Certate

RRP From $849.99
In 2004 we introduced the Real Four Concept in the original Certate – Real engine, Real control, Real endurance, Real custom, setting the new standard in spinning reel design and innovation. Since then, Certate has continually evolved and developed through several incarnations to become the Worlds most advanced spinning reel. Certate’s history is epoch making – a revolutionary progress. The new revolution begins with 16 Certate.

Certate Features and Technology
"After the Line Roller, prevention of water ingress into the gear system via the reel handle is the next revolutionary step to maintain ultra smooth rotation and longevity of the reel. Traditional bearings require packing with grease or oil and metal or rubber seals which can restrain contamination by water and foreign matter. This creates friction and impedes smooth rotation of the reel, while minimal twist in the bearings during rotation, can result in penetration of foreign matter, causing abnormal noise and declined rotational performance. Daiwa has improved the use of traditional CRBB ball bearings by combining them with a fully contained external Magsealed membrane. Water intrusion via the Magsealed Ball Bearings is now a thing of the past, and when they are placed into the gearbox system of the reel, they prevent invasion of water and dust, maintaining the bearings original light, ultra smooth performance. Preventing dust and salt intrusion, greatly reduces reel noise and corrosion and ultimately improves the long-term durability of the reel."
Airbail features a hollow, tubular bail arm for maximum rigidity and strength, with minimum weight. The smooth, protrusion free design ensures lose line, common after a cast, slides easily down the bail onto the line roller during the retrieve, eliminating line tangles.
"Especially for our reels with oil barrier (Mag Sealed reels) mechanism we have developed a complete new Air Rotor. So the enormous strains, which affect the rotor via the line and the line roller are better distributed. This causes less pressure on the single parts of the rotor. The new rotor is 15% more light weighted than usual rotors of the same material - this reduces vibrations and enhances the rotational balance thanks to a very low centre of gravity."
"Given the popularity of saltwater fishing, reducing water penetration into the reel is a major goal to minimise corrosion and promote longer life and better performance. If saltwater infiltrates a reel and dries, it crystallises, and then erodes gears and bearings. Through years of research and development, Daiwa found the solution – a membrane of magnetic oil, in conjunction with magnets between the body and the rotor of the reel, which greatly reduces the penetration of water inside the body via the main shaft. Being magnetised this lubrication system avoids any friction, reduces dust intrusion, eliminates oil spray and improves reel life expectancy."
"Daiwa’s latest exclusive high density carbon resin body material. Lighter and stronger than alloys and 100% corrosion resistant."
The Certate introduces innovations and unparalleled designs, with the combination of Monocoque, Magseal, Magseal Bearings, Air Rotor, ATD and Zaion, making it Daiwa’s most sensitive and powerful technically advanced reel ever developed. You will feel more connected to lures, detect more bites and fight fish with ease….with Certate it is Technology to Feel. The first thing you notice when you pick up the 16 Certate is its solid feel. The machined super alloy body and Zaion rotor is incredibly strong yet lightweight. Its precision engineering supports the re-vamped high accuracy Digigear II drive and silent oscillation system to produce smoother rotary efficiency and increased cranking power like never before. Combine this with Magsealed and Magsealed Bearings and the 16 Certate is the smoothest, most powerful reel Daiwa has ever released. Employing Daiwa’s ultimate reel technology – Magsealed, Magsealed Bearings, Magsealed Line Roller, ATD, Zaion, Airbail (one piece construction), Digigear II and an all new Air Rotor, each Certate is individually constructed and made with the highest quality materials available. Designed for the serious angler, the 2016 Certate sets the standard for the ultimate and future in spinning reel technology.
