The T-Wing levelwind aperture is just that: T-shaped. When you release the spool, the ''hood'' lifts, allowing the line to flow effortlessly through the wide upper gap, for less friction and longer casts. When you re-engage, the line is guided back into the smaller part of the T to ensure precise placement on the spool. You’ll also get the Magforce® 3D cast control system, Zaion® frame, clutch cover, and sideplate, and a striking natural ''Black Marble'' Zaion finish. The T3 also features Ultimate Tournament Drag with micro-click adjustment, five ball bearings plus roller bearing, aluminum Swept Handle, free-floating aluminum spool, Infinite Anti-Reverse®, and One Touch spool change.
Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by over rated but nice Diawa rep talked me into it...was optimistic, then suprised at how easy and smooth it was. started getting cocky with how far it would lob a crankbait and snagged a boat seat behind me. got a 150 yard backlash that apparently sprung (sprang?) the t-wing, or bent the stabilizer bar. now, to get a level wind on retrieve, i have to palm the reel and hold down the front of the t wing so the line will run correctly through the line guide. daiwa called this damage "user abuse" and would not cover under warranty. i still think its a very good reel, just as long as i palm it during retrieve. wont buy another one though June 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice all around reel! Great all around reel. I like the switch it makes it very quick to change for different conditions August 9, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by The T-Wing Purchased the reel during the fishing classic. The T-Wing levelwind aperture was the selling point. The reel also has a composite frame and a large number of anti backlash options. I teamed the reel with a St. Croix Rage rod and am extremely excited about the combination. The casting distance is impressive. The reel has some new technology that is cetainly worth a look. March 4, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by best purchase This is a very nice and smooth baitcaster! I was very impressed with it. March 3, 2012

Answer this Question


except for my problem with the one piece "hood", this reel is hands down, in MY opinion, nicer than the pro qualifier. understand that the t3 is a mid proice range reel, and should be smoother. i love the drag on the t3, flawless on a 7.6 bass on 10 lb mono.

I can't compare the two reels as I only have the T3 Ballistic. The only problem I have with this reel is I don't want to use my other reels.
