Daiwa’s latest LT spinning reels

Postby gillchaser » Thu Jun 14, 2018 9:17 pm

Looking a picking up a couple new reels and was wondering if the line capacity of these reels accurate ? Especially in the 1000 size reels . 250 yards of 4# line ? 160 yards of 6# 110 yards of 8# ?
Can anyone verify if these are true ? Kirby

Legalis 1000 LT is rated for 160 yds of 6 lb test.....so expect closer to 200 yds of 4 lb test.

Also, just saw some new Daiwa UL reels to be released at iCAST...these will be a lower price point reels....

QG 750FK
QR 750FK

Those will be 5.3 oz, 110 yds of 4 lb, 5 lb max drag

Why on earth would you need all of that line on a reel ? ... two football fields of line to cast a 1/32 - 1/16 oz bait 25' ](*,)

Got my Daiwa Exceler lt reels today. I ordered a 1000 and a 2500 . The 1000 I loaded with 4# P-Line and the spool is larger than most 1000 reels I’ve owned but I don’t think it took 250 yards to fill it . Maybe 170-180 ? Didn’t measure , I’m just guessing with how long it took to wind the line on . The 2500 is a deep spool too . I filled the spool about a third of the way with some 12 # for backing , then taped rage spool and then filled with 6# P-Line .
I oiled them a little with a few drops Lucus reel oil and they both are super smooth .
I do wish Daiwa made a 500 size reel in the LT lines . I’d be on them in a minute . Gillchaser
