Reels - Spin Large

In 2008 Daiwa upgrades the long running Emblem Pro with all new specifications including new colour, machined aluminium handle, extra large rubber knob and new bearings, to improve the already ideal design.

Emblems huge diameter spool was designed for maximum casting distance and superior drag performance. On top of this the Emblem boasts one of the highest retrieve rates of any reel, at a blazing 122 cm's per turn of the handle, but with a slow gear ratio, this is achieved by a huge spool diameter and cross wrapping the line. Thus it is easier to crank than a standard high speed reel.

Daiwa's Emblem Pro 5500A is one of the best saltwater spinning reels available and is the ideal reel to be matched with the amazing new Emblem Pro rods.
