The Daiwa Exceler Baitcast Combo has many great features. The 6.5' rod is durable and has high modulus IM-6 graphite blanks and aluminum oxide guides. The rod is paired with the EXC100H Exceler reel. This reel's eight ball bearings and one roller bearing make it incredibly smooth. And, it has a comfortable handle to reel in that big catch! This combo is a great deal that you just can't pass up!
