Video daiwa fuego 100 review

The Daiwa Fuego CT Casting Reel is an all-around performer. Not designed for a specific presentation, the Fuego CT offers the features and functionalities to work in a wide variety of situations.

While the Fuego CT doesn’t include all of the high end features of some of the premium priced Daiwa reels, it is equipped with the best functionality Daiwa has to offer at a much lower price point than its more expensive siblings.

Great Cast Control With Braking System

The Fuego CT includes a traditional centrifugal braking system in conjunction with Daiwa’s Magforce Z magnetic cast control which offers a great, consistent casting experience especially with heavier lures. The external cast control on the Fuego CT is easily adjustable with just one finger, allowing for quick and easy adjustments on the fly.

Using the MagForce-Z cast control, anglers will find the Fuego CT provides long and smooth casts. This allows you to reach the areas of the water you need to get your lure to, without having to worry so much about backlash and birdnests.

Smooth Drag

The Fuego CT’s Ultimate Tournament Drag (U.T.D.) system is one of its most impressive features. It offers fine tuned drag settings and provides a smooth, high performance drag system.

Rated to provide 13.2 lbs of drag pressure, the U.T.D. easily handles big largemouth bass. The drag is also incredibly smooth, making for a great fighting experience when hooked up to a large fish.

Stainless Steel Anti-Reverse Bearing

The Fuego CT Casting Reel also includes a stainless steel anti-reverse bearing. This helps to provide reliability and durability when fighting fish.

The bearing is also corrosion resistant, meaning it will stay in good condition no matter how long you spend on the water.

Lightweight and Compact

The Fuego CT Casting Reel is designed to be lightweight and compact. Weighing in at only 7.6 oz, this Daiwa reel is easy to use all day long without feeling weighed down. The smaller frame is also perfect for those anglers who prefer a more compact reel.

Affordable Price

The Daiwa Fuego CT Casting Reel is one of the most affordable reels on the market today. Offering quality features and performance at a fraction of the cost of some of Daiwa’s more expensive casting reels, the Fuego CT is a great value for any angler.

Strong and Durable Design

The frame of the Fuego CT utilizes Daiwa’s special aluminum CT frame. This frame is strong and offers great durability while maintaining a light weight.

The Fuego CT is designed to stand up to the abuse that anglers dish for years.

3 Retrieve Ratios

Anglers have the choice of three different retrieve ratios with the Daiwa Fuego CT Casting Reel. This gives anglers the ability to choose the best retrieve for the fishing conditions and the specific lure they are using. The 6.3:1, 7.3:1, and 8.3:1 gears provide a good range of fishing speed options.

Swept Handle

The Fuego CT’s 90mm swept handle provides a great grip and plenty of torque when fighting big fish. The handle is also contoured to fit comfortably in your hand for extended periods of use.
