Default Cabela's Verano Spinning Reel Engineered by Daiwa!

When I saw this reel listed in Cabela's catalog. The stores did not have it yet, so I ordered it and got it last week. The specs match up with the Daiwa Ballistic. At 7.6 oz's, the 2000 model Verano is a better looking reel and may be a step up from the Daiwa Ballistic with one more ball bearing. I paired it up with the new Daiwa Tatula 6'11" Drop Shot Rod. The Cabela's Reel matches the Daiwa rod perfectly in balance, action and cosmetics. I will add to this post when I get it out on the water.

It's made by Daiwa for Cabela's so it's probably a tweaked Ballistic. They're both made in China and I'll bet they're hit or miss b/c a lot of mixed reviews on the Ballistic. No spare spool either! My wife would kill me if I spent $200 bucks on a spinning reel! I've at least convinced her I NEED a new St. Croix Spinning rod - lol! Which I think IF I'm spending a few hundred dollars and have to choose - the quality fishing rod gives me a lot more bang for my buck. Weight I would imagine is a factor for you tourney guys and/or those that fish quite often. For me, I'll be lucky to have an $80 budget on a spinning reel for my new St. Croix! But, for how often I fish I should be able to locate a few solid spinning reels int hat price range...

Daiwa told me that the Lexa spools will fit the Cabela's Verano Spinning reels. They didn't have an answer for why Cabela's didn't supply or make available extra spools for the Verano Reels.

Hello CJV66.
I have just seen Verano reel on Cabela's site and liked it. For my question about compatibility with Daiwa reele, Cabela's support answered that not compatible. It's really strange, because this real looks exactly like Ballistic. From your previous messages I understood that Lexa spool is compatible, have you already tested this? If yes -please let me know. Have you also tried to perform compare of gear and other parts with other Daiwa's reels.
Thank you in advance...
