Daiwa Fuego LT 5000
- Brand: Daiwa
The Fuego is currently Daiwa's cheapest Mag-Seal reel! What that basically means is that the important internal workings are better protected from sand and salt than non-mag-seal models. For less than £100, you would never in have predicted that they were such good value when first picking one up. With all the smoothness of a much higher model, these are the perfect lure reels for when good line control is required. They're light too - being part of the new LT range of reels from Daiwa. Light and Tough. They're compact but with monster gears inside compared to a lot of the competition. You won't be disappointed.
This 5000 size is the equivalent of roughly a "standard" 3000 sized Daiwa, or 4000 size Shimano. Well suited to longer bass rods or shorter, more powerful rods for the boat. The 5000 isn't too dissimilar to the 4000, but has a wider spool.
"Mag-Sealed sub-£100 perfection."
