Daiwa 7ht Millionaire Turbo

Postby originalsin » Thu Nov 29, 2012 10:33 pm

Im looking at one of these reels thats going fairly cheap, has anyone ever used one and are they any use? I currently have a 7ht mag so am wondering how much difference there is between the two... Also, ive seen a few original 7ht's which have been modified to have mag's fitted, anyone any experience with these?

I hear they are a good reel but no brakes in them, very fast real that not everyone will get on with.

All 7ht's have brakes fitted as standard, the standard black and red turbo work on brake blocks the blue mag works on magnets. all are good solid reliable fishing reels, but the red and black ones have slower retrieve rates than the blue one.

In relation to mag conversion kits, how do these compare to factory fitted mags? Like, how will the 7ht turbo with a mag conversion kit compare to the factory 7ht mag?

it will make it easier for you to control and more forgiving than the standard model BUT if you set them up correctly with right line and corect spool float they are a joy to use and control as standard.

I suppose if I do get that reel with the conversion on it already if I want to remove the modified part it should, in theory, just be a case of swapping the modified end plate with a standard end plate? Or would that be too easy :?

its my favourite reel to use but only over clean ground its perfect for the likes of the wexford beaches. ive birdied a hand full of times but once you find the right setting on it youll be grand. great casting reel for distance and for just lobbying a bait out very light as well. ye wont go wrong with it pal.
