Daiwa Crosscast BR LD Reel
Daiwa has been producing award winning reels since the company first set up production in 1958. A brand that is built on an ethos of innovation, the company is constantly looking for ways to improve. This Crosscast BR LD is just one example of how Daiwa’s continued innovation has enabled the brand to produce unique products that really allow anglers to thrive on the bank.
The Crosscast BR LD is, in many ways, a classic big pit reel. Able to hold a huge amount of line, this reel is the ideal distance casting machine for those anglers who like to target the bigger and more aggressive fish that inhabit the larger venues up and down the country. This big pit construction comes in a compact body, weighing only 21.8oz (approximately 620g) which ensures that this reel will balance superbly on many top end carp rods to create the perfect carp fishing package.
This reel has been fitted with Daiwa’s Bite ‘n’ Run clutch system. This allows you to enjoy all the benefits of a classic free spool system whilst simultaneously giving you the kind of control you require to enable you to play carp with complete confidence. The front drag on this reel is easily adjustable, allowing micro-incremental changes thanks to its fine-tuning facility, and the reel boats an impressive 4.6:1 gearing. This enables you to drag in a whopping 104cm of line with each turn of the handle – perfect for dragging in a huge carp from far out in your chosen venue.
This isn’t the only one of Daiwa’s plethora of technologies that the reel benefits from, and you can find the likes of Twistbuster, AirBail, and Infinite Anti-Reverse – all fitted as standard on this reel. With two ball bearings this reel is smooth and a pleasure to use.
