Light. Amazingly responsive. What more do you expect from Daiwa?
This famed Baitcast fishing reel is about as top of the line as it gets in the ergonomic bass reel department. Its casting is immaculate and, despite being towards the top end of the Daiwa price range, this entry is a fantastic choice for newer enthusiasts thanks largely to its effortless handling and general ease of use.
This entry elevates expected Steez performance, combining Daiwa's T-Wing system and the SV Spool along with the Air Brake to create a system that's just about unmatched in its casting accuracy and distance. Better yet, it's just about backlash-free whatever bait you use.
Our opinion: A wide aperture on the line guide makes for a smooth flow on this beauty. Above aircraft grade aluminium makes it lightweight and strong at the same time, and the handle-side Zero Adjuster makes calibrating spool action simple.
Weight is unbelievable thanks in part to its magnesium Airmetal frame. 13 corrosion-resistant bearings and an oversized drive gear make it smooth and powerful. We find it hard to find a single fault with this top-end reel. Great job Daiwa! Baitcasters the world around thank you for this one.
