Daiwa Ballistic EX Spinning Reels - $199.99 to $209.99

The Daiwa Ballistic EX Spinning Reel delivers premium spinning reel performance befitting of the Ballistic name. Daiwa’s cutting-edge Magsealed technology keeps functioning impossibly smooth, while keeping the elements out. Next generation Nano fluids form an excellent low friction seal for the rotating shaft.

Daiwa’s Air Rotor, made from advanced Zaion carbon composite, weighs up to 15% less than ordinary rotor designs, while also distributing stress more evenly throughout the rotor for maximum strength. Digigear technology also helps ensure maximum winding power, and the waterproof drag system stays tough for years of reliable service. Powerful, reliable and advanced, the Daiwa Ballistic EX Spinning Reel has what it takes for fishing light lines in high pressure situations.

Comments: Have had the BLS-EX2500H now for couple month's. Casts as well as any spinning reel out there, I also have Certate's and Caldia's. Drag seems very good. Excellent reel but expensive as are the Certates. The EX-2500H is definitely lighter than the same size Certate. Also comes with the inner & outer spool shaft bearings which do not come standard on the Certate? I can't speak for the larger sizes but this one handles 14# Sunline Super Sniper FC line with ease. Agree right out of box needed a one size smaller spacer which is included and quite easy to replace, not a problem at all. Like it so much now have another one on the way to me. Reel is extremely smooth, quiet, great drag, casts with ease.

Comments: Bought this reel and can say I will be returning it. It's HEAVY. The factory weight is a lie. It is MASSIVE, its bulky and UGLY. Gritty feeling after 2 hours in fresh water. Directly out of the box it needs a spacer because the line does not lay on the spool evenly. The reel is smooth... for about 10 casts. Hooked a lake striper on a shakey head and got to test this drag outk also a joke. The drag is everything BUT smooth.  constantly starting and stopping, catching and breaking free. The best phrase for it is herky

Comments: I absolutely love this reel it's super light, super smooth, and casts like a dream. I recommend this reel to anybody who is wanting to step up their game but not wiling to spend a lot of money.

From: Braden: Orlando, FL 9/28/14

Comments: excellent reel: smooth, tight and effortless to turn handle. Almost as good as my Steez. I have the 2000 size. Better than any Stradic I have used and slightly smoother than my Patriarchs or my Fuegos

From: Rod: Clovis, CA 9/1/14

Comments: The new Ballistic performs flawlessly. The quality of this reel really impresses me. This reel is SMOOTH and the drag is phenomenal. I would expect a much higher price point considering I like it way more than the Stradic and still prefer it over the Sustain. Daiwa has outdone themselves with this product.
