Daiwa Team Daiwa Tierra Spinning Reel | Model 3000 Review:
This is a smooth and powerful reel with a ton of features that works great in any condition or situation. I am very impressed with the smooth bail slap and smooth retrieve. Not only is this reel smooth it is powerful and works great when fighting trophy walleye to muscling monster cats.
Among its many features my favorite is the Twist Buster line twist reduction system. There is nothing I hate worse than fighting a ratís nest of fishing line especially in a tournament situation! It reduces line twist problems using a special collar that is designed for line to travel a specific point at a right angle to the roller pivot with a special taper. With the use of this taper, twisting of the outer line which is caused by rotor rotation can be greatly reduced giving the opposite rotation of the rotor to the line when reeling in. The result is less line twist giving the line greater strength and longer life.
This is truly a versatile reel that will maintain its position on my lead poles. Below is a key list of features:
- Washable design with waterproof drag
- Tubular stainless Air Bail
- Digigear digital gear design
- 7 ball bearings (2 corrosion-resistant), and 1 roller bearing
- Hardboyz Frame Ė aluminum alloy
- Twist Buster line twist reduction
- Infinite anti-reverse
- ABS aluminum Spool
