Verdict on the Ballistic LT, after hours of reading:

Reasons to buy this reel

  • One of the finest models in the LT series
  • Built with a Zaion body - a strong carbon resin that is rigid but light
  • The Ballistic uses Daiwa's ABS spool, which has a large arbor diameter that increases in size toward the top of the spool. This helps reduce any sort of loops formed in the line in the spool
  • DigiGear system involves digitally developed gearing for greater endurance and rotational smoothness
  • Various size options for different situations. The 1000 or 2000 would make epic options for finesse tactics
  • Many years of comfortable fishing are guaranteed with the Ballistic LT!

Reasons not to buy this reel

  • This reel falls on the pricey side

Bottom line

The Ballistic LT is a lightweight but tough spinning reel that provides an epic experience on the water.

This reel comes at a high price, but it is said to compete with the best spinning reels on the market. This reel works equally well in all kinds of conditions and can be used for various techniques with effect. A world class option if your budget allows.
