Default Daiwa electric reel

Hi guys, anyone know what the plug is that fits into a daiwa electric reel? I'm sick of replacing the lead due to the fact the cable isn't tinned so trying to make my own. Any idea what the plug is or where I could get one?

Thanks

The corrosion gets into the cord where it is crimped onto the pins for the plug that goes into the reel. The cable isn't tinned so with a current running through it, it turns into a black powder. Had they used a tinned cable the problem would not be there.

I goop up the connector with dielectric grease, after having the same issue you are seeing. Has worked well so far.

Got ya. Makes sense. How much do you use your plugs?

I'm pretty sure the connector is a Daiwa part. I spoke to them and asked if they sold them seperately and they said no. Of course they want you to buy the whole cable instead. Like mentioned above, next time pump dielectric grease into the sockets but it sounds like you'll need a new cable. If there are other plugs available I'm all ears!

We sell and I also own the same reels. I replaced my Diawa plugs with standard 30 amp twist locks so everything on the boat uses the same plugs. I have had zero issues.

Can you attach a pic? I"m curious. Wonder if they will fit a Banax kaigen reel too. I'm using 2 TB750s and 2 small Banax reels. The connectors look similar but they're not compatible so I have 4 cables. We only use 2 reels at a time so it would be nice to have just 2 cables.

Yeah I do grease the plug, but the problem is at the back of the plug where the grease won't get to. I doubt the plug is a Daiwa part. It looks to me like a standard 2 pin connector. There are new leads on ebay that have been hand made and the plug is a different looking item, but obviously the same to fit the reel so they are available somewhere.

You can try spraying corrosion-x into the sockets and leave the plug facing upward so the liquid gets back into the wire.

When I spoke to Daiwa they said the plug was a Daiwa specific part but I agree it seems doubtful.

Try cleaning the end of the female end with a small piece of fine sandpaper then apply dielectric grease. Usually does the trick if everything else is working.
