When you’re looking for an affordable fishing reel the last thing you want are ‘budget’ inclusions and a sorry list of ‘exclusions’. Yet again Daiwa comes through with a fantastic offering in the form of the Daiwa Exceler Fishing Reel 2000 DX. Priced to be accessible to the most cautious of budgets, the Exceler DX will surely impress.
The DX includes top shelf technology and innovations such as Digigear, the perfect marriage of alloy to bronze creating super smooth strength and durability in gearing. The ‘Air Rotor’ adds further benefits to smooth reliable winding. The light weight mechanism is also very powerful and strong ensuring balance retrieves time after time. The retrieve is balanced, consistent and light weight. Now add fish to the mix and the Diawa Ultimate Tournament Drag (UTS) comes into its own.
To complete the package Daiwa add Twist Buster and Air Bail technology. You can now take for granted your cast will be long, loop and tangle free cast after cast with each retrieve creating uniform spool of line, setting the perfect platform for the next cast and the next after that.
Lightweight strength and reliability in a great looking package. Affordable and built to last. What more could you ask for in a small fishing reel.
