Amazing!This is the best reel I've ever bought for under $100. I've had it for almost a year now and like stated below it has great drag and cast for miles. Three months ago I went on vacation at the beach and brought it along, well for two weeks straight and the salt water,sand, and the fish gave it a brutal beating. Even after all the elements it never once derailed from being smooth casting machine. After getting back from vacation I made the mistake of not washing my reels off and 6 weeks later it was time to go fishing. Needless to say without a drop of oil or grease I picked it up and went fishing without a single problem! My Abu on the other hand was not so lucky.

Daiwa excellerI bought the Daiwa coastal exceller 100Ha, and the regular exceller 100 and I bought about 5 of each one, and I bought 3 of the 100HSA and all the Daiwa reels have bought including this particular one have been excellent, comfortable, lightweight, smooth, and very well priced when on sale. All together I own close to 15 Daiwa reels and they are all awesome even the ones that are still in the box as my backups

Excellent reel, first Diawa ive ever bought.I bought it a few days ago, as long as u adjust the reel correctly, you'll have no issues with backlashes. I bought the 4.9 gear ratio for deep cranking.

Regarding the gear ratio of the Daiwa Exceler EXE100 Baitcast Reel and using 6.3:1 as an example:
- The number before the colon denotes the rotations the spool makes per one complete turn of the reel's handle. So a 6.3:1 ratio means the spool revolves 6.3 times with each handle turn. The larger the first number, the more line retrieved on each crank.
This is important when one needs to be able to cast more frequently (tournament) which can occur when more line can be retrieved.
A lower gear ratio (5.1:1 - 5.4:1) is ideal for big baits that pull a lot, such as deep crankbaits. These reels have the highest amount of torque, allowing you to put less effort into retrieving the bait and more energy towards finding the fish. Deep crankbaits, big swimbaits and deep water spinnerbaits are all good baits for a lower gear ratio.
A medium gear ratio (6.1:1 - 6.4:1) is great for multiple techniques and presentations, making them very popular among bass anglers. Squarebill crankbaits, medium depth crankbaits, shallow spinnerbaits and shallow castable umbrella rigs can be used with a medium gear ratio.
A higher gear ratio (7.1:1 - 8.1:1) is good for when fishing any lure that you primarily work with your rod. You're often pulling the bait with your rod tip, but you need to have the ability to quickly take up your slack when you get a bite. A fast reel also helps when fighting a big bass - you need all the speed you can get in order to quickly pull it away from any line-fraying hazards. Topwaters, jerkbaits, jigs, plastics and even lipless crankbaits warrant the use of a high speed reel.
