Daiwa Tournament Basia Custom Reel DCR3,
With a design based on the classic distance casting Basia QD, this customised Tournament DCR3 reel offers you an improved Quick Drag system that allows you to further fine tune this already impressive reel to perfectly complement your angling style. With three finger-tip contact points, you can easily and precisely switch between a free running set up and fast front drag application.
Featuring the classic Basia handle, constructed from machine cut aluminium and finished with traditional wooden knob, this reel is understated and refined. The unique satin grey body is topped with sleek black 45mm spool and fittings, giving this reel a dark and serious appearance that is perfect for the dedicated modern angler. The DCR3 has already been taking the angling world by storm and you may well recognise its brooding form from Korda’s Masterclass DVD. If you like the look of it there, you’ll love the way it performs in your own hands. We’re able to offer you an exclusive discount on this fantastic product so why not make the most of this incredible deal and pick up a revolutionary reel that looks set to change your angling life forever?
As with all the reels in the Daiwa Custom Revolution range, technology such as AirBail (Daiwa’s patented tubular bail handle that directly leads the line to the line roller) and TwistBuster (a patented line roller design that eliminates line twist) is fitted as standard. The black line clip has no holes and is fitted with HIP (High Impact Protection) technology that aid line entry and reduces backlash from excessive shock. This is complemented by the line clip collar. Almost entirely hidden from view, this clip collar performs an important job in reducing friction wear and cushioning the braid or line as it hits the clip. With features like these, it’s clear to see why the Daiwa Tournament Basia Custom Reel DCR3 is considered a truly outstanding reel.
