Spinning Reel Daiwa Ballistic LT made in Japan....

Reels are the hottest topic for TackleTour. Everyone wants to know what the latest and greatest is and how they compare to the old guard. What's the best for light stuff, or what's your suggestion for heavy cover. Do we really need different retrieve ratios? It's all in here.

Hi Guys,

Just to share the newest Ballistic LT that is made in Japan and it is less than USD200.

Might be Japan model. Looking at current Daiwa lineup only steez/exist reels are made in japan in spinning.

Only one I ever saw in a shop (Hot Springs, AR) had the "Made in China" in little white letters on top of the reel seat. I hope if these are made in Japan they come with a true schematic. Someone told me the Tatula LT just had it printed on the box... That is sub KastKing ultimate Busch league if true...

You'll likely find a Made in China sticker on the reel's foot when you receive your new LT. The reels from the 3 LT series (JDM Caldia, JDM Tatula, AUDM Sol) that I've handled so far all have that sticker.
