Product details
Official manufacturer description

The newly redesigned Seaborg Megatwin is the ultimate battle machine. It is powerful, quiet and smooth and has an output of roughly 1.3 times greater than previous motors. The new aluminum composite housing is designed to maximize the release of heat and keep the Mega Torque Motor cool, ensuring that power is available all the time.

The new Seaborg allows the user to quickly switch between mega-power mode and mega-speed mode by merely touching a button. During retrieve, the new speed function switches smoothly and efficiently and allows the angler the ability to alternate to the best speed, depending on the situation. This reel utilizes ATD (Automatic Drag System) system that gives the angler the power and poise to take control of whatever crosses their path. ATD is a combination of seven large carbon washers and enhanced drag grease. The new grease has a low viscosity at rest, yet becomes more viscous right after drag start up, reducing initial drag start-up inertia. When combined the structural changes to the ATD Drag washers, the result is a smoother, stronger drag from initial hook up, allowing the angler to concentrate on the fight.

The Daiwa Seaborg is easily the best electric reel on the market. It is used for deep drop fishing in deep waters for reef species, like snapper, grouper, and tilefish. It has a high and low gear setting. It has an extremely powerful motor, and some anglers use this reel for fighting large pelagic species like bluefin tuna. Despite being a very heavy and bulky reel, it has the added advantage or retrieving 1000 yards of line with the push of a button, rather than spending the day cranking and cranking.

Pros
  • -The best deep sea offshore electric reel on the market
  • -Deep dropping for reef species like snapper, grouper, and tilefish
  • -Provides the retrieve cranking power to get line back up
Cons
  • -It's a very expensive reel and requires a marine power supply
  • -It is an extremely heavy and bulky reel
  • -These reels are not the most versatile as they are generally just used for deep dropping techniques
