Daiwa's T-Wing System solves an age old problem
with baitcasting reel levelwind systems.

The "T" aperture allows line to flow freely through
the wide top section on outcast, reducing the
normally sharp angles and friction that slow line
flowing through a narrow aperture when exiting the

For retrieve, line drops into the narrow, lower
channel of the T wing for even distribution across
the spool width.

Wide aperture for casting—narrow aperture 
for levelwinding.

Hood Up Casting
When the clutch is depressed, the
hood lifts slightly for casting, allowing
line to flow freely through the wide,
upper part of the "T".

Reduced Line Angle—Reduced Casting Friction
With ordinary levelwind reels, line coming off the spool ends is forced through the line guide at a sharp angle. The result is casting friction, especially when the line guide is parked on one side of the reel. The T-Wing's wider aperture means reduced angles and less line friction from any position.
Hood Down Retrieve
On retrieve, the hood automatically lowers, channeling line through the narrow, lower part of the "T" for precision line winding.
Lower Profile—Less
Casting Friction

On some ordinary reels, line slaps against the upper frame crossbar.
T-Wing reels are lower than most, yet their design eliminates the frame crossbar for reduced line friction
