Daiwa Exceler LT Spinning Reel For Sale (23 Model)

The 2023 Daiwa Exceler Fishing Reel uses new innovative Airdrive technology to create one of the market's lightest, most responsive, and most powerful budget spinning reels in the Australian market. Designed by Daiwa for Aussie anglers, the new Daiwa Exceler Reel is the ultimate blend of feather-light performance and heavy-duty strength.

About Exceler Airdrive

The Exceler fishing reel's Airdrive system includes the Airdrive Rotor, Bail, Spool, and Shaft. This four-pillar concept combines to dramatically reduce weight and rotational inertia for a spinning reel that responds instantly to the slightest amount of line recovery. How effortlessly and efficiently the Daiwa Exceler Reel winds is impressive.

Kiss goodbye to weary forearms and welcome lazy days on the water. The unique Airdrive design removes the drudgery from winding, so you can cast more, work lures longer and cover more territory with less chance of fatigue.

Toughness That Belies Its Size

Don't let its slender form fool you. The Daiwa Exceler Reel boasts a rugged Digigear drive train and sturdy bail to muscle up anything that dares bite down hard. Marvel at its ability to stop even bruising Barramundi dead in their tracks. This is one ultra-light reel with heavyweight credentials.

Dominate The Flats & Dance Your Soft Plastics

When fishing for bream, the Daiwa Exceler Reel in smaller sizes enhances finesse and sensitivity, whether using delicate lures in the shallows or working soft plastics over structure.

When it's time to move offshore and jig the depths, the power of the larger 6000 becomes evident as it overpowers reef donkeys. From backwaters to blue water, the Exceler LT is at home. No matter what size you choose to purchase.

Daiwa Exceler Reel FAQs

What makes the Exceler Airdrive Design so important?

Airdrive Design reduces weight fairly while enhancing smoothness through minimised rotational inertia. This makes winding extremely light, efficient and fatigue-reducing. You'll gain greater finesse, cast further, and potentially fish longer.

What types of fishing is the Daiwa Exceler LT Reel best suited for?
The Exceler LT performs brilliantly at finesse techniques in estuaries chasing bream, flathead and whiting. The larger sizes also pack enough muscle, cranking power, and drag strength to tackle big barra in freshwater, reef donkeys, snapper, jewfish and other species offshore.

What are the main differences between the Exceler LT sizes?

Finesse Sizes (2000 & 2500)

For chasing bream, whiting, bass and other light estuary species with 4-6lb lines, the 2000 and 2500 sizes shine. Their compact form and finesse translate perfectly when using sub 1-5kg rods up creeks and shallows. With a bit more line capacity, the 2500 is also a top choice for lake and river fishing.

All-Rounder Inshore Size (3000)
Straddling light and mid-sized duties, the 3000 brings more power and capacity for soapy mulloway, medium snapper, flathead and all-around heavy estuary work. It’s a versatile size to cover 3-6kg lines and many 6-8ft fishing rods.

Heavy Inshore Size (4000 & 5000)

When battling big barramundi, cod, yellowbelly and the like on heavier lines, the 4000 and 5000 models step up with superior cranking torque, heavier drags and added line capacity. They also double as light offshore reels for chasing snapper and reefies.

Bluewater, Rock and Surf Fishing Size (6000)
The Exceler 6000 bridges the gap into serious offshore sports pursuits like jigging, bait fishing, and rock and surf casting. With its extreme cranking power and maximum 12kg drag, the Daiwa Exceler 6000 can easily handle big fish like kingies, salmon, tailor and cobia, from offshore, beaches or rocks.

Is there an Exceler LT reel size that does it all?
For the ultimate all-rounder suitable for most Aussie salt and fresh species, it's hard to beat the Exceler LT 4000 reel matched with a 5-8kg fishing rod. While It won’t necessarily do it all, a 4000 Exceler covers many fishing scenarios from inshore to light offshore.
