Daiwa Ballistic LT Product Review

The Daiwa Ballistic is an incredibly versatile reel that is great for any fisherman (professional or casual) and almost any situation.

We know what you’re thinking…Reels that advertise themselves as the “whole package” don’t typically come cheap. However, this reel is one of the exceptions.

This versatility doesn’t often come at such an affordable price, so what Daiwa has done with the Ballistic LT is really impressive. The body of the reel is constructed using some of the most durable material on the planet. Not something you’d expect from an affordable reel, right? Daiwa delivers a quality-made product at a great price point.

The Ballistic LT is an excellent reel for all-around fishing purposes and a variety of situations. It should be thought of as a lightweight and versatile reel, always ready for what you need it to do. The Daiwa Ballistic reel has you covered on all sides–freshwater, saltwater, large fish, small fish–it can do it all.
