Daiwa breaks another mold with its introduction of the new Coastal TWS 200 Inshore Saltwater Baitcasting Reel. Built with both beauty and purpose, this reel will put quick work to your average size bay bass or legal halibut. In addition, it offers the casting distance with its branded TWS (T Wing System) technology to reach those honey holes. The Coastal TWS also offers the fighting power to handle those bigger fish with its inclusion of the patented Ultimate Tournament Drag System. Its 15.4 maximum drag capacity is enough to handle almost any inshore target.
A step up from such reels as the Shimano Curado. With its sleek metallic blue look on top of an A7075 aircraft grade aluminum spool, 8 bearing system, and 7.3 Hyper Speed gear ratio, the Daiwa Coastal TWS Saltwater Baitcasting Reel comes packed with fishing technology. If you take all these features and compare them to the asking price, you’ll get a value that any saltwater fisherman would be eager to take advantage of!
The Daiwa Coastal TWS 200 Saltwater Baitcasting Reel is a lightweight model, weighing in at a respectable 8.1 ounces. It has a spool capacity that ranges from 165 yards of 14 lb mono line, up to 100 yards of 20 lb monofilament line. It can hold 190 yards of 40 lb braid, and up to 145 yards of 55 lb braided line. Casting distance and drag capacity are its prominent features, and the Daiwa Coastal TWS is completed with a fine addition of useful technology.
The Daiwa Coastal TWS Saltwater Baitcasting Reel makes good use of some powerful technology. It keeps the reel light, but gives it added line capacity. It’s built strong on the inside to withstand the force of heavy fish pulling against an effective drag system. It might not be quite at the level of reels like the Abu Garcia Revo MGXTREME, but its value makes it well worth the price.
The Daiwa Coastal TWS 200 Baitcaster makes use of existing branded technology put together to make a medium priced and extremely effective fishing tool. Three features stand out.
There’s not much to bring up here. Trading apples for oranges is what it comes down to. Fishermen have their own preferences when it comes to reels in this category and price range, and might desire other features besides long casting and lightweight properties. Any real upgrade would surely come at an increase in price.
The Daiwa Coastal TWS 200 Saltwater Baitcasting Reel would make a fine addition to any inshore saltwater collection. Daiwa again offers a package of technology and durability at an incredible price. Use this reel in your local saltwater lagoons, or on those inshore kelp boating trips. Float tube any saltwater bay, or switch it over to large freshwater bass fishing.
