When Daiwa designed the Team Daiwa Advantage–HSTA Baitcasting Reel they really thought about what an avid angler would want. It was quite simple if you think about it; durability, low-profile, powerful, and the ability to cast effortlessly, and that is exactly what the Team Daiwa Advantage-HSTA Baitcasting fishing reel is. With its super tough and durable one piece aluminum frame and sideplate, a lightweight, drilled, free floating aluminum spool, and an incredible gear ratio this reel will perform for you at all times. It also features Daiwa’s Magforce-Z automatic magnetic anti-backlash and Infinite Anti-Reverse which both will allow your reel to function without a hitch. There is a swept handle on these Daiwa Baitcsting Reel with dual soft touch hand grips. This handle will produce much less wobble, and gives you maximum winding power and a better feel. In the “guts” of this reel you will find 10 premium, high performance stainless steel ball bearings with one roller bearing; as well as a rugged six point drive train. Both of these features allow your retrieve to be smooth as silk. You are able to adjust the drag with such ease on this reel due to the fact that it has a super drag, which has a seven disc wet drag system that is composed of Daiwa’s fiber composite and stainless steel washers. When you go out on the water with this reel you can be 100% confident that you have a great reel to work with.
