The New Team Daiwa Zillion-R Casting Reel further raises the bar of the Zillion line with Daiwa's latest innovations in reel technology and sleek Japanese styling. The Zillion Type-R features an aluminum frame and side gear plate, providing the strength and stiffness necessary to handle the lightning-fast "Hyper-Speed" 7.3:1 gear ratio. The Zillion-R is silky smooth thanks to it's 12 bearings (11 ball bearings + 1 roller bearing), a "free-floating spool," and infinite anti-reverse. Precise adjustments can be made to the reel thanks to micro click knobs on the bearing cap and the top-of-the-line "Magforce-Z" magnetic breaking system. The Zillion-R isn't all precision, though: a rugged 6-point drive train and powerful Ultimate Tournament Drag mean this reel is ready for anything. Zillion-R has taken it's subtle styling cues from Japanese reel enthusiasts. Red highlights compliment aluminum finish trim, and the new Daiwa "Carbon Swept" handle is a perfect addition to this enthusiast-inspired reel.

Silky smooth and blazing fast, the Daiwa Zillion Type R Casting Reel features Daiwa's latest innovations along with sleek Japanese styling. Packed with 12 bearings, it also has a 7.3:1 gear ratio.

Comments: This reel is absolutely amazing. Silky smooth and casts perfectly. It's a tad heavy if your used to 7oz and lower reels, but you feel really connected with this one. If you're willing to dish out the dough for this baby, it's well worth it.

From: Mitch: MN

Comments: Have this reel paired with a ST. Croix Premier 7ft mh and this is my go to weapon of bass destruction. It is smooth and casts like a dream. The only problem I have had is the 7.3 graphic on the palm side wore off pretty quickly.

From: Rick: USA

Comments: awesome reel, keep two ready to go at all times on the boat. One for my frog pole and the other on my jig pole. Seems like this reel was specifically made for these two technics, you cannot beat the quality of Daiwa. Has plenty of drag to handle a big bass in the the thickest of slop. Must have for these two technics.

From: Jake: NC

Comments: not worth the money. Trust me. Before u invest in one of these reels i would go check out abu garcia reels u can get one of those that have the same quality but alot cheaper

From: Jared: KY

Comments: phenomenal reel worth every penny!! This reel is smooth like butter!! Casted this reel against the wind and it never birds nest on me! Reel so good makes you wanna slap yo mama!! Go get yours now

From: MN bass pro kv

Comments: First zillion ever not worth the money. This is a piece of metal that just sucks. The brake cup broke after a good fight with a pike.

From: Ryan: IL, USA

Comments: this is the worst reel i have ever owned its not smooth at all the bearings were broken after 10 trips and it basically completely seized up stay away from this reel!

From: Kayden: USA

Comments: Nice reel but not even close to the steez and anybody that thinks that obviously hasn't fished with a Steez.

From: Stepp: Hendersonville, NC

Comments: This is by far the smoothest Zillion out of them all. The price is a little higher than i want but once i got my first one after winning a tournament, i got more of them. I also have the Daiwa Steez reel but I like the Type R better than the Steez reel and would recommend it over a Steez reel anyday.

From: Markell: Asheville, NC

Comments: I have both the 50th anniversary and the Type R. The latter is so much more smoother in cranking and further in casting. I am suspecting this is a black version of JDM PE special zillion which is having the helical cut or digi gear but with upgraded ball bearings.

From: 67er: Singapore

Comments:This reel is nice but it feels like my reguliar Zillion as far as smoothness goes. There is a Japanese 2009 model: TD ZILLION 100L(Left model) 7.3-Limited, I tried in Japan that feels even smoother, but it'll cost you another $200. more then this one. I do like the handle on this model better however. I bought this model because I couldn't find the Japanese model in left hand.

From:Scott: Omura, Japan

Comments:I have 2 of these and I think they the best reels I own and I own 2 steez casting reels, their a little heavier but fit better in your hand,they are worth every penny smooooth.... very smooth.

From:Gary: Austin, TX

Comments:Nice reel, pretty much the same thing as the last few special editions. I prefer my 50th anniversary model more.

From:Gary: Texas, USA

Comments:I recently caught several largemouth bass with this reel and a custom z-bone from Kistler. This reel paired with that rod are a match made in heaven. I have the base Zillion and it doesn't even compare to Type R.

From:John: Tennessee, USA

Comments:Haven't taken mine out fishing yet, but man you can tell this reel is smoother than any other Zillion. I don't hear the gears mesh like they do on my 50th.
