re-designed Exceler EXE sets a new standard in quality and features in a reel selling for less than a hundred dollars. The Exceler casting reels are loaded with great features starting first and foremost with a really neat design. The Exceler is very clean looking, with a black/graphite color that fits well with any brand of rod. Looking good aside, this reel is pretty solid throughout. The lightweight of the reel can be directly traced to the use of an aluminum frame and side plates which are significantly lighter than the old exceler reels. These reels also utilize Daiwa's ultimate tournament drag with 11lbs of max drag when completely buttoned down. Magforce cast control aids in smooth, accurate casts reducing backlashes significantly and making sure your cast ends up where you intended it to. Further more, this reel offers a much more powerful and comfortable handle. The cutaway swept handle design exhibits a great deal of power, with less wobble and more direct force fighting the fish not the reel. The handle is complete with oversizes, I shaped grips that ar comfortable, secure and durable. The Daiwa Exceler Reels are great choice for any freshwater fishing where baitcasters may be suitable, but bass fishing certainly leads the way. We offer the Daiwa Exceler Casting Reels in three gear ratios: 4.9:1 power (RH only), 6.3:1 (RH & LH) and 7.3:1 (RH & LH).
