LIGHT AND TOUGH
LT is a new concept in Daiwa engineering which has produced new sizes of reels that are smaller and tougher than ever. The entirely redesigned Digigear drive is reinforced.
It’s impossible to part with an LT reel once you’ve held it in your hands!
NEW COMPACT DESIGN
Daiwa engineers have sought to eliminate unnecessarily heavy components and shapes without compromising on the toughness or the capacity of the spool. This totally new compact design with a more powerful Digigear gives our LT reels an unrivalled weight to power ratio.
Lighter: Comparison of current models. Ballistic LT2500D : 180g. Luvias 2510PE-H : 245g
ZAION and DS5
ZAION and DS5 are extremely tough materials which benefit from Daiwa’s own carbon technology. These carbon components make the reel lighter yet tougher than standard graphite. 100% resistant to corrosion even in saltwater environments. Light, tough and durable: these are the best build materials for our reels.
Lighter: Materials have been comapred at a given density
Inspired by the Digigear, this tougher brother has been optimised in all respects: diameter, thickness, shape and size of the teeth. We have trialled and tested each detail in turn and refined the elements with surgical precision.
The result is pure technical prowess in terms of toughness.
ALUMINIUM AIR SPOOL
We have re-designed the shape, size and thickness of this spool to produce an ultra-light version way ahead of its predecessors. Even lighter than our current ABS Air Spool, which fine-tunes the balance of the reel.
Comparison of current models: Ballistic LT2500D : 25g. Luvias 2510PE-H : 36g
ULTRA POWERFUL DRAG
We’ve brought together multiple improvements down to the very finest detail of the spool build, the shaft, the discs, and the braking surface to maximise the benefits of ATD.
LT reels have redefined the boundaries of maximum drag ratings, despite their reduced size and weight. Comparison of current models. LT2500: 10kg. 2500: 7kg.
We have retooled the handle to bring it into line with the main objective of strength and fishing durability. The new design contributes to the lightness of the reel.
