Product Reviews

Diplomat Mooching Reel is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Looks good, but does not perform well. I received this reel as a gift and was really excited about trying it out. After the very first fish (39lbs Chinook), the reel had a failure and stopped the clicking noise when the line was being pulled out. It was returned to the distributor with confirmation of a broken spring. After almost a year I got the reel back. Giving the reel another chance and the same thing happened on the very next fish (15lbs Chinook). So, two fish and two failures. Not great. Also very disappointed with the line creep when fishing on a down rigger. To prevent the creep, the drag has to be cranked down to an unacceptable level.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful craftmanship Living in the Pacific Northwest, I have had the opportunity to “play” with some other center pin salmon mooching reels that price out at almost 6 figures. The Abu Garcia Diplomat mooching reel is comparable in every facet to these reels at a 1/3 of the cost. Thank you Abu Garcia for competing in a niche market with a beautifully crafted reel and keeping the cost to where the “average joe” can afford it.
