Daiwa Ryoga 1520 L-CC
The round baitcasting reel has become a staple on the fresh and saltwater scene and Daiwa has raised the standard to state of the art with the new Ryoga. Its G1 Duralumin spool is 1.3 times stronger than standard aircraft grade aluminum, and 2 times stronger than magnesium. The Magforce Z braking system allows the spool to start faster and spin longer, increasing casting distance while virtually eliminating backlashes. The new Hyper Mesh Gearing System increases gear contact up to 50% more and the Ultimate Tournament Drag (UTD) provides lasting stopping power. A Magsealed bearing prevent water and dirt intrusion. 4 models: 1016H, 1520H,1520L, 1520CC, 1520CC, the latest has a 5.4:1 gear ratio (61cm/handle turn), weighs 9.5 oz (270g), host 110 yards of 20 lb line or 230m or PE#2 and offers 6 kilos max drag. The new Ryoga won the Award of the Best Baitcasting Reel during the latest Efttex tackle exhibition in Amsterdam last june !
