The Daiwa Ballistic MQ LT Stand-Out Features

ZAION-V Monocoque (MQ) One-Piece Body Design

There’s a lot of materials out there in fishing reels but this material allows Daiwa to take a lightweight, rigid material and bring it down to affordable price points.

Gear System

The main gear used to be the size of a nickel and now it’s the size of a silver dollar.

This gear is not just a beauty ring, it’s tough and durable.

You still get the 6.2:1 gear ratio and the same inches per turn, but you can turn the handle much easier with the larger gear.

And there’s much less resistance on the retrieve (especially when you’re fighting a big fish).

This translates into more torque and more power.

MAGSEALED Technology

It’s water-tight and air-tight.

This reel is ready to take on your toughest fight!

Thanks Justin! Great looking reel, I may have to look into getting one in November for my Birthday. Curious though why the Saltist MQ won over the Ballistic MQ.

Great job!
Saw a similar post but please do an in depth comparison with the Saltist MQ vs Ballistic MQ. Why is the Saltist so much more? Just going by the short marketing blurb, I don’t see the difference??

Thanks Justin but I thought the Ballistic also had the Magseal tech?
