Daiwa Regal LT Spinning Reel uses LT Light Tough Technology, making it lighter and more rigid than standard materials. The reel weight has been reduced to 6.7 ounces for the 1000 series and 7.6 ounces in the 3000 series, minimizing the heft without compromising strength. The Air Rotor System improves rotation and balance. Featuring an advanced Tournament drag system and a machined swept-back aluminum folding handle with an oversized knob, this reel delivers a comfortable and efficient feel all around. Not to mention, you've got nine ball bearings and one roller bearing for a silky smooth feeling operation. For the price point, the Daiwa Regal LT Spinning Reel is an easy way to step up your game.
