Daiwa Pixy PX68 PX68L and 2004/2005 Baitcaster Reviews

UPDATED July 24, 2022

By James Alonzo

The Daiwa Pixy is found in the Japanese market, reflecting fishing star fans’ excitement. The best fishing rods are only available in the Japanese market.

I got a lot of popularity when I first wrote about this little bait caster Daiwa Japan in 2004.

Daiwa Pixy PX68 PX68L

Pixy is used in at least six articles with other reels as the subject of only two lines. I have reviewed it best and searched harder to write about it.

At least six articles have featured Pixy, or comparisons to others have been made.

Our review covers it individually, compares sit to the 04 limited yellow measure it up to the press and offered displays the super tuned pixzilla in our review.

Some time ago, we launched the 2010 version of this reel, the PX68. Could you take a look at it and try to know it?

This reel was featured last year on the px68. But before we let you know about the performance of the reel.

I want to tell you that Daiwa Japan released another version, the px68SPR. Looking at the one he launched earlier this year, we can say what is good.

It’s about Pixy, who has cast a spell on all these people as if they want to use the same reel. Let’s go ahead and see how the pre-tuned Pixy works its magic.

My impressions

If you have tried to know px68 and have read the article on the 2010 version, then you can guess the difference between the px68 and 2010 versions of this reel.

It means that many new features have been used in the PX68. Among the features used are a beefier drag system, slightly higher line capacity, faster ratio, and faster handle.

The form of fat remains the same as fat as size and shape are concerned. But this is an ounce compared to the 2004 Daiwa Liberto pixy.

It is a micro-adjustment reel. It is like any fine piece of machinery. That makes the difference. And px68 is a real micro-tuned version.

Field Trial

Nevertheless, even though tweaks adjustment tunings and their improvement in the testing, what do they dually perform in the water?

I’ve also been holding a real pixy and a stock for a while now. Can you even feel the difference between px68 and stock?

The px68 is much more responsive than a stock-modified Pixie from 2003 to 2008.

The only way to tell the difference between a px68 rail and stock is to try both. This ready reel performs well but can be vetted into a pixzilla, making it much more useful.

You can make it much more useful with a pixzilla just to the point where once you own one, it’s hard to imagine using any other reel.

It is a later idea for them, especially those who use Pixy and px68, as only one is missing.

It is under the worm leveling drive, which let me test if it would compare well to my pixzilla reels.


As we mentioned last year, the Black Racer is much lighter than the Black Raven.

The two different sticks I used to combine the px68 first the DX742cFH, and the second a Kaleido Black Racer, an evergreen reel. It is similar to the MBR842C GLX from G.

Loomis, in terms of handling spring, the px68 with 10Ib suffix 832 maximized its line capacity and used a fluorocarbon guide of 10Ib sugar Tatsu.

Holding the Daiwa px68 in your hand feels like you are holding the original Pixy. However, the spool weight was down one gram compared to the original.


The fastest retrieval ratio in Daiwa Px68 is 6.8: 1, higher than 5.81. making it appropriate for more applications.

While using this reel,l fished both soft plastics and jerk baits, and it handled them all without any problem.

Our official measurements were 24 inches per turn for the px68 with a full-line spool. The more out of line you are, the higher the rate will be.

This handle is designed for this purpose. The hand is closer to the reel’s center, allowing you to retrieve it more effectively.

According to the reasoning, but on my reels, it is hardly noticeable. I have no problem with the handle design of Many Daiwa. I like its handle, and I like the design.


When we set up the original Pixy in 2004, it weighed more than three pounds. The original Pixy provides an excellent drag.

This Pixy is made of a metal key washer. In 2004, the original Pixy featured a soft felt washer paired with a metal keyed washer. Pixzilla is one of the main reasons for upgrading.

Daiwa Pixy reel that cleverly replaces someone. Pix Zilla can deliver drag pressure of 5to11 pounds or more, which you use to upgrade the reel.

Update, as well as whether you polish the metal washers of your drag stack.

Tested at maximum pound pressure in our lab Bugzilla-esque. The stock with the drag stack that exists is very impressive. Never use the drag button below.


Just over a year ago, the Daiwa px68 was introduced, although you need to wait a little to get one.

