Fans of Daiwa’s Procaster X front drag reel will be glad to hear that this model is now also available as a rear drag version.
Known as the Procaster X Fast Drag, it has the ability to change its clutch settings in just a split second thanks to the new ‘fast drag’ lever at the rear of the reel. This means that you can continuously make fine adjustments as you play a fish.
It sells for just £49.99, but has an impressively smooth retrieve thanks to its eight ball bearings and high gear ratio of 5.2:1.
Features such as AirBail and Twist Buster make the reel very reliable. It comes with a spare aluminium match spool.
The reel comes in three sizes perfectly suited to heavy waggler and feeder work.
