Daiwa designed the Pluton to be light and compact but pack as much punch possible within those boundaries. The Pluton is designed to handle big fish and heavy braided line, two things that don't normally mix with light tackle. The solid yet lightweight, one piece aluminum frame and super smooth multi-disc drag are built to handle extreme pressure, torque and punishment.
The Daiwa Pluton is available in a high-speed 6.2:1 gear ratio, giving you the ability to match your style of fishing. The Pluton is loaded with eight corrision-resistant CRBB ball bearings and a roller ball bearing ensuring consistent smoothness and durability. Daiwa has carried over the cast control technology from the Luna reels, the Pluton has a side panel cast control, making the Pluton an extremely versatile reel. The infinite Anti-Reverse delivers bone jarring hooksets and the Swept Handle design minimizes wobble and provides maximum winding leverage.
Line Cap Braid: 20/400, 30/300
Comments: Wow ! Strong reel and very smooth !On sale, I bought it one week ago at Tacklewarehouse and received it 3 days after shipping to France ! I just use it for bigbaits and big fishes ( Musky, catfish ...) . Thanks to tacklewarehouse for this bargain. See you soon

Comments: If you haven't tried this reel you're missing out on a fantastic freight train of a round reel!! If you swimbait fish, don't walk, RUN to the computer (yours!) or the phone and get one NOW! You simply won't get a reel with more features at this heavily discounted price. I have a half dozen or so reels assigned for swimbaits but this is the only reel capable of doing it ALL. Buy one now or regret the buy of the year.

Comments: Love this reel. It's actually alot like my calcutta D. The weight and dimensions are almost identical as the 400 D, however, i feel the calcutta D casts just a bit farther and smoother than the pluton. The pluton is a great reel though, but i would go with the calcutta D if i had to choose just one.
From: Greg: Brentwood, CA
Comments: This reel is way better than that new over rated calcutta d. I got caught up in all the hype on this new calcutta d. Shimano makes some awesome products. But the new calcutta d a joke. Order this pluton reel and fell in love. Its so smooth especially the drag. The reel is easy to use and control. Have no problems with it so far. Like to see how it holds up in a year of fishing. Because its my first daiwa. Im a long time shimano guy.
From: Davis: Portland
Comments: Super smooth all the way around. This reel a beast when it comes to fighting monster stripers.
From: Sam: NC
Comments: agree with all comments above beautiful reel.Love her to death.thank you Daiwa future client for life
Comments: Great reel, I do mostly Saltwater fishing. This reel will bring in any Snook, Red you can catch. I have landed a 55 LB Tarpon and even a 36" Gag Grouper with this reel with no problems at all , I think its the best reel for the money. Fishing it for a year now wish I could get matching Spinning reel.
From: Chris: Fort Myers, FL
Comments:I used this baby and never experienced any birds nest, I keep on casting all day long and not a single one. The best casting reel I ever had, I pair it with my Shimano Tiralejo casting rod.
From:Ruel: Staten Island, NY
Comments:SOLID!!! Should have bought the Pluton from Tackle Warehouse and saved on taxes. Big Power out of a small reel. No problems after two months of constant use. Great for big fish hunters!
