Product details

The Daiwa Exceler LT Spinning Reel is designed to be light yet tough (LT). This reel is built with a carbon lite body. This composite material remains lightweight and does not corrode like metal. A 5 BB + 1 roller bearing configuration keeps the reel operating smoothly. Air Rotor technology better balances the rotor, while making it 15 percent lighter than other rotors. The gear ratio options are 5.2:1, 5.3:1, or 6.2:1. Conventional anglers would use this reel.

Key Features:

  • Minimal Start Up Inertia – The ATD drag system reduces start up inertia and has a maximum drag of 26.4.
  • Machine Cut Handle – The machine cut handle is slimmer and more compact while retaining strength.
  • Air Bail – A hollow tubular bail is lightweight but rigid, and aids in line management.

This is a great reel for bass or whatever else you are after in freshwater, plus it is durable and strong enough for saltwater fishing! This reel has a carbon drag system that maxes out at 22 lbs. of force and a spool capacity of up to 160 yards of 16 lb. monofilament. This combined with the 5.3:1 gear ratio and 5+1 ball bearing system gives you an incredibly smooth reel that is fantastic for landing some big fish! Oh yeah, and even with all this power, the reel only weighs 7.5 oz, so it won't wear you out during a long day of casting!!
