Instead of starting a new thread, I'll post these pics in the original by The Fishing Hobby.

I got this Daiwa 8600 on eBay in a lot of 9 assorted spincasters, baitcasters, and spinners.  All reels averaged $4.75 shipped each.

It was scuffed and dirty, handled turned very stiffly, needed serviced very badly.








Wouldn't doubt it had ever been serviced.








Cleaning this one was a chore.  Lacquer thinner, Simple Green, and Dawn dishwashing detergent took care of it.


Reinstalling bail trip lever and spring.


Used Ardent Reel Butter reel oil on the bearings.  This reel had one pinion bearing and two bearings on the main gear.


Almost got it back together.


Still scratched and scuffed and definitely not a looker but this reel will be fished.  It's missing a side plate screw I can probably find either in the laundry room or garage.




These reels weigh 18.4 oz not including line, and are approximately the same size as a D-A-M Quick 440 or a Shakespeare 2081-A.  They should be able to handle many of the larger freshwater species such as catfish, striped bass, carp, buffalo, drum, lake trout, and paddlefish.


That looks like it cleaned up well! The history marks are no big deal  Grin
Hope you like it, they are very good quality reels!

Nice work, festus.  Impressive reel.  I noticed on one of the old ads that Daiwa had a lifetime warranty on the 8600 (maybe others too) & I wonder what hassles might result to enforce that warranty today.

Dust it off, clean it up and put some line on it...take it out for old times sake every once in a while! Well built reels, no doubt about it 👍

   I have been lurking for a good deal on one of these 8000 series reels for what seems like ages. In the meantime, I have discovered some equally impressive old reels for much less. It makes you wonder...take two equally impressive reels...why does one reel become rock star famous while the other becomes obscure?

Maybe because "Rock Star Famous" is for the general angling public --

Because we do this all of the time, we might tend to forget...the things you guys (on our Alan Tani Site) know about what makes reels tick -- involve more than just looks and function...

Most of the folks who are regular readers and contributors on our site -- likely know 10 times more about 100 various reels -- from the engineering, quality of materials, to being able to break them down for repair & service quickly and effectively.

YOU are the experts that folks respect and listen to...

You are "Reel Ninjas"!

Best, Fred

The 8000 series Daiwa reels used to go for peanuts. I noticed about 6 months after I uploaded that initial video I did about the 8600 the prices had gone way up on feebay. Could be coincidence, but I've noticed when reels get talked about a little online, the prices go up soon after.

Lately they're asking 90 bucks or more for these reels.  l was lucky to get a couple of rough looking ones that work very well for under $10 each.

Most average fisher people have no clue what's inside a spinning reel, or any concept about where quality lies until someone with a little knowledge points it out. I've been messing with spinners my entire life and never felt the urge to check into some of those higher quality '60s/'70s Japanese made reels. Never had a clue that the South Bend Gladding 900 series' had decent quality worm gear design until you gents opened one up. Learn something new everyday, as the saying goes. I figured all Asian made SBs were junk like the 725A I inherited back in about 1970.   Cheesy

   I hear ya brother! That's pretty much what happened to me on these 8000 series Daiwas. I must have been tinkering with one of my other frankenheros when Kevin posted this video. By the time I got hip to the situation...prices had tripled! But hey...watcha gonna do? If we didn't talk about these reels and share knowledge, collecting wouldn't be near as interesting. I'll eventually nab one. Cool

There was a Daiwa 8600 in a group of parts reels a few days ago that could've been had, but I didn't see anything else worthwhile except the Zebco.  $7.50 plus $12.95 shipping.
