Daiwa SS2 3000C is the next evolution of the popular SS spin reels that were used by winners of two BASS Masters Classic championships. This reel, along with its four other SS2 series mates, features a larger reverse-tapered spool for increased cast performance and extremely large drag-washer surface. Though the panel gave it high marks as a good long-distance caster with a fine drag, the price was a sore point. ‘Seems overpriced for what you get,’ was echoed in various judgments.
