The all new EXCELER LT - Daiwa uses a carbon
fiber body called ZAION V. The new version is
3%-5% lighter than our current EXCELER for
comparable sizes. It also comes with an
AIRDRIVE ROTOR & AIRDRIVE BAIL like our
version on the EXIST—are tubular but they’re
not on the EXCELER. We went to a solid bail
wire for its rigidity and resistance to
bending during normal use, the thinner,
smaller wire is also lighter, which reduces
the weight of the rotation, thus reducing the
weight of the reel.
It's machined aluminum handle is a
comfortable, strong connection to the main
gear of the spinning reel. And the retooled
EXCELER is extremely smooth utilizing 5 ball
bearings and 1 roller bearing to maximize
- AIR BAIL: Daiwa's innovative bail design features a hollow tubular stainless steel bail that delivers maximum rigidity and strength with minimum weight. Featuring a smooth protrusion-free design and construction line easily slides unencumbered along the Air Bail towards the line roller for trouble free line control.
- AIR ROTOR: Lighter, stronger and more balanced than any rotor system that’s come before, ‘Air Rotor’ delivers a great leap forward in rotor design and function and delivers the ultimate reel sensitivity and rotational balance.
- ATD DRAG: Daiwa’s Automatic Tournament Drag uses an improved drag grease that exhibits a low viscosity at rest, yet becomes more viscous immediately after drag start up. This reduces initial drag start-up inertia and combined with the structural changes of the ATD Drag System results in a smoother drag from the initial hook up.
- ZAION V BODY: A new generation of lightweight Daiwa’s resin and carbon material. The Zaion V material is both strong and incredibly lightweight.
