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.
