The Daiwa 2017 Fuego CT are a versatile, saltwater ready, 205grams, series of bait casting fishing reels that can hold up to 120m of 12lbs fluorocarbon main line, and are offered in two gear speed ratios of 6.3:1 and 7.3:1 options, in left and right hand configurations.

Equipped with Daiwa’s Mag Force Z magnetic brake system and Ultimate Tournament Drag (UTD) system, the Fuego CT exhibits excellent cast control and spool braking without exhibiting drag stickiness even at 5kg max drag settings.

This coupled with the reels precision clutch system, gives the Fuego CT its sturdy feel.

Cranking power is achieved with the reel’s pairing with a 90mm machine cut handle and comfortable I shaped knobs that provides for a firm grip.

The Fuego CT bait casting reels use an ultra-thin but rigid duralumin spool (0.34mm material thickness) that not only contributes to line sensitivity, but allows for the casting of finesse sized lures, making this reel ideal for saltwater rock fishing.

The reel’s all aluminium Super Metal Frame, is easily maintained after a day’s use, and any salt residue collected can be washed off under a running tap.
