Daiwa Exceler 100H Bait Caster

Recommended Posts

These have been out a while now. What's the consensus on them? I'm thinking on purchasing a couple to try out. I'm pretty impressed with the fact that there's a burner 7.1:1 in the group. I've heard that they're very nice reels for the $70 price range.

I 've played around with one a couple of regular models a couple of times and let me say that I 'm impressed so far, it reminds me of the Procaster 6+1, casts very nice, very smooth, feels tight and well built, looks really cool ( very futuristic ), it 's quite heavy but I don 't think you can get such a nice baitcaster for 70 bones.

I am not sure if it has the same drag set up as the megaforce- if it does that drag system is pretty crapy- that drag is very inconsistant- you tighten it up good but as soon as enough force is made for it to give line it is like having no drag at all- catching fish over 2Lbs is a challenge with the all or nothing drag system- I bought 3 to have extra "burner" reels not one of them are on a rod now- A good drag is a must and a challenge when going low end.

I recently purchased one , it performed great untill my last fishing trip,the thumb bar would not release unless you pushed it back up manually, i have just used it a minimum of 2 months, you could shake it and hear several things moving around inside , needless to say i did return it and i bought a Revo ,  

i was dissapointed, as i do like daiwa products,i thought this was a keeper, but i may have just got a bad one.

as far as the drag it worked fine , but again i just had it a little over 2 months.

I haven' had any problems with mine (knock knock), drag or otherwise. I've pulled several Lake Fork fatties with it and no issues with the drag whatsoever. I like the reel myself and for $70, it's hard to beat. Much better than the Megaforce, though not near as good as the Revo.

I did no research on baitcasters and was in cabella's and picked it out of the bunch for the price range i wanted. Its my first baitcaster and i am very pleased. As stated the drag kinda sucks but i havnt had any problems it is just inconsistant on settings. The spool tension knob is very sensitive, and the brakes work great. Mine is the 6:3:1. For a beater i like it. I will deff upgrade and have it for a back up

I have one and it is awesome! Got mine for $60 and I can't believe how nice it is for that price. I've only used it on a couple of trips so far, but I really beat the hell out of it and it took the abuse no sweat. There is many better reels out there, but not in that price range!

I have one of these and for the price it's pretty awesome! It was my first baitcaster and I have since purchased the td sol and the high speed steez, Daiwa products are awesome.

you'll like this even more haha i was flipping a blugill tonight haha held up fine had the tension knob tight as heck. no birdsnest with braid.

I am really happy with mine. I just wish it let you know the setting. nothing clicks besides the brake. I like knowing that stuff so i can reproduce how i like the settings of drag and tension.
