The Daiwa Ryoga Baitcasting Reel is one of those pieces of fishing equipment that every angler should try. Of course that won't happen for several reasons, the main one being the cost but fishing a Ryoga will put a smile on your face. It's packed with a ton of features including an aluminum body, Duralumin free floating spool, Hyper Mesh gearing system, MagSealed ball bearings, Magforce Z cast control and more, but that doesn't tell the whole story. The Ryoga is the pinnacle of what a baitcasting reel can be. Hold it in your hand and you will instantly realize why this reel is special. Years ago Daiwa released the Pluton, which is the forbearer of this reel. It was ahead of its time, high priced and amazing, just like the Ryoga. If you love fishing freshwater for bass with swimbaits, or you love inshore fishing for fluke in the bay, this reel will take your fishing to new heights. It will not only help you catch more fish but you will have a lot more fun doing it. Words don't do this reel justice. So come into J&H and ask one of the guys behind the counter if you can see the Ryoga. You will have a new appreciation for baitcasting reels, and for Daiwa's engineers.
Daiwa Ryoga Baitcasting Reels are available in four models. Three of these are right handed and one is left handed. All models have a 6.3:1 gear ratio except for the CC model which has a 5.4:1 gear ratio. They are black and made in Japan.
Models: RYOGA1016H, RYOGA1520H, RYOGA1520L, RYOGA1520CC
