The all new EXCELER LT - Daiwa uses a carbon fiber body called ZAION V. The new version is 3%-5% lighter than our current EXCELER for comparable sizes. It also comes with an AIRDRIVE ROTOR & AIRDRIVE BAIL like our version on the EXIST—are tubular but they’re not on the EXCELER. We went to a solid bail wire for its rigidity and resistance to bending during normal use, the thinner, smaller wire is also lighter, which reduces the weight of the rotation, thus reducing the weight of the reel.
It's machined aluminum handle is a comfortable, strong connection to the main gear of the spinning reel. And the retooled EXCELER is extremely smooth utilizing 5 ball bearings and 1 roller bearing to maximize performance.
