I really like this reel

I purchased this reel a couple weeks ago and was eager to try it out because of the new T-wing system. The T-wing system (TWS) advertises a 5.3% increase in casting distance while maintaining even spooling.

I took it out this past weekend in cool conditions with fair to moderate wind. The reel performed up to and beyond my expectations. I was using 8lb floro, with a 1/2oz jig. Even before fine tuning the over spooling was minimal and I only had one minor rat's nest that was my fault because of poor casting technique. This alone makes it a very good reel. It has the ability to select "Max Brake" for casts into the wind, "All Around" for most casts, and "Long Cast" for that extra length. I did most of my casting using the All Around mode and performance was as good or better than I had anticipated. I did experience longer casting lengths overall with very good control. The reel is well made and fits good in the hand with excellent grip. The action is smooth and positive.

I really wanted to purchase this year's model DAIWA T3 T31016H, but at $429 it was out of my price range so I settled for the Daiwa T3 Ballistic. The reel cost is high but thus far has performed very well and I think it was worth it; although I truly feel it is slightly over priced (15-20%). But look around and you should be able to find it around the $200 mark.

Purchased the reel during the fishing classic. The T-Wing levelwind aperture was the selling point. The reel also has a composite frame and a large number of anti backlash options. I teamed the reel with a St. Croix Rage rod and am extremely excited about the combination. The casting distance is impressive. The reel has some new technology that is certainly worth a look.

Performance is incredible! This reel casts further than advertised. Almost impossible to get a backlash.
The casting modes almost make the reel comprehend the distance of your cast.
