ABS Anti Blacklash system

Daiwa’s unique reverse taper results in less line tangle and longer castability also. The oversized design provides higher winding speed and better drag performance.

ABS spool

The ABS spool assists with trouble free line management. The reverse taper of the spool enables greater line control and increased casting distance while minimizing unwanted line loops and tangles, while the large spool diameter reduces line memory coil and allows line to flow freely in large coils with less casting friction. The oversized design provides higher winding speed even with low gear ratios and more efficient drag performance. The result is a reel that casts easily to achieve maximum casting distance with optimum line management performance.

Air Rotor

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.

Airbail

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.

ATD

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.

Corrosion resistant ball bearings CRBB

Shielded For Extra Protection. Unlike ordinary ‘corrosion resistant’ bearings with an unprotected open race, Daiwa’s CRBB bearings are shielded to seal out sand, fi ne grit, salt crystals and other abrasives for even longer life.

Digigear

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.

Infinite Anti-Reverse

Limits rearward backplay handle movement to almost zero for solid hooksets with less shock to the reel. No handle slap-back on hooksets and no release of slack line.

Mag Sealed

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.

Magsealed Line Roller

Not content with Magsealing the rotor/anti-reverse system, Daiwa introduces fully contained Magsealed bearings in the line roller system to attenuate water intrusion, maintain rotation smoothness (reducing line twist) and increase part longevity. The line roller bearing is the first part on the reel to contact saltwater. Introduced to spinning reels over 20 years ago, it has now reached the pinnacle of evolution with the addition of Magsealed ball bearings.

Monocoque body

The Monocoque body is a symmetrical, one-piece structure that will revoultinize future generations of spinning reel design. Monocoque has been introduced firstly into the Certate HD models. The Monocoque design will give anglers opportunities for more powerful fishing styles with lighter tackle.

Real Four technology

Real Engine, Real Control, Real Endurance, Real Custom – the jewel of Daiwa Technology is the future direction from Daiwa in the design of spinning reels.

Twistbuster

Twist Buster is Daiwa’s original advanced technology designed to reduce line twist. Powered by the new CRBB (Corrosion Resistant Ball Bearing), the Twist Buster II line roller not only minimises line twist, but also reduces further friction between the line and the roller.

UTD

The DAIWA Ultimate Tournament Drag System includes impregnated drag discs, which are about 30 times more durable than normal discs.

The effective drag power is considerably increased compared to normal drag systems.

An additional advantage is the reduced start-up resistance - the drag starts working, when the adjusted drag power is reached and drags smoothly and steadily.

Washable

Intensive studies of saltwater infl uence have resulted in the development of a washable construction for saltwater use. A water \‘duct\’ at the bottom of reel allows effective water discharge and simplifi es maintenance by allowing the reel to be washed after use, without concern for drainage.

Zaion

Daiwa’s latest exclusive high density carbon resin body material. Lighter and stronger than alloys and 100% corrosion resistant.
