I got a Dawia emcast sport on sale last week for $129. Built like a tank, looks cool, has 33lb of drag and holds 320 yards of 25lb line and a long cast spool. It is not the smoothest reel in the world. Feels a bit ‘sluggish’ to wind but it is really just a work horse.
The sale has now ended, and they are back to their old price of $175.00
