Howzit Junaid

I think they look similar to the daiwa sweepfire range that we have here in SA,but im not 100% sure.

They probably bring them in with different branding name here or maybe even bring the same stuff but cheaper quality you know,but i can try and find out.

Cheers Riymos

Junaid I have a Daiwa Exeller 4000, bought recently from MIAS in JHB. They stock the whole range from 1000 - 4000.

Just checked mine out, it's actually the Exceler 4000E. This is the range that the guys on ESA use for dropshot - mainly the Exceler 2000. The 4000 is more of a spinning reel...

In fact Jun... I've just seen an advert for the Exceller in the ESA mag - they stock them at Kingfisher in Durban.
