Purchased 3 Daiwa reels at a garage sale last week. Have been able to find little information on them. Two are 600M series and the other is a 6MN series reel. Appear to be in excellent shape with very little wear and tear. Drags work perfectly. Anyone able to give me any information/background on their experiences with these reels? Was thinking of springers/silvers, appear to be a little light for URB's. :cheers:

They are great reels, but they take for ever to "break in!!" I have fished with it 12 times and still have not had a bite! It could just be me??? So finally on the thirteenth trip, I switch reels and used my Calcutta... Low and behold, I hook a salmon. Other than being skunked, the reel is easy to cast and the drag seems smooth, I think???

The older Millionaires were basically copies of the Ambassadeur reels, and were OK in quality. The CVZ series came out about 5 years ago and they are the Rolls Royce of baitcasters. 6 BBs, 7-disc Teflon drags, etc. My CVZ-253 is my best reel by far, superior in every way to my Calcuttas.

There are Millionaires, and then there are Millionaires. Totally different quality and performance.
