Check out the new Daiwa Legalis LT spinning reel. See how the 20’ Legalis LT Daiwa offers the highest quality standards at an incredible price-performance ratio. Daiwa once again impressively proves that silky smooth working and highest toughness do not necessarily have to come along with great costs. Since the new 20’ Daiwa Legalis LT series is based on the well established LT concept

Sensational offer with LT design: Light, strong and reliable!

The new 2021 Daiwa Legalis LT features Daiwa’s rigid LT body (light, yet tough) constructed from a carbon-based composite that is much lighter than conventional materials, yet very durable. The Air Rotor and Air Bail also contribute to a much greater strength to weight ratio, making the Daiwa Legalis LT lighter and easier to handle without fatigue over the long course of a full day of demanding fishing.

By shrinking the Daiwa Legalis LT size and using the novel and innovative Zaion V material Daiwa succeeded at reducing the Daiwa Legalis LT’s weight even further – as a consequence the 20’ Legalis LT 2500 weights only incredible 200 grams! The Zaion V composite additionally contributes to an increased toughness and an improved transmission of the retrieving power.

The Tough Digigear with enlarged drive wheel is the key asset for the smooth running and utmost resilience. The ATD drag provides highest sensitivity and works without starting resistance.

Daiwa Legalis LT

According to the respective size, the 20’ Legalis series is the proper choice for numerous applications like spin fishing, feeder fishing, light trout fishing or even specimen hunting for tench, bream & Co.

Offering the benefits of Daiwa engineering at a fantastic value, the Daiwa Legalis LT Spinning Reels are for those who demand high performance at an agreeable price.

The Daiwa Legalis LT has received a facelift for 2021 with sleek new blue and slate gray cosmetics and all the proprietary Diawa features that have made the Legalis LT a favorite among anglers of all skill levels.

Built around Daiwa’s “Light and Tough” concept, the new Legalis LT is constructed from a carbon-based composite that is much lighter than conventional materials, yet very durable. The Air Rotor and Air Bail also contribute to a much greater strength to weight ratio, making the reels lighter and easier to handle without fatigue over the long course of a full day of fishing.

Other features such as Advanced Tournament Drag and a precision cut Digigear main gear make the new Daiwa Legalis LT a fine choice for a wide variety of spinning reel applications.

Daiwa Legalis LT Features:

AIR BAIL
Daiwa’s innovative bail design features a hollow tubular stainless steel bail that delivers maximum rigidity and strength with minimum weight. Featuring a smooth protrusion-free design and construction line easily slides unencumbered along the Air Bail towards the line roller for trouble free line control.

The Airbail reel handle is hollow and thus very lightweight, extremely strong and exceptionally resilient. The special, strengthening construction prevents the twisting of the line around the bail, which was a big problem for spin anglers in the past.

ZAION AIR ROTOR
Lighter, stronger and more balanced than any rotor system that’s come before, ‘Air Rotor’ delivers a great leap forward in rotor design and function and delivers the ultimate reel sensitivity and rotational balance.

The magnetic oil barrier does not only prevent the intrusion of water, it also increases the ease of motion and the delicacy of feeling of the Daiwa Legalis LT. You feel better connected to the lure, detect softer bites and experience more sensitivity during the fight with the fish. Especially for this new feeling Daiwa developed the “Air rotor”.

First, the enormous strains, which affect the rotor via the line and the line roller are better distributed. This causes less pressure on the single parts of the rotor. Second, the new rotor is 15% more light weighted than usual rotors of the same material – this reduces vibrations and enhances the rotational balance thanks to a very low center of gravity.

Under the same strain, a conventional rotor is much more distorted than an Air Rotor, since here the strain is scattered over the whole rotor and not concentrated to one point

ATD-DRAG
Daiwa’s Automatic Tournament Drag uses an improved drag grease that exhibits a low viscosity at rest, yet becomes more viscous immediately after drag start up. This reduces initial drag start-up inertia and combined with the structural changes of the ATD Drag System results in a smoother drag from the initial hook up.

ATD stands for the further development of the UTD drag. The ATD drag is excelled by an even more delicate drag transition and as a consequence thereof is perfectly suited for the use of braided lines. Contrasting to the UTD drag, at the ATD already at the beginning of a strike the drag starts smoothly, then increases to its pre-set drag rating in a fraction of a second, thus eliminating line breakage at the strike.

Daiwa have combined a variety of improvements; internal spool support, shaft construction and drag knob surface area to toughen and enhance even further what ATD delivers. Daiwa Legalis LT reels provide a astonishing level of improved max. drag power, even so they are reduced in size and lightweight.

ZAION V BODY
An incredibly strong carbon based composite material, lighter and tougher than ordinary graphite, and unlike metal doesn’t corrode.

Zaion is an excellent material developed by DAIWA to built reel bodies and rotors. The big advantage of this material is its lightness and solidity – you will feel this. Zaion is a kind of ‘High Density’ carbon strain material, which is made for highest performance and to resist maximum impact.

Due to Zaion, it is possible to construct a lightweight reel body that durably supports the gearing. The strength of Zaion corresponds to magnesium and is 20% stronger than Nylon/ABS material, usually used for reel bodies. Zaion is about 50% lighter than aluminium.

TOUGH DIGIGEAR
Daiwa’s first generation of digitally engineered gear design ensures a perfect mesh between ultra-tough drive gear and pinion gears for optimized speed, power, durability and smoothness.

Machined, digitally developed gearing for maximum performance and endurance. It smoothly and efficiently transmits the power of the handle directly to the rotor.

Our DAIWA engineers completely perfected the technology of milled gears with the Digigear II. The shape and surface of the gear teeth enable the construction of gears with extraordinary smooth running, smallest resistance and extremely long lifespan.

Keeping the merits of DIGIGEAR, Daiwa considered how to make the gear tougher than ever. Daiwa studied all aspects; diameter, thickness, teeth shape and size. Daiwa experimented and tested everything one by one, refining and improving each element. The result is a leap in the level of DIGIGEAR toughness.

PIN THROUGH HANDLE
An inline, pin-through handle assembly makes handle removal and installation simple and quick, with the handle inserted through the Daiwa Legalis LT then secured into place with a threaded screw cap.

ALUMINUM AIR SPOOL
By completely reconsidering the spool shape, size and thickness Daiwa achieved a drop in spool weight, creating a very light aluminium spool. This is lighter than our current Air Spool made from ABS, and noticeably enhances the Daiwa Legalis LT balance.

SILENT OSCILLATION SYSTEM
By the special position and bearing of the oscillation-gear wheels, Daiwa improved the smoothness of the gear in comparison to usual systems of similar construction.

INFINITE ANTI REVERSE
A weak part of many reels – the most reliable part of a DAIWA reel. Only high quality parts made of steel with smallest tolerances are used.

Daiwa Legalis LT is a true reel for the masses – the brand-new 21 Daiwa Legalis LT incorporating ZAION V construction. The heart of this redesign is Daiwa’s brand-new ZAION V material. Upgrading the Daiwa Legalis LT significantly from the previous Carbon Light body, ZAION V is not only lighter but also much stronger, delivering a reel body with minimal flex and movement and increased durability especially in larger reel sizes.
