Designed primarily for carp fishing, the Daiwa® Windcast Z Carp Reels are fast, distance casting reels that are well matched to a variety of fishing styles. A tapered spool delivers high speed line release for distance casting—a feature that’s also enhanced by a traveling line guard. A Quick Drag allows big fish anglers to crossover between the free spool mode and the drag engaged, with less than one turn of the drag knob. Its eight corrosion-resistant ball bearings and Long Cast spool make it ideal for the surf as well. Other features include an aluminum wishbone handle, a high-impact HIP clip, and a built-in cushion on the pin for forgiving but secure line location, letting you cast with precision every time.
Rated 3 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Ok for the price Overall a pretty nice reel, the QD is definitely nice and the line capacity is comparable to that of many other big pit style carp reels on the market. I have a few complaints though. The wishbone handle is really wobbly and there's no way to fix it, so on the retrieve it gets really annoying sometimes. The other complaint is the reel is really noisy! The gears make a lot of noise when working, but it doesn't really take much away from the performance of the reel. it's not a bad reel just has some minor problems in the design. December 25, 2012

A: 
Depending on the rod you pair it with, i've been able to hit 150 yards with a 12 foot 3.25lb TC Carp rod, 30lb braid, and a 3oz weight. Should easily be able to break 100 yards with a 12 foot rod
