does anyone know what the actual difference is between the 2508 and the 3012 models.i've looked in the daiwa catalogue and the spec is roughly the same,gear ratio same etc.the 3012 is slightly heavier and the spools hold more line,but thats about it.i assumed the 3012 would be for heavier work but on what grounds would this be brought about.
reason i'm asking i bought two 2508's tuesday and was wondering if i needed to sell one and get a 3012 to cover heavier float and feeder work.
cheers.

i bought a 3012 mate for feeder work as the bigger spool aids casting etc, if you are casting heavy feeders or method i would get a 3012.

ive heard the 2508 are perfect for commercials but the 3012 is for long distance 80yards breaming chucks

i prefer smaller reels no matter what so 2508 would be my choic all the way

The body size and the internals of the reels are exactly the same! The 3012 just has a bigger rotor and spool, the 2508 size would be fine for feeder and heavy float work.

I have the 3012,personally I prefer the bigger spool.
Obviously,if buying from scratch I'd get the 3012.To be honest though,if I'd just bought a pair of 2508's I certainly wouldn't sell one to swap for a 3012.
Don't think you'll be unhappy either way really!

I have the 3012 and i love it its is super strong thr drag is just brilliant, it copes with double figure carp with ease , this reel has so much power its un-real, i would recommend this for heavy feeder work and fishing surface baits, but for work like the pellet waggler and bomb work/age feeder the 2508 would be my choice.
