5.0 out of 5 stars Why is the Ballistic LT or the Schimano Ci4 more than this ?
By SEF on August 1, 2018
Arrived on time and in Great condition. Reel is super smooth and getting better with use. Casts extremely well and the drag is super smooth as well.

My first Diawa reel was a BG 2500 and I LOVE IT, especially because of the price. I wanted to treat myself to a high end reel and was looking at Stratics and the Diawa Ballistic. Call me old school, but I still have a thing about a reel being made of metal, the Stratic Ci4 and the Ballistic are both composite materials and this is 2018 so I am sure they are strong, and I was really close to going with the Balistic over the Stratic mostly because of the size of the gears and drag washers in the Ballistic. Both are physically larger in the Ballistic than the Stratic.

Then there is the bearing count, the Saltist has 9, Ballistic and Stratic have 7. At the particular time I was looking the Saltist was between $195 and $199 and the Balistic was anywhere from $10-20 more. I was in a total quandary as to which way to go.

Then I got one of those emails from Amazon and the Saltist went down to $145.00. That made up my mind, in my head it seemed to me that from a construction standpoint that the Saltist should be more expensive, it is slightly heavier than the Ballistic, (less than a wrist watch difference), but has more bearings, and is aluminum, so I pulled the trigger and put the extra $50 into a better rod than I had planned on getting originally. Plus the rod matches the reel and it looks SWEET and fishes like a dream.

5.0 out of 5 stars overall it is a good investment, slightly on the smaller size, still durable. Would recommend.
By Stephen on September 22, 2020
I bought this reel a couple of months back. I only had been able to test it out on smaller fish. Sand trout, catfish, perch, and even puffer fish. I even caught a stingray with it. I have recently started catching red and black drum with this reel on a 9-ft surf rod. I use 40-lb braided line and roughly get 230 to 260 yd depending on what I use. It has a maz 17 lbs Drag but have yet to used max drag. I have caught 10 red and black drum over 23 inches with this reel. They have pulled a lot of drag and it has held up very well. The last fish I caught with it was a 37 and a half inch black drum. It put up a good fight for over 15 minutes. Highly recommend this real. However I will say that I am planning on stepping up and getting the bigger size to have for bigger line, longer spooling, and stronger drag.
