Small in size yet big in performance, the new CC80H and CR80H baitcasters are tailor-made for young anglers and adults wanting to dip their toe in the world of baitcaster fishing. Classic in looks and refined in design, these new offerings from Daiwa are feature and value packed to deliver anglers a reel that’s rich in performance but not in price. The quintessential entry level baitcaster, the CC80H and CR80H are designed as good as they look, and look as good as they perform, and are two of Daiwa’s most action packed, value packed baitcasters for some time.

Striking in black and featherlight to hold, both reels feature a new compact frame (80 size) that sits unobtrusively on the rod and in the hand thanks to its streamlined, ultra low profile. The CC80 features a carbon concept (CC) frame and side plate, and four ball bearings, while the CR80 features a carbon resin (CR) frame and side and seven ball bearings.

Daiwa’s Magforce magnetic cast control system delivers unrivalled line control, with the advanced cast control system ensuring trouble-free and super easy, pin-point casts every time. Casting performance and balance is further enhanced with a lightweight, drilled, 32mm, double anodized aluminium spool, ensuring effortless spool start up and enhanced rotational balance.

The drag on both reels are equally performance driven, with 7kg of silky smooth drag giving you the stopping power to take control anywhere, anytime. Cranking power is right at hand with a 6.8:1 retrieve ratio and 90mm Swept Handle giving you optimum retrieve ratio for all-round use and performance, while the large ergonomic handle and non-slip knobs allow you to apply full power and control.

A stylish blend of beauty, compact design brilliance and value, the CC80H and CR80H is the baitcaster reel for those looking for outstanding performance at an outstanding price.
