manual closing. Not sure on the tournaments though as i havent had a chance to test them

just a note for those that dont like the QD they now do a QDM (medium) drag knob for the emblem and crosscast 45
dont know how much or when it will appear on the slow-on-the-uptake UK site but its on the german one

I wouldnít buy a carp reel with an auto closing bail arm anymore. Makes sense on a spinning reel when you often want to take up the slack quickly, but not needed when youíre trapping and sinking line IMO.

Iíve got the newer shimano lc and none of them close while winding, they are all manual bail arms. They donít have the automatic bail arm closer on them anymore so when you go for a cast it donít close on itself

Thats an old way of doing things. Closing the bail manually is more positive and puts less stress on the reel. Don't think I've actually seen anyone close a bail this way in the last 15 years

The bale arm should close when winding. Iíve some Shimano LCís and one of those fails to close when winding.
With people talking of manual closing there must be a lot of reels along there with the same problem.

I use same reels and cm 90 in 15lb which I've found absolutely bomb proof, I've extracted fish from weed beds, snags and Norfolk reeds, every time I've inspected the line it's still been perfect and no need to strip any off unlike other lines I've used.

All good. Manual bail arms on those reels. Stops any accidental closures on casts.

It isn't meant to, the bail arms are manual buddy.
So sounds like your reels are all good.

Hi All

HELP please...

Brought a new set of Daiwa Emblem 45 SCW QD Reels of e-bay New.. not seen these reel before but the reports are good, had a look at them this afternoon.. look great, just one thing when the bail arm is open to cast, when I turn the handle to wined in the arm does not close, flip back to pick the line up just makes a clicking noise is this right... OR time to contact the seller..

At this moment not happy if my reels are broken..

Thank you for any advice..
