Daiwa Tournament – S 5000T Review

Daiwa Tournament – S 5000T

The Tournament reels are still regarded as the elite reel for big distance, big fish at home and the extremes of massive continental lakes. Their now legendary casting comes from faultless line lay on a large capacity spool, yet a compact, lightweight body makes them the perfect partner for modern hi modulus blanks, giving incredible performance with unrivalled balance.

 Classis big pit design
 Twist Buster
 Micro adjustable ten washer front drag
 Gun metal finish with polished alloy spool
 Worm gear oscillation for superb line lay
 Spring loaded line guard to prevent spool tangles
 Super Duraluminium gears and Super Metal rotor for durability and strength

Specifications
 Ratio: 4.2:1
 Weight: 20.3oz/576g
 Ball bearings: 7
 Line Capacity 330m 14lbs line

Ultra work horse that sounds like a coffee grinder

An absolute work horse of a reel. One of Daiwa's retro reels that defiantly made its mark in carp fishing history. Apart from the coffee grinder noise's this reel will last you a life time. One thing that lets this reel down its the plastic line clips, but for a small fee its well worth getting them upgraded with the metal sprung loaded ones.
