    I was looking at those reels (shimano & diawa) from a Japanese tackle store on the internet. They talk about smoother gears and I did see a digital cast control on some of the shimanos.Are those reels that much better(some are really expensive!) than the reels we buy over here?

    I'm sure they are superior, but worth the price difference? That is the question. Not for me!

    you can find shimano DC reels in the states. I only buy Japanese reels that are unavailable in the US. i.e. Aldebaran bfs

    The dc cast and skips great, worth the price to. I have the curado dc and became my favorite reel for all applications.
