KIX LT SPINNING REELS

RRP From $369.99
The core principle of ‘tough’ was central to the design concept for the KIX.

Building on the solid based platform of previous LT Concept reels the KIX benefits from the addition of an Aluminium Body, Aluminium Spool, Aluminium Side Plate, and a solid machined Aluminium ‘screw-in’ handle design. This has achieved a significant increase in structural rigidity and resulted in increased rotational efficiency and durability.

KIX LT SPINNING REELS 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."
Digital gear design ensures a perfect mesh between ultra-tough, surface treated alloy drive gear and marine bronze pinion gear for optimized speed, power and durability.
"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."
The KIX LT is one of the latest generation of spinning reels to feature Daiwa’s new LT Body & Spool Concept – ‘Light & Tough’.

The core principle of ‘tough’ was central to the design concept for the KIX. Building on the solid based platform of previous LT Concept reels the KIX benefits from the addition of an Aluminium Body, Aluminium Spool, Aluminium Side Plate, and a solid machined Aluminium ‘screw-in’ handle design. This has achieved a significant increase in structural rigidity and resulted in increased rotational efficiency and durability.

Leveraging off this solid base platform the KIX LT incorporates Daiwa’s revolutionary Digigear II Drive System. Through advanced technology Daiwa has developed a high precision cutting technique that achieves perfect gear meshing and ultra-smooth performance.

Featuring many of Daiwa’s other design innovations like Air Rotor, ATD, Airbail, and washable design, the KIX LT introduces a new ‘Tough’ perspective within the LT Concept range of light tackle spinning reels. Setting a new standard in performance and design possibilities.
