A special collaboration reel, the APIA Ventura was released in September 2015. The reel is a joint venture between Anglers Utopia (APIA), Daiwa, and SLP Works. The reel is based on the Certate 2016 model, thus sharing similar attributes. It was available in two models, the 2508R-H Speed Custom and the 3012 Lunker Custom. The reel comes standard with Magseal bearings, UTD (3012) and ATD (2508) drags, and Air Rotor. APIA also included a spare T-Handle knob with each reel that is colored red as opposed to the stock black T-Handle knob, both of which are made of SLP's high grip material. SLP works offered to swap the 3012's UTD to ATD for customers who so desire for ¥3,500.
