Redesigned and upgraded with some of Daiwa's premier technologies, the Daiwa Ballistic LT MQ Spinning Reels set a new standard for spinning reels in their class. The Ballistic LT MQ further enhances Daiwa's "Light and Tough" concept by implementing their signature Monocoque Body (MQ) design for even more power in a more compact frame. A feature brought down from Daiwa's flagship level of spinning reels, Monocoque Body refers to the use of a one-piece frame and reel body. A single piece body allows for exceptional strength and rigidity, improved water resistance with the absence of screws, and significant weight reduction. Perhaps best of all, the MQ frame design provides better spatial efficiency and allows for a larger gear to fit inside of the reel, adding power and longevity to the gear set. The frame is built from a new material called Zaion-V; a more easily machined compound than Daiwa's standard Zaion. Very similar in function to Zaion, Zaion-V is extremely durable, lightweight, corrosion resistant, and can be implemented into a wider range of reels. The Ballistic LT MQ features a Magsealed main shaft for exceptional durability and resistance to water intrusion. With sizes ranging from 1000 to 4000, this new generation of Daiwa Ballistic is poised to handle anything from freshwater fishing for bass or walleye to inshore fishing for powerful game fish along any coast.

Great reel … light weight
May 25, 2022
This reel is light weight and has great spool capacity… better capacity than what Daiwa is offering in Japan. Well made, smooth and quiet reel. I use it for surfcasting paired with a Shimano 11 f M rod.
  • Light weight
  • Smoothness
  • Heavy bail wire
  • Maybe better sealing? IP6 level preferred
