First time out with this reel I was extremely happy, I caught 25 bass on it. Drag is good and reel is smooth with good anti reverse. One thing I have noticed is that the line isn't spooled super evenly and usually tends to bunch at the top of the spool although not to an impactful degree.
ProsGood drag, smooth

This economy reel are very good option for fresh water and salt watrer beach spinning. The model Daiwa Crossfire 3000 whit 200 yards of 10 pound line and 8 feet rod work very well por bass or barracudas.
ProsPerformance, the legendary Daiwa craftsmanship and performance.
ConsOnly 3 ball bearings.

If just a little saltwater drops in, the reel is trash. And the warranty service is really bad. They will say it was not manufacture defect and charge you a lot of money for the repair. Won't buy and Daiwa product any more.
Drop shot perfection

Bought this Daiwa Crossfire from Tackle Direct. It was on sale. The order came delivered fast and got to use it soon after. I love this reel. It is very smooth and it has an instant brake/lock. I use it to catch stocked trouts, so I spool a 4lb mono on it. I really like it. I found out that I like Daiwa Crossfire better than Daiwa Sweepfire.
Good reel great purchase

Good reel, a tiny bit noisy and has a small bail wire, but other than that no other complaints. The purchase of the reel couldn't be any better! Excellent price for a good reel and an equally impressive shopping experience as usual! Cant go wrong with TackleDirect!!!
ProsGreat price, great brand, good looking reel
ConsSmall bail wire, a tiny bit noisy

As it's no surprise, Daiwa makes puts out quality items. The Cross Fire 2500 spinning reel is a great product, smooth, powerful, long cast.

I have not had a chance to use this reel yet however it appears to be well balanced and made to last, it spins very smooth and looks good. I also like the packaging.
is this reel freshwater only, or can i bring it for light inshore saltwater excursions? 2500 Crossfire
The Daiwa Crossfire reels are inexpensive saltwater reels that i would not advise using in heavy saltwater conditions. I would use this reel in rivers and creeks that feed from back bays instead of fishing in heavier saltwater areas.
