A smartly priced reel that can match the performance of many more expensive models. The Carbon Light Material Housing was designed with the LT concept of light but tough, in mind. The carbon based material is light yet very strong making the reel easy to manage over the long haul. A machined aluminum handle is a comfortable, strong connection to the main gear of the spinning reel. The Air Rotor and Air Bail designs reduce the weight, yet efficiently disperse the pressure of the line over the bail to the whole part. The reel is extremely smooth utilizing 5 ball bearings and 1 roller bearing to maximize performance. In a world of you get what you pay for, the Daiwa Exceler LT series of reels gives you more design technology and concept than reels twice the price.

I bought two of these reels for my wife paired with Daiwa Presso rods and she loves them, won't fish with anything else.
If you want a quality spinning reel at an affordable price...in my opinion, this is the best one you can get! I have been using the Exceler line of Daiwa spinning reels for over decade now, and they are awesome! Smooth drag, good castability...just a good, dependable, quality reel. I only complaint about the new LT reels...I prefer the paddle style grip on the handle, and Daiwa only put it on the 3000 and 4000, not the 2500. Other than that, I love these reels!
