The Daiwa Fuego LT series of spinning reels define Daiwa’s commitment to the LT concept of lighter, tougher fishing reels for anglers worldwide. Encased in a carbon material body, the Fuego LT spinning reel boasts various state-of-the-art technologies and materials that make it a premier value at its price point. The innovative MagSealed main shaft delivers supreme smoothness and performance while providing exceptional protection from water, dirt, and grime intrusion.

Housed inside the light and tough body of the Fuego LT, you’ll find DigiGearing that provides more strength and smooth, durable operation. The unique Air Rotor and Air Bail, like all parts of the Fuego LT, combine to reduce weight and provide velvety rotation that is perfectly balanced. From top to bottom, inside out, the Daiwa Fuego LT Spinning Reel provides incredible value and performance anglers of all types will appreciate.

Daiwa Technology Found In Fuego LT Reels :
  • Air Rotor - The Air Rotor weighs up to 15% less than ordinary rotor designs. Its unique shape reduces unnecessary weight while distributing stress more evenly throughout the rotor for maximum strength.
  • DigiGear - The all-new DigiGear is precision machine cut and polished. This results in unmatched efficiency, better transfer of energy, and maximum smoothness.
  • LT Concept - The LT family of reels boast a smaller, lighter, more compact body which is paired with a larger DigiGear for the ultimate combination of Light and Tough.
  • MagSeal - MagSeal is the process of using MagOil, a special liquid developed through space engineering, to create a water and dust resistant barrier. Unlike rubber seals, MagOil will not effect the rotational performance of a reel. This creates a seal that allows the reel to maintain a light and smooth rotation for optimal performance.

I got the 2500D-XH with a Fuego rod. The reel performed very well and caught three 3lb. bass with no problem. The reel is very smooth, cast great, and has great drag. If you're in the market for a spinning reel that is decently price this is your best option.
Proscasting, smooth, and great drag.

I use this reel for both freshwater bass fishing and surf fishing. Constantly impressed that it retails for under $100. The reel is very lightweight for the price and I love that it comes in a 6.2:1 gear ratio. The magseal seems to work well, I've only rinsed this reel off after surf fishing and have no problems with the internals.
ProsLightweight Magsealed

Great reel and favorite inshore in that price range

The fuego LT is a really smooth n nice all around reel . I think it's the best $100 reel for inshore /freshwater fishing. Drag strength not great so I'd move up to the ballistic for that . Still a great reel and I fish with 3-4 all the time.

Built well and similar to the ballistic . Looks a lot like it just doesn't have the drag power but will still handle bout all u want if you can fish . Love the 1000 n 2500 models.
ProsLow price for quality
1 Question & 1 Answer
from NJ asked:
March 19, 2018
What's the line capacity, weight and drag spec for FGLT4000D-C? would it be suitable for fluke, tautog, maybe striper around jetty/beach/pier, or BG is a better reel for those type of applications?
1 Answer
The line capacities are 10 lb mono 330 m and 12 lb mono 230 m. The weight of the reel is 8.5 oz and has a max drag of 26 lbs. For the style of fishing your doing i would prefer the BG model over the Fuego model. The Bg reel is durable and can handle a variety more saltwater fishing situations than the Fuego can handle.
