Fishing Applications and Fishing Rod Suggestion Guide

The Daiwa Ryoga Reel will be particularly appealing to sports anglers who target monster Murray Cod, and prize Barramundi from the salt and fresh. It’s a brilliant option for seeking out the 90 cm plus Flathead and for casting a larger lure for the biggest Mangrove Jacks in the water. The wily Jack is a notoriously dirty fighter and a heart breaker, but the Ryoga will serve to level the playing field.

Being a baitcaster reel, they require a baitcaster fishing rod. However, with the swimbait craze for Murray Cod now in full force, they make an excellent addition to any swimbait baitcaster rod.


  • The obvious benefit is that you are fishing with the very best Diawa baitcaster technology money can buy. There is no peer.
  • The G1 Duraluminium Speed Shaft Free Floating spool combines flawlessly with Zero Adjuster and Magforce Z casting control for long and accurate casts, regardless of lure size and conditions. Casting is truly effortless.
  • The Hyper Mesh gear system is profoundly powerful and so smooth you literally can barely feel it. Combined with the High Grip, I Shape Light Knobs on the 90mm Swept Handle; there is no other crank even remotely like it in feel and precision.
  • Of course, Daiwas famous Magseal is employed to keep water and other undesirable elements out of the refined mechanisms of this highly tuned reel. Your Ryoga will perform at peak spec for many sessions.
  • The machine cut alloy body and side plates protect the refined inner workings of your Ryoga from performance hacking twist and the reel destroying elements.

The Daiwa Ryoga Reel is the sort of baitcaster all baitcaster fans aspire to own. Being the Daiwa flagship model, rest assured that its performance exceeds the considerable hype and the critical acclaim. Treat yourself to the best, put a Daiwa Ryoga Reel in your trolley now.
