Daiwa Procyon AL LT Spinning Reel – PCNALT2500D-XH - Review
The Daiwa Procyon AL LT Spinning Reel is perfect for freshwater and inshore fishing. It offers a wide range of features to meet the demands of high-performance anglers. The reel is built with a rigid all-aluminum body, which prevents flexing and keeps the internal components aligned. This increases the cranking power and torque while also extending the lifespan of the gears and bearings.
The Procyon AL LT features Daiwa's Air Rotor and Air Bail designs, which keep the reel lightweight yet strong, even under heavy drag pressures. The aluminum frame houses an oversized main gear that is precision cut with DigiGear technology. This provides better gear meshing, resulting in a smoother operation and reduced gear wear over time.
The Advanced Tournament Drag (ATD) system ensures a smooth and consistent drag pressure from the first pull. This eliminates the stop-and-go pulling of the drag that can lead to broken lines and lost fish.
The Procyon AL LT Spinning Reel incorporates several key Daiwa technologies:
- Aluminum Body: The lightweight and strong aluminum construction provides strength without the drawbacks of other metals, such as corrosion issues.
- DigiGear: The precision-cut and polished DigiGear delivers unmatched efficiency, energy transfer, and smoothness.
- Air Rotor: The Air Rotor design reduces weight by up to 15% while evenly distributing stress for maximum strength.
- Air Bail: The innovative hollow tubular stainless steel bail design offers rigidity, strength, and minimum weight. It allows for trouble-free line control and smooth operation.
- ATD Drag: The Advanced Tournament Drag system uses a proprietary grease to provide smooth and consistent start-up drag pressure, preventing broken lines and lost fish.
- ABS Long Cast Spool: The LC-ABS spool is lighter and has a modified shape, increasing average flight distance by approximately 5% compared to conventional spools.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Is the Daiwa Procyon AL LT Spinning Reel suitable for saltwater fishing?
A: The Daiwa Procyon AL LT Spinning Reel is designed for freshwater and inshore fishing. It is not recommended for use in saltwater environments as the aluminum body may be susceptible to corrosion.
