Be wary about the Daiwa numbering system. I saw something recently that suggested that new reels are not conforming to the old Daiwa sizing conventions. 5000 and 6000 models are appearing in reel ranges that would only go as big as 40** size previously. Those 5/6000 sized models might not be as big as we expect under the older sizing conventions, and a new 2000/2500/3000/4000 might not be as big as anticipated. Be wary if buying blind based on nothing more than model numbers.
