Hello. How does this reel compare to the Fuego 3000 Lt?

No Mag Seal and the boring t-handle, there’s better options. On the positive side 22# of drag in a 3000 is always nice to have. For that price it seems spending the extra $20-30 dollars on a Saltist, Saltist Back Bay, Ballistic, or my favorite Osprey CE would be the better choice. Just my .02. Tight Lines!!

I like the fact it has the ATD but concerned on using it inshore without having the Magsealed bearings. Spec wise the Fuego LT would be a better choice inshore, except for the lack of ATD. Comments????

The Procyon AL is definitely a jump from the Fuego in terms of rigidity/durability and strength. While both the Fuego and the Procyon AL offer ATD, the Fuego does not incorporate Carbon Fiber drag, which means after many, many fish there is a good chance the drag on the Fuego will get “sticky” due to the felt washers smoothing out over time. This won’t occur with Carbon Fiber stacks long term. Additionally, the Aluminum body of the Procyon will ensure there is no flex when under load, which might happen with a big fish on the Fuego. For everyday, casual Inshore fishing, the Fuego is a great option. But jumping up to the Procyon AL allows you a better opportunity to handle some sketchier situations when hooked up into a big fish next to structure because of the rigid Aluminum body. Having a Magsealed bearing near the AR clutch on a reel is a nice feature, but often not needed for most inshore anglers when fishing docks/flats/oyster bars, etc.

My two Procyon AL reels are my favorite. I have them paired with Daiwa Tatula rods. I’m far from a Daiwa fanboy, and I own some more expensive reels from Penn and Shimano, but the Procyon AL reels have the perfect balance of stiffness and light weight, and ATD does exactly what it’s supposed to do in managing the drag automatically for me as I’m fighting a fish.

Looks nice. Do you know what the gears are made from? Cast zinc or aluminum? Also, are the 2500s and the 3000s basically the same size with different line capacities or is the 3000 a larger reel? Thanks

Awesome question, Alan. The Procyon AL has a Zinc gear, but given that Daiwa does such an exceptional job at precisely cut (and oversized) gears, their Zinc gears are still a force to be reckoned with. As for sizing differences, the 2500 and 3000 are incredibly close in size, but yes the 3000 will allow for more line capacity.

I love mine, a Christmas present from my wonderful husband. Paired with a 6.5 foot med heavy Toadfish rod it is a well balanced kayak set up. Cast a country mile and smooth drag when I finally find a nice red.

Excellent! An excellent inshore reel. I believe that it is a tiny bit heavier than the Shimano Stradic but you get an aluminum body and a similar drag. If I didn’t already have the Stradic, the Daiwa with the Insider discount would be a winner. Thanks for the review.

What is “automatic ” 22 pounds tournament drag?

Kris Kipping

Reply to  Nathan Meushaw

From Daiwa’s site: “Daiwa’s Automatic Tournament Drag uses an improved drag grease that exhibits a low viscosity at rest, yet becomes more viscous immediately after drag start up. This reduces initial drag start-up inertia and combined with the structural changes of the ATD Drag System results in a smoother drag from the initial hook up.”

ATD or Automatic Tournament Drag is the newest introduction into DAIWA spinning reels. On one level ATD implements structural changes to the spool metal of the reel that provides greater support of the spool across the entire length of the main shaft.

This additional support of the spool reduces spool twist under load, promotes more even pressure on the drag washers and ultimately reduces “pulsing” of the drag when fighting the fish.

It’s Daiwa’s fancy Corporate term for, it’s got a really nice drag. It works much the same same as all the others it’s just silky smooth.

All of the comments below are correct. It’s Daiwa’s use of a custom low-friction grease to allow for a smoother (and more consistent) drag.

ATD accomplishes two things:

  1. It smooths the drag (as others have already mentioned) by smoothly (but quickly) ramping up the drag strength in the initial split-second of the pull, to reduce the chance of line breakage while you’re setting the hook.
  2. It then decreases the drag automatically if the line force continues to be high, in order to further reduce the chance of breakoff.

From my understanding of Daiwa’s literature, the drag grease exhibits non-Newtonian traits (like Silly Putty). Its viscosity increases quickly when friction is applied. But then when it heats up, its viscosity goes down.

My two main reels are Procyon ALs. I absolutely love the reels, and ATD works exactly as I’ve explained above — and to me, it’s been a game changer.
