Daiwa Presso 21

Post by Firstoutfisher » Mon Sep 20, 2021 4:08 pm

Looks like daiwa is coming out with a new JDM presso reel soon. Anyone else see this? Thoughts? Was planning on picking up a cardiff c14 or luvias airity FC but may wait for this, falls right between the 2 price wise.

i have been looking at the presso as well, i bought a luvias airity last winter and i love that reel, so light and smooth (i have the 2000p) matches up with the megabass destroyer p5 baby plugging amazingly. i would get another airity no question, though the zaion MQ reels do intrigue me some, i will probably pick up a ballistic MQ when they come out to try them out.

Isn't the ballistic MQ the exact same reel as a tatula LT except with magseal? For ultra finesse applications I don't like magseal reels.They don't seem to be as smooth and require more startup inertia.

Had one on pre-order for a while but release date has been delayed. Pretty sure the 21 Presso is made in China. I am curious to see how it performs with the oil filled bearings. Just hoping it is equal to or better than the 2017 Presso I have. Will do review on my YouTube channel when it comes in.

The Ballistic LT was essentially the same reel with a few extras, the Ballistic MQ has just come out or close to being on sale and it has a totally different frame. My issue with the Ballistic models (new MQ and older LT like the Tatula) is that they do not have a smaller size with a faster ratio. If you want a 6 ratio, the line capacity is that of a light inshore reel. The reels are still light and fairly compact, just hellacious deep spools on the 2500XH models.

yup the mq is completely new, introduced at icasat and not out yet, with the mq frame. the older ballistic lt was basically a tatula with magseal. it actually excites me that the ballistic is available in a 2500 deep spool with a 5.x:1 ratio, i much prefer a slower reel and most reels in the US are 6:1. hopefully they come out soon!

Oh, I didnt realize that. I wonder if they will make the new ballistic in a 1000s configuration. Anyway, looking forward to seeing how the new PRESSO performs. Would be nice to have a new more affordable higher end trout reel.
