Looking for a heavy duty baitcasting reel? Then the Daiwa Ryoga Shrapnel JDM Baitcasting Reel should be at the top of your wishlist. Utilizing Daiwa's Real Four Technology, a one piece aluminum frame, and Daiwa's Ultimate Tournament drag boasting 22lbs of drag, the Ryoga Shrapnel JDM Baitcasting Reel yields superior strength and rigidity in an extremely lightweight package.
This is by far the best reel I have ever owned, extremely smooth casting and retrieves with a perfect gear ratio for a myriad of baits and a powerful enough drag to not worry about having a big fish wrap you up.. 5 stars all the way

I'm very satisfied with my purchase of the Daiwa Ryoga Shrapnel baitcasting reel. This reel is one of the most smoothest reels I've used in a long time. The build quality and performance is similar to the Shimano Calcutta Conquest series of baitcasters, but the Shrapnel is built for bigger fish with it's larger spool capacity and bigger crank power. Let's not forget about that engaged levelwind, (I LOVE THAT THING) for casting purposes it lays and releases the line perfectly across the spool, AND EVERYTHING CLICKS!
