The 1300 Tournament Series 'Whisker' Daiwa Reel is a great reel for Smallmouths and Slab Crappie or Finesse Bass Fishing! I have six-pound test Suffix Siege on it and was able to pull the 15" Crappie out of a snag using it yesterday! I believe I bought it sometime in the late 80's. It's paired with a 6', Medium Action Berkeley Bionix Rod, rated for 4-12 lb. test and 1/8th-3/8oz lures. My most frequent use of this Combo is as a Live Bait Trolling and Drifting Crappie Rod.
