Ballistic EX

Daiwa’s legendary Real Four sets the groundwork for the new Ballistic courtesy of its Real Engine, Real Control, Real Endurance and Real Custom engineering excellence. Proven design brilliance meets new age technology with a Zaion body delivering unrivalled lightness, strength, sensitivity and corrosion resistance.

A high-density resin and carbon material, Zaion exceeds the strength of traditional reel body materials such as magnesium and alloy, and is lighter and stronger than a reel made with similar resins or graphites.

An advancement in gear design and construction, Digigear II features a high-precision cutting technique that achieves perfect gear meshing and ultra smooth performance. Made from super strong, corrosion resistant alloy, it allows for lighter and stronger gears and flawless gear meshing and operation.

Gear stability, power and smoothness is enhanced, with Daiwa’s Engine Plate technology providing direct pressure either side of the bearings and gears of the main body to enable the perfect meshing of gears.

Advanced in design and flawless in action the Ballistic EX is top gear performance that delivers on all levels.


Sealed to protect, Mag Seal slams the door shut on reel destroying elements like never before. A revolutionary new system that changed reel design forever when it was introduced in 2010, Mag Seal involves scientifically designed magnetized oil that forms a  seal that reduces dust, water and salt intrusion, and eliminates oil spray associated with traditional non-magnetized seals.

Light as air and as strong as steel, Daiwa’s Air Rotor delivers balance, weightlessness and strength for ultimate reel balance and performance.

Daiwa’s waterproof drag provides ultimate stopping power and protection in all weather conditions, with smooth, seamless start up and braking power allowing to dictate terms to anything that crosses your angling path.

Technology to feel, refinement to impress, and power and precision to perform, the Ballistic EX delivers quality that has to be seen to be believed.
