Daiwa BG Vs. Daiwa BG MQ [VIDEO]
Daiwa BG & Daiwa BG MQ Differences
Weight is the first difference.
The BG MQ is a full ounce lighter, which will definitely help if you’re throwing artificials all day.
Both reels have carbon fiber washers inside of the caps.
But the cap on the BG MQ is wider so heat will disperse much quicker on the BG MQ.
A substantial difference between the two reels is the max drag.
(22lb for the BG MQ versus 13.2lb for the BG)
But as an inshore angler, the drag on the BG is going to be plenty.
Although zinc is the gear material for both reels, the BG MQ’s main gear is about 20% thicker so you’ll get more power.
Lastly, the Daiwa BG MQ has 9 internal seals while the BG does not.
Overall the extra bells and whistles you get with the BG MQ are worth the extra cost.
If you want something that is a little smoother, tougher, and will last longer, go with the Daiwa BG MQ spinning reel.
