|Daiwa Zillion Coastal Casting Reel
Built specifically for the needs of the inshore angler is Daiwa’s new TD Zillion Coastal casting reel with the fastest gear ratio available in a compact saltwater reel of its kind.
The reel's 7.3 to 1 gear ratio means every crank of the reel's handle rotates the spool 7.3 turns, pulling in up to 32" of line. The point is to keep a lure or bait in productive water as much as possible, with less time wasted in getting it back for another cast, especially handy when fishing top-water rigs.
Compact in size, the reel offers plenty of line capacity to handle popular inshore species from Redfish, Trout and Snapper Blues in the Gulf and Eastern waters to Calico Bass on the Pacific side.
To resist the effects of saltwater corrosion, the reel has been given a total corrosion package, starting with six of Daiwa’s unique CRBB ball bearings. Designed to fight corrosion, they’ll last up to 12 times longer in saltwater use than ordinary stainless steel ball bearings. Plus, the bearings are shielded to keep out the sand and grit normally suspended in most inshore waters. Specialized anti-corrosion treatments and materials ensure reliable saltwater service from the reel’s other internal components as well.
Of course, the drag wasn’t overlooked either. Daiwa's eight-disc UTD carbon drag system applies ultra-smooth braking power to keep strong fish under control and wear them down fast. Click to Buy
|Daiwa Coastal Inshore Baitcasting Reel
Compact, yet with big-reel line capacity and durability, the CL153H is built specifically for the needs of the dedicated inshore fisherman. Daiwa’s Super Corrosion Resistant Ball Bearings and specialized anti-corrosion treatments fight the effects of saltwater to keep the reel running to perfection with only ordinary, routine maintenance. And for smooth, fish-stopping power, there’s Daiwa’s multi-disc, fiber composite wet drag. From Trout and Reds to Snapper Blues and Calicos, there simply isn’t a better inshore reel.
