Ultimate Tournament Drag:

The real's drag washers are manufactured to give it a long life. They are made of high density weaved fiber and come with special oil, which if used as recommended, reduces heat resulting from friction and gives the reel a maximum of 15.4 lbs, sufficient to bring the fish home.

Note that every angler will check the maximum drag capacity because it determines whether he wins or loses the war against the fish. Ultimate tournament drag is higher and has a great break off potential thus it is designed to meet the needs of all anglers.

Aluminium Spool:

The Daiwa Coastal TWS reel comes with A7075 Aircraft Grade Aluminum Spool that is light weighted but quite durable. The spool is designed in such a way that it easier on the bearings and spins longer.

Remember the line lay is important since it determines how fast the reel is. Also, the size and the width of the spool is critical in determining the length of the line to be used. The strong and powerful aluminum spool gives Daiwa Coastal TWS reel sufficient casting distance and retrieval rate that makes it the darling of saltwater anglers.
