The best value sub-£100 reel ever? The Ninja is a standout range that manages to be super smooth, light and powerful for what is really not a lot of money.

The 2000 is the perfect little LRF or dropshot reel. The 2500 comes in useful for short, light rods up to about 8’ long. The 3000 is just slightly larger than the “25” and again best for light rods up to maybe 8’6” maximum, with light actions. The 4000 is a lovely size for light bass rods - up to 9’6” with ratings to maybe 35g. The 5000 is the equivalent old Daiwa 3000 (non-LT models) and suits more powerful rods up to about 9’6” or even 10’ on the right rod.

Ben's Recommendations
Buy if... You want the smoothest, lightest reel available for less than £70. Puts many £100 models to shame.
