I order 2 of these. These are top rated and suitable for fresh and salt water. I grabbed them at 75 and though they'd never stay at this price as shipping was delayed.

How does one determine which size reel to buy? Need to buy for a gift but know absolutely nothing on this topic.
All I know is the person fishes from ocean shoreline and rocks.
He is older so lighter in weight would be better I assume.

The larger reels can both handle larger (ocean-residing) fish as well as a larger quantity of durable line that necessitates this, esp around rocks and such. The smaller reels probably wouldn't be suitable.

The 3rd or 4th Amazon review for this reel has more details about this. I'd suggest you look there.

Damn, I wish I wouldn't have missed out on this. Looking to purchase two of these. Amazon back up to $95. FishUSA is at $85. If anyone knows of where I can get these in the $75 price range like they were before, i'd be interested in saving a few bucks on two of them.

You can get these for $75 or lower BRAND NEW on Ebay. Been that price forever too.

Even better, wait for $15 off 75 coupon on ebay. Got mine for around $60.

These Daiwa BG reels on average have bigger spools than the Shimano equivalent size. They are great reels albeit a little on the heavier side. At $75 they are a steal.
