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.

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.

Best $100 reel for spinning inshore
November 17, 2018
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.

November 13, 2018
Would the 4000 pair well with an 11' rod, rated 3 to 8 but used primarily with fishing 3 to 5 ounces. I have a Saltist 4500 which is a bit large and wondered if the 4000 size would be a better fit though I know the size of 4000 models may vary some.
1 Answer
The fuego 4000 would be to small for a 11 foot rod, I would suggest going with the 5500 Shimano Ultegra ci4+ or the 5500 Ultegra xtd

Would the Daiwa Fuego 3000 pair nicely with the shimano teramar north east inshore spinning rod medium heavy 12-25lb test line 1/2-2 ounces ? For bucktailing and some small plugs? I won’t be using anything over 3 ounces.
1 Answer
The Daiwa Fuego 3000 LT is a bit light for the style of fishing your doing. I would advise a Daiwa BG 3000 paired with the NE Teramar MH casting bucktails in that size range.
