That magnetic oil system, which was only offered in their high-end Saltiga and Isla series, is now available in the entire price range of Daiwa reels, including the new Ballistic EX (MSRP $200) and Procyon EX (MSRP $150) models. That means all Daiwa customers will have the benefit of a smoother reel that lasts longer with less maintenance.
For Daiwa reels I use the “special” oil provided in the reel box for the spool bearings as the user manual recommends. For the lubrication of other parts Daiwa recommends that you use regular reel oil. Quantum Hot Sauce, Abu Garcia reel oil, Ardent reel oil, or Shimano reel oil is adequate. Daiwa Needle Nose Oiler And Reel Oil. The Daiwa Needle Nose Reel Oiler is just the ticket when you need just the right amount of oil applied to an exact spot in your reel. The long thin needle will reach into tight spots and help ensure you are not over-lubing your reel.
Reel Schematics for every manufacturer. Please note: We have updated alot of the schematic links recently and it will take some time for the search index to complete. You'll also find Daiwa's Advanced Tournament Drag System (ATD)—lubricated by their proprietary grease formula—to be smooth as butter. With cold-forged, precision-milled Digigear™ design and optimized meshing between the main and pinion gears, the Crossfire LT reels sleek and easy.
