Loaded with features found in saltwater spinning reels at a much higher price point, the all-new BG MQ series provides strength and reliability in a price bracket that won't break the bank. Dressed beautifully in black, there is a size and model for all fishing styles from flathead in the estuary to GTs on the reef.

The 20 BG MQ marks a new era in affordable heavy-duty saltwater spinning reels, with MQ technology now becoming available to the more budget conscious anglers. Packed with advancements, BG MQ is built for the harshest conditions and is set to change the game once again.

Daiwa’s BG series has changed the game of what affordable quality looks like in heavy-duty spinning reels. Now, by combining Monocoque Body (MQ) technology with the mass market appeal of BG, 20 BG MQ is born.

Monocoque Body (MQ) is the single biggest revolution in spinning reel design from Daiwa by eliminating the traditional two-piece body construction. MQ reels don’t use any side plates and feature a completely screwless body design which eliminates potential entry points for water & grime, and significantly enhances overall body strength and rigidity.

The screwless design principle of MQ bodies are also significantly more compact than a standard body design. Screws need material to grip to, and that means more overall size and more mass in traditional body designs. By replacing the side plate with a machined aluminium engine plate which screws directly into the reel body, MQ reels can maximise the internal space made available by using larger size drive gears than before.

Throughout the entire line-up of BG MQ, vast improvements have been made to almost all areas of the reel design. The drag has been improved both in maximum capacity but also in smooth overall performance, drastically reducing the friction of the Carbon ATD drag - BG MQ’s drag performance is unmatched by the competition.

The MQ body construction not only has the obvious benefits of a stronger & more compact body design, it also delivers an increase in gear durability thanks to absolute zero movement of drivetrain components once installed inside an MQ body. Weather-sealing is also significantly improved, with seals visible in multiple locations throughout the reel, BG MQ is built for the harshest of environments.

Casting performance has also been improved with the implementation of Long Cast ABS (LC-ABS) spool design. LC-ABS spool design improves line flow from the spool, resulting in increased casting distances across the board with both heavy & light lines.

Throughout the BG MQ range, improvements have been made specific to the size of each reel to maximise their performance and overall appeal to each target market.

Small size BG MQ (2500-4000) feature dramatically larger sized drive gears. Middle sized models 5000 & 6000 now feature the Rigid Air Rotor design, maximising strength and appeal for mid-weight sportfishing applications. Larger size BG MQ from 8000-20000 receive huge benefits as a result of the MQ body, with the leg & main body drastically increased in strength without increasing weight.

BG MQ marks a new era in affordable saltwater spinning reels from Daiwa, with MQ technology now available to the masses. BG MQ is built for the harshest conditions and is set to revolutionise the industry once again. Available from 2500-20000 size, BG MQ is now aligned with 20 SALTIGA sizing.


Product Features:

Monocoque (MQ)

A one-piece frame eliminates the use of traditional two-piece body & sideplate construction. A single piece body utilises a screw-in engine plate to house the main gear, reducing flex and twist under load creating a sealed mechanism. The elimination of the side plate also has also allowed for a more compact body design. MQ technology not only makes reels stronger & better sealed, but also more compact.

Metal Alloy Body

Rock solid in strength and performance, alloy is tailor made for Australian conditions and allows a reel to be created that is light, yet strong, and supremely rigid and highly corrosion resistant.

ATD Drag

Daiwa’s Automatic Tournament Drag uses an improved drag grease that exhibits a low viscosity at rest yet becomes more viscous immediately after drag start up. This reduces initial drag start-up inertia, combined with the structural changes of the ATD Drag System results in a smoother drag from the initial hook up.

ABS Longcast

Compared to conventional spools, the LC-ABS has been shown to increase the average flight distance by approx. 5% due to its reduced weight and modified shape.


Lighter, stronger, and more balanced than any rotor system that’s come before, ‘Air Rotor’ delivers a great leap forward in rotor design and function and delivers the ultimate line roller support. Made from Zaion and featuring a redesigned arch that disperses pressure to the lower section of the rotor to reduce stressing and flexing, the design is further enhanced with a hollowed-out construction reducing weight, while increasing reel sensitivity and rotational balance.

Infinite Anti Reverse

Daiwa's advanced system that limits rearward backplay handle movement to almost zero for solid hooksets with less shock to the reel. The result is the elimination of handle slap-back and the unwanted release of line.

Machine Cut Handle

Our new handle design is slimmer, more compact, and 50% lighter.

Perfect Line Stopper

Our new larger rectangular flexible clip that can be used from all line angles and from light to heavy lines.


Featured on entry level reels Wire Bail is light, strong, ultra-smooth and protrusion free, allowing line to slide effortless along the bail towards the line roller.
