Daiwa Ballistic Spinning Reels are built for use in fresh or saltwater. Daiwa Ballistic Reels feature lightweight, corrosion-proof Zaion Carbon construction that rivals magnesium for strength and rigidity. Other features include a sealed drag and body, CRBB ball bearings and a lightweight Air Rotor with a unique shape that reduces unnecessary weight while distributing stress more evenly throughout the rotor for maximum strength. A two ball bearing spool support keeps drag washers in perfect alignment. Anglers will also appreciate this reel’s high speed retrieve.
Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Not for Kayak Fishing. I'm gonna take it upon myself to review every reel I use to kayak fishermen can know what they're getting into. This reel lasted 7 weeks, and perhaps 2 or 3 kayak fishing trips. I dunked it once, the other time my buddy accidentally grabbed my lure with his kayak and dragged the outfit right off my boat and then recovered it. After this, it started to feel 'grindy' inside, so it was on it's way out. Great looking reel, felt great when it was operating like it should. NOT FOR KAYAK FISHING unless you want to open the gear access every time you dunk it and/or every routine trip for maintenance. February 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Diawa Ballistic 3000 This reel has been beyond my expectations. Diawa now has me convinced.......their reels are amazing. I've caught 3 foot blacktip shark to 22 inch flounder to a 26 inch gator trout. The durability of this light reel is amazing. Dropped it in sand, splashed every time I go fishing. I have it matched up with a falcon costal 7-6 medium rod and I can fish all day with it. Had it 3 months now and is still as smooth as the day I bought it. July 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by worth more then msrp first off I own a shimano stradic 2500 ci4 its smooth and the drag is top notch, but the ballistic is just as smooth only difference is that the daiwa is smooth even when under heavy load it feels a lot more powerfull and it has a more solid smooth feeling. drags are equal. ci4 doesn't stack up but is worth its price, the daiwa ballistic on the other hand feels just as nice as my sustain 3000mg. this ballistic reel feels like a 300 dollar reel and is in my opinion the worlds beyond other reels in its class even my daiwa procyon feels better then my stradic. love all my reels but all in all daiwa is just better. and anyone who gets this would be crazy to think anything could possibly be better at this price. if you choose this reel good for you and enjoy!!

A: 
drags are equal, both are smooth, were the ballistic stands out is while under heavy load it maintains its smoothness with a very powerful feeling. the ballistic feels equal to my sustain mg. the ci4 doesn't feel smooth under heavy load compared to the ballistic, but the ci4 is lighter. if you choose the ballistic good for you.

A: 
I really shopped around and I think the shimano products are far superior to daiwa. I used to use a lot of daiwa gear but over the years I've been converted to shimano. You get more bang for your buck. I have 3 stradic ci4's and a couple of sustains and they all have performed very well.

Much better than the CI4. does not flex like the CI4 and has a smoother feel to it. It also has a much better handle to actual crank fish in. Here is a snook I caught on the reel last week.
