Have been monitoring the price of BG reels and just saw this today. These are not sold by amazon but the seller seems reputable enough and has been around for a long time.

BG2500 $66 [amazon.com]
BG3000 $65 [amazon.com]
BG4000 $67 [amazon.com]

These reels are much more smooth than Penn Battle II and lighter, though the bail wire is thinner and the ball bearings are not sealed as is the case for Battle II.

Amazon has fake sellers like this all the time. The account is probably an established account that was sold to a scammer. If the product isn't fulfilled using Prime shipping and the price is very low it's very likely the sale isn't legit.

Correct. I almost fell for the deal but noticed it was a 3rd party seller. China is producing fake daiwa reels so this isn't worth the risk.

It's not the product that's fake. It's that the fake seller takes the money and you don't get your product. I've read that in some cases Amazon just eats the loss and gives you your money back.

I'm actually worried about counterfeit parts from China. They're doing it for all sorts of tech, I wouldn't be surprised if they reverse engineered high priced fishing reels to build them cheap. An issue we dealt with regularly at my last company

I haven't seen any counterfeits so far. You can always tell when it's just a fake seller trying to steal money when they have a ton of products from a wide variety of categories. They always undercut the Amazon price by a lot and aren't FBA items.
