The Daiwa T3 Ballistic XS Limited Edition Casting Reel. Full Racing Colors. T-Wing under the hood. Lightning fast 8.1:1 gear ratio. Longer swept handles. Only offered once - when they’re gone, they’re gone.

Featuring an unprecedented, lightning fast 8.1:1 gear ratio, the Daiwa T3 Ballistic XS Limited Edition Casting Reel is by far one of the fastest reels to ever hit the water. Also one of the most technologically advanced reels available, its unique T-Wing feature allows for longer casting and a sink rate you just can’t achieve with a normal levelwind. During casting or free-spool mode with Daiwa's revolutionary T-Wing SiC Casting System, the cover (at the front of the reel) lifts up and the upper portion of T-shaped levelwind creates additional space for line to more freely come off the spool. This ensures significantly less friction than a standard levelwind which forces line to funnel through a narrow opening. The result is much longer, more accurate casting, as well as a more natural fall from your lures. When the reel is re-engaged the cover closes down and guides the line through the narrow portion of the "T" levelwind, winding line like a traditional levelwind and providing the best of both worlds.

Daiwa even included their new Magforce 3D Cast Control System, which offers 20 fine tuning increments in 3 modes (Max Brake, All Around & Long Cast), yielding 60 stages of complete cast control. Daiwa's proprietary Zaion Carbon construction also delivers the lightweight strength and rigidity of magnesium, while retaining excellent corrosion resistance. One hot machine, pick up a Daiwa T3 Ballistic XS Limited Edition Casting Reel while you still can.

Customer Reviews

Comments: MAN! What a sleek reel! I bought this reel to be my Texas Rig reel, works GREAT. Little Pricy but I plan to keep this for upwards of 4 years.

From: Cal: MN

Comments: These reels are awesome! I have the original balistic T3 and I love it- so I cannot wait to get my hands on one of these!

From: James

Comments: I'm right handed. If they made a left handed retrive it would be great! The whole switch hands thing is pointless. Why should I have to relearn how to fish just to use Daiwa's product? It's not fair! Hopefully they are just testing the market with these things, because the colors are horrible anyways. I guess I'll just wait for the next big thing. I'll just keep using my Shimano Core 51mg for now!

From: Jerry: IL

Comments: ketchup or mustard, your choice - ugliest colors i've ever seen.

From: Bud

Comments: im right handed but i think itsso stupid to switch hands on every cast which is why i use left handers i can engage the reel faster ......they should offer it both ways
