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.

I got this back in October of last year!! From out of the box the reel just felt right. Much better design and feel then the old Daiwas. From that point on I have caught Bass,Snook,Redfish,Trout you name it. I have 15lb Spiderwire Ultracast on it now and it cast like a bullet. Strong reel. Does not flex like the Shimano Ci4 when your fighting a fish. Also has a comfy handle unlike the CI4 . Deff a good reel. I dunked it snook fishing last week. I actually tossed the whole combo into the water. The reel was on the bottom of the ocean for like 5 mins after I broke off a fish. Didnt wash it off or anything when I was fishing. 2 hours later caught a nice snook on it no problem. Of course rinsed it off when I got home and its still working like new. Love this reel!! Daiwa finally got it right

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.
