The brains behind Daiwa have been producing reels even before the company’s conception in 1958, so you could say that the brand is an expert in the field. The Daiwa Tournament S (Series Black) is a re-mastered version of the classic, and the black colour is a special edition of the refined design.
This reel is based on the design of the classic Tournament 5000t reel, which is regarded by many pro anglers as one of the most rugged and reliable reels on the market – a performance pedigree which other reels can only strive for. The Black Series version offers that same performance, but with an elegant and understated appearance. The wooden handle, combined with the sleek black metal body of the reel creates a reel that has a chic and classic appearance, with all the benefits modern technology has to offer. This is a real workhorse of the reel industry, so if you’re someone who is on the bank week in, week out, tackling some of the biggest fish that your local venues have to offer then the Daiwa Tournament 5000t black is the perfect carp fishing reel for you.
The reel has a classic big pit spool, ensuring that you can load it up with line for huge distance casts or for when you’re tackling a hard-fighting fish. However, Daiwa has combined this huge spool with a lightweight and compact body design, and this reel weighs in at a mere 20.3oz. This ensures that the reel is the perfect pairing with modern hi-modulus blanks. The Daiwa Tournament 5000t (Series Black) has all the features which anglers have come to demand from a top end Daiwa tackle item, and, if you were to list off all the features you’d expect to see on a big pit carp fishing reel, than you’d find that it ticks all the boxes.
When you’re hitting huge casts, and tackling fish over a distance, then one of the most important things that a big pit reel can offer is top end line lay. This reel has been fitted with a worm gear oscillation system, slowing down the rate at which line is wound back onto your spool. The slower the line is peeled onto your reel the neater and tighter your line lay will be, and this reel is able to offer impeccable line lay. This in turn means that your line will peel off perfectly on the cast, ensuring that you’re able to achieve the kind of distances that you require when you’re targeting huge carp on massive venues. The line guard on the reel has been spring loaded, too, preventing nastyline tangles too.
The reel has been fitted with Super Duraluminium gearing. This is an ultra-durable aluminium composite material which ensures that the gearing perfectly meshes with each rotation. This gearing system is paired with a Super Metal rotor, which once again has been designed for durability and strength. As a complete system this means that every ounce of power that you push through the handle gets returned in gear rotation and the Daiwa Tournament S (Series Black) offers a 4.2:1 gear ratio. With 5 ball bearings, this reel is incredibly smooth throughout the cast and retrieve, too. What’s more, these ball bearings actually extend the life of the reel – reducing the pressure and friction on the vital moving components. As a nice bonus feature, the handle on the reel is one touch folding, so you can store this in a neat and compact manner despite its huge big pit capability.
