Love this reel. The 1000 on a 6'6 star seagis med light and have fun. Ballistic is dominating in my area.
Ballistic reels are great. Mostly have 2500s but a 1000 on a star seagis ml 6'6 rod and weighs nothing and can handle most all inshore species .

Best spinning reel made for inshore salt or fresh water. Even though called a freshwater reel it's built to withstand salt.
Diawa made a great reel again. Even the original heavier ballistic reels are great . I sold most other reels like ci4s when the LT ballistic hit the market.

Light and tough
I use this reel for jigging gulp. This 5000 sized reel is lighter then most regular 3000 sized reel. Drag is smooth and it is able to pull good sized fish into the boat.

Twisted line!
Very poor for casting jigs.. I tried for 2 days and finally gave up. Ended up going back to shimano sustain the 3rd day while on the San Juan. The line just kept twisting up with loops causing several birds nests and cutting the line to clear the tangle. If I could return reels I would do it in a heartbeat. Very disappointing.

Love ballistic reels. This new model is very light . .4 oz lighter than stradic ci4+2500
Just bought 2 2500s and love them. Lighter than ex models and $30 more but well worth it.

What are the 30lb (I use J braid and Sufix 832) braid capacities for the 3000, 4000, and 5000 sizes?
1 Answers
Unfortunately, Daiwa only lists mono capacity. Braid capacity is determined from approximation. Here are the mono capacity ratings for the 3000, 4000, and 5000 size reels. 3000: MONO: 12/220, 16/160, 20/130 4000: MONO: 16/220, 20/160, 25/140 5000: MONO: 16/250, 20/195, 25/140 Hope this helps, thank you for considering TackleDirect for your fishing needs.

I am thinking about a ballistic LT for my trevala tvs66mh rod, but not sure if I should go with 5/6000 size. Thanks
1 Answers
Either size would work with the rod. I'd suggest going with the 5000 so long as you will be able to get a sufficient line capacity with the desired line you are using. The 5000 size line capacity is as follows, 16/250, 20/195, 25/140 (monofilament). The 6000 size line capacities are 20/270, 25/225, 30/160 (mono).

What is the weight and line capacity for the BLSLT6000D-C? Also would like a size comparison of each reel size compared to each other and other reels also. Thanks
1 Answers
The 6000 size weighs 11.1 oz. The braid capacity is 540/50 450/65 320/80. Daiwa tends to runs large with their sizing on other models, however the Ballistic LT is consistent in its sizing to other manufacturers such as Penn and Shimano. In other words, it is a true 6000 size.