If you want a new reel, you can buy it from any shop in a week or two. We waited a long time for Daiwa USA to come soon, and finally, Pixy came into the market, so people were eager to buy it.


  • The pixy platform provides a great grip 
  • Use it as a spinning reel
  • Super tuned to the last detail with a beefed-up drag and stylish carbon handle.


  • Importing the reel will be quite costly 
  • It can be used for various purposes, but you will not have much control over it.
  • Micro clicks are not used in drag or cast control 

Final thoughts

The Px68 has emerged as one of the best reels and has caused quite a stir in the US, and it is also rumored that Daiwa will soon build a new reel.

Px68spr is a new version of Pixy and Sports Center Fogel. Instead of magnetic brakes, Daiwa Px 68 is 85% luckier than other reels.

Daiwa Pixy 2004/2005

We reviewed Daiwa Japan’s Fighter Light Daiwa Pixie in 2004, and we praised it because it is incredibly lightweight and the best bait caster.

A yellow pearl finish is present on the test model, a 2004 limited edition pixy.

The main reason is whether the reel is lighter than its pre-existing wings is to use a Duralumin spool.

Whether it will be affected or not. This year’s Daiwa liber to Pixy has been redesigned to be different colors.

Touching the limited edition Pixy is unique; it can play the best game. The metal almost feels bare to the touch.

A 2004 pixy, however, has a shiny, glittery finish that is extremely smooth and close to having a plastic-like touch in your hand.

Review and analyze

The difference in the weight of these reels is the first factor that makes the difference between these reels.

We weighed each element individually for this complex process until a solution was found.

After that, we used our reels as a series of stitching and patching exercises.

We tested the casting and pitching abilities of the reels but stopped testing all other components. If the reel is similar, we found these results.

What’s Spool?

It was the initial information about the 2005 Pixy. This reel is not at all like other Pixy models.

We removed the spool from several reels and discovered the 2005 Duralumin spool, which weighed 14 grams.

Lower than 15G, it is a spool. So people who suffer from anorexia nervosa need constant light reels.

We are trying our best to get a Duralumin 05 spool so that somehow one gram of weight loss is the same as the weight difference of your first model Pixy.

How it works

 Material differences between the spools ate the cause of one gram of the four-gram weight variation, so what about the three other grams?

When we tried to disassemble the reels, the first problem was the handles. The original handle weighed 22 grams.  

Compared to 05 pixies forged aluminum handles last model year, Pixy handles were sealed with aluminum 05 pixy cause 1 gram 04 pixies. 

The lock nut weighed 4 grams. Three mysterious grams were three. Ok, we know that our anorexia-afflicted readers are going to ask next.


We rotated each of our Pixy reels with a 14 lb fireline only for those interested in actual performance.

We did our job according to the challenge we had. There are using some testing materials.

  • Senko Lite: It is 2 grams lighter than the original, and it weighs about 99 grams. It weighs a little less, and therefore it sinks a little slowly. We moved our Pixie to the G.loomis MBR844cGLX two heavy Action Bars to test it. It is not considered when buying Daiwa Liberto Pixy, but it is very important.
  • Finesse Worms: We removed two Gary Yamamoto 4-cut tail worms for a casting test, served our pixies with a g.loomis cr7211mx casting rod, and hooked our worms together. The performance was almost identical. The finesse baitcaster is a very good reel.
  • UL-jerkbait: Our third test, which was very challenging in terms of meaning, was made with just a live X-ray jerk bait smolt suspended at 35 grams. We can easily fold these small pieces together with spinning gear. The Pixy has to be moved in G.Loomis MBR842cGLX with two identical bars. Again, the performance of this Pixy was like pixy 04. I used 04 pixies.
  • Crankbait: We used a crankbait to test our reels. We moved our Pixy to two Kistler Helium LTA He 70 MLCS to see how far our Pixy could throw fodder. There was not much difference between these reels.

Final thoughts

Pixy 2005 has some special cosmetic differences compared to its other professionals, and a slight difference in weight can be noticed when it is held in both hands.

This Duralumin spool is designed for use in places other than sports. The 2005 pixy has many positive points. If you like red, this Pixy is worth considering.
