Unmatched power and toughness with total control. A high specification reel to pioneer a new era. Designed to exhibit full strength under pressure, catching the largest fish in the oceans with ease.
Full metal (Aluminum) body construction with DAIWA’s original MONOCOQUE (MQ) body concept supports a machine-cut TOUGH DIGIGEAR made from G1 Duralumin to provide unmatched crank power and extra strength to the drive gear.
Designed to allow anglers to control fish under any conditions, with enough power to gain an extra wind against any large predator an angler may encounter.
Equipped with a new Aluminum AIRDRIVE ROTOR to provide rotation with low inertia and extra strength, the reel is equipped with the latest advanced technology and specifications.
Monocoque MQ Body: Provides a one piece, rigid body that ensures perfect alignment of all gearing componentry, reduces unnecessary entry points to offer better sealing, and allows for an oversized Main Gear (up to ~30% larger than competitor sized Main Gears).
G1 Duralumin Gear Drive: New gear design combined with G1 Duralumin material creates the pinnacle of gear strength and precision. With increased strength of up to 130% to support the reel under the harshest conditions. This gear design reduces the amount of wear, including twist and deformation to both the drive & pinion gears. This gear design combined with MQ body creates the pinnacle of saltwater spinning reels.
Magseal Technology & Magsealed Bearings: MAGSEALED is a technology that implements a special liquid material developed originally for aerospace engineering called MAGOIL. MAGOIL is used to create a water and dust-resistant barrier in lieu of traditional rubber seals. This is an innovative water resistance method that maintains rotational performance. The ultimate focus of MAGSEAL was to protect the gearing inside the reel body and the bearings. Two of the key components to protect if overall performance is to be preserved. MAGSEALED bearings have been designed to last longer than traditionally sealed ball bearings. The balls are encapsulated in a completely waterproof housing. The inner and outer rings are magnetised and joined by waterproof and stable MAGSEALED oil.
Airdrive Rotor: AIRDRIVE ROTOR gives control back to the angler, allowing the reel to perform exactly as intended by lowering the inertia required to both start & stop winding rotation. By showcasing an easy winding sensation, AIRDRIVE ROTOR allows the angler to react quickly and instantly to bites, especially on slack line. By reducing the weight of the rotor and re-shaping the design, the rotation of the reel has been improved. Lower inertia gives better control with reduced effort required by the angler.
Airdrive Bail: Daiwa has constructed a bail smaller in diameter whilst providing required strength to achieve a further weight reduction to the front unit. Daiwa has adjusted the angle of bail setting to improve the line movement into the roller. Daiwa has also re-engineered bail trip mechanism with aim to provide a precision open & close movement to give enhanced feeling to angler while in use.
Airdrive Shaft: An innovative, non-contact structure between the main shaft and the pinion gear. In addition to this, both ends of pinion gear are now supported with bearings to relay the crank power from the handle to the rotor with a higher level of efficiency. By adding high quality collars to the main shaft, rotational noise has been reduced significantly. AIRDRIVE SHAFT creates the feel of smooth, quiet rotation and provides anglers with torque and power.
